    Default ringtones will NOT delete from iphone 4

    Aloha from Hawaii!

    I have a problem and for the life of me I cannot figure it out.

    I created and added some custom ringtones to my itunes library, synced them to my phone..
    there were are few that didnt sound good on phone so I deleted the files from the hard drive and also deleted them from itunes. Then I synced again, and the darn m4r files I just physically deleted from the hard drive and removed from itunes are STILL ON THE PHONE!

    For the life of me I cannot figure out why they wont DELETE from the phone.

    Any suggestions?

    I am using macbook with OSX.. thanks guys in advance!

    Have you done a power reset by holding the lock button and the circle button together until it powers off and release them when the appe logo appears. I will do some searching for a better answer. Aloha!

    I fixed it, I had to use IPHONE EXPLORER and browse the files MANUALLY on the iphone and REMOVE the ringtones.pls

    This removed ALL OF MY (none of the FACTORY INSTALLED!) ringtones from the phone.

    I then readded the ringtones to itunes, picked the ones I now wanted on the phone, synced it, and PRESTO, my old ringtones were gone.

    I could NOT accomplish this via itunes, because it would not let me BROWSE the right directory on the PHONE ITSELF!
