I just bought a new phone and I do not like the default ringtones/notification sounds, but I like the ones on my old phone.

When I plug my old phone into my computer and go to This PC\KYOCERA\Internal storage\media\audio\ringtones like I have been told to go to for the default ringtones, the only ones that show up are a couple of custom ringtones I had put on previously. I want to extract the default ringtones like AT&T Play On and notification sounds like Syrma, so that I can put them on my new phone.

I would prefer not to install drivers/programs onto my computer, but it would be okay with installing an app on my phone if necessary. I have the default Windows 10 programs on my computer, as well as and file commander and the rest of the default Android 5 apps on my old phone.

Any help would be much appreciated.

    Chances are that someone has already extracted the ringtones from the device rom and published them somewhere in the web. Just search Google for "your-device-name ringtones". – Demis Palma ツ Dec 4 '17 at 11:26

You probably need a file browser on the phone to access (need root), or adb pull

The built-in ringtones are located in


... instead of your Internal Storage.

You can also extract them from a ROM .zip file downloaded from elsewhere without looking into your phone. Just navigate to the same path above and take all files out there.

    adb pull /system/media/audio/ ./ did the trick, special thanks – deFreitas Dec 27 '20 at 15:10
