Deleting ring tones to free up phone memory space

I tried going to "settings and tools" on my phone and to memory then phone memory to delete old ringtones i don't want to download new ones and it doesn't delete. i also tried going straight to the "music and tones" applications and then to my ringtones to delete them that way and they still dont delete. I noticed next to the ringtones is a YELLOW bell as opposed to a GREEN bell next to the there anything i can do?

    I am also having this problem. Sometimes the ringtones I download will play for a day, then be either cut short or not play at all. Then when I try to delete them, they go to the yellow bell instead of the green one, and they wont delete.

    I have the exact same problem.  When I go to the "yellow" ringtones and select their "file info", my phone will immediately shut off.

    i have that problem too. i cant delete them or use them and my phone restarts when i try to look at the file info

    I've noticed that when I delete them, the files actually do delete (in a sense) but the filenames remain and the file stays as 0.0 KB.

Downloaded a ringtone for LG 420g. The mp3 file plays but says it's to big to use as a ringtone. Some files included w/phone are larger and work. File size 469.0KB

it could be a problem of not enough phone memory if the phone takes a memory card then move all photos etc onto the memory card if it doesnt you may have to delete some files to make the song you want as a ringtone go to the phone settings and then to memory settings to see how much memory is taken up on your phone it may be as simple as deleteing one or two files

I downloaded a couple of songs to use as ringtones and they are in the correct folder on my card. I set one as my ringtone and called my cell phone from my house phone and it worked. I cut my phone off and...

Just a thought: perhaps your card slot gets disabled whilst in stand-by, as part of the power management procedure. Probably, after you wake your phone up, after a little while, your songs will play as ringtones again. Try to copy them to your phone's internal memory, instead (and delete them from the card, so that they won't show doubled).
Hope it works for you.
Cheers! Carlos

Nokia 6555b can not send or receive multi messages

hi if your going on about mms messages then all you need to do is contact your service provider and they will then send you these settings via text message that will update your phone to the correct settings. if how ever you mean your having problem sending multiple message ie more than one page then the problem is going to be more likely that your memory is full so try deleting any old messages in inbox and out box and also delete all the ringtones that you never use as alot of people never use the ringtones that came with the phone so deleting these will free up loads of memory.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Lg envy music download says no available space

Go to Menu, then under the "Settings & Tools" section, choose option 8 (Memory). Choose option 2 (Phone Memory), then option 1 (Phone Memory Usage). This will tell you the available MB on your phone.

Or, go to Memory, choose option 3 (Card Memory), then Card Memory Usage.

If you have 0MB left on both, then you will need to delete some ringtones, wallpaper, music, etc. to clear up some space.

If you still have room, you will have to take the phone to a Verizon store. More than likely if this is the case, the phone has a glitch in the downloading. You may of downloaded a virus while downloading music/ringtones/wallpaper.

your phone memory is just 1.5 MB and there is no external memory available for your phone eventhough the ringtone may be just KB'S your phone may have used most of 1.5 mb for its ram,contacts,inbox,outbox and other settings and any ringtones that would have already available in the phone So please delete any pre-available tones in the phone and try again
