    Only thing I can think to do is to move the sounds to the root of your SD card or perhaps even to the phone itself.

    If that doesn't work, you may have to do something a bit more drastic, like factory wipe the device or take it into a verizon store and let them try to figure it out.

    If you're rooted try moving them to system/media/audio/ringtones

    Oh, just remembered...

    Do you have "Caller ID Readout" set to anything but "Ring Only"? Go to Settings > Call settings > Caller ID Readout. If so, change it to "Ring Only". Caller ID Readout will do it's thing before letting ringtones play. Which, if you're quick to answer your phone, will make it so your ringtones never play.

    If you have your phone plugged in to USB it will not read ringtones from the card and will go back to some default. Are you ringtones working when your phone is unplugged?

    Yes that is correct sometimes you have to do a reboot after a usb disconnection
    Also if you do move your ringtones to your media folder they will stay there but it does mess up after usb disconnection . this has been an ongoing problem with the X

    Apart from an occasional glitch my ringtones are much more stable now than they used to be. Not sure if that is because I am on the Apex ROM or some other unknown reason. Now and then the phone forgets one of my custom tones and goes to default but for the most part they stay the way they are supposed to now.

    Are you using the stock messaging app or another?
