    I have an HTC Titan phone. I created a bunch of ringtones and copied them over to my phone. When I look under ringtones I see most of them. When I go into Zune and tell them to not sync anymore to my phone and remove them from my collection, they are not being deleted off my phone. They are being deleted off my computer. How do I remove these from the phone without having to manually delete each one?

    When I check the summary it says they have been removed.

    The only way to remove them from the phone is one at a time I'm afraid joshuafox@yourgadgetguy.com.
    (Long Hold / Delete)

    No idea why they aren't deleting for you in Zune if you have the correct settings applied.

    The problem seems to be only with ring tones.

    Perhaps Zune doesn't treat them as part of your collection.

    I only have one personalised ring tone on my phone and it's not in my collection in Zune, but Zune never deletes it from my phone. (Like it does with my music)

    Do you know of a way to make sure when I add them they are part of my collection?

    Not sure to be honest joshua, i have only the one ringtone and it did originally show in my collection but isn't now, but it's still on my phone.

    Hopefully someone who uses ringtones more than I do will be along soon to help you out. :)

    I've recently been doing ringtones so here's my observations:

    1) In Zune, click Settings (for the PC) and verify the Zune folder for music. If you put your ringtones here, they'll go into your collection
    2) In Zune, click Settings (for the phone) and verify the All button under Music is checked. This setting will keep your PC and phone in sync so deletions on the PC will also remove the item on the phone

    For me, it got screwy when I tried to do manual sync on purpose for my pictures. But that's another story for another day. HTH!
