I don't know how it happened or why, but I have somehow lost all of the ringtones that came on my phone. There is only one option left on my ringtones list and that is Vibrate. This does me know good if I can't hear the phone ring when it's not on my person. How can I fix this...?

Cell phones have default ringtones installed to them by the manufacturers, there's no way of deleting them even if you reset the factory settings but you can delete those that you have personally dowloaded, saved or added on your tones.
I can give you the steps how but you have to let me know what cellphone unit/handset you are using.
Create a folder named 'ringtones' (without the quotes) on the root of your memory card, and copy the song you want to set as ringtone to that folder. Then, go to 'Menu > Settings > Sound > Phone ringtone'. The song you copied should be available to be selected.
You can set specific ringtones (sound files you copy to that folder, or any system sounds) to the people in your contact list who happen to call you most. This way you would know whos is calling you without even looking at your phone. Anyway, go to 'Contacts', select the contact entry you want to have his/her specific ringtone changed (you can press the search button and type his/her name), and tap 'Menu > Edit'. Slide to the end of the screen and tap the arrow at the right of 'Additional info'. The arrow will face down. Slide to the end of the screen again, and select 'Ringtone'. After selecting the ringtone, tap 'Save'.
Hope you find these informations useful, somehow.
Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further.
This usually happens when you are downloading the ringtone. During the download a piece of the file either got damaged or lost. Call your cellular provider and ask them to refund or resend the ringtone. If they refund you the moey for the ringtone, simply redownload it and you should be fine.
You cannot use the songs you purchase from Vcast as ringtones. You have to actually own the music on your computer and transfer it to your phone. Than you will be able to use that song as a ringtone. Just hit highlight the song and hit menu than set as ringtone.
Did you lose any other info like your contacts or photos? Do you synch your phone up with your computer with the Motorola Phone Tools?
If you lost other information, it sounds like your phone reset itself. When this happens, typically the phone will be like new, out of the box, with no (or very little) information on it that you had added. If this is the case, there is no way to retrieve the lost songs.
I know that Cingular/AT&T allows you to download purchased files only for 24 hours after the sale. Other carriers may have longer grace periods, I'm not sure.
