    Is there a way to stop Ringtone mp3 files showing up in the BB10 music library?
    Thanks.

    Try putting them into the "voice" folder using file manager. I save mine to voice folder on SD card

    You can also make a new folder with a ".nomedia" file in it. (it is an empty file. Just the name is important)

    That one is new to me, so you just create a folder called ".nomedia" and put that in the music folder??

    Not exactly. It is a file you place within a folder.
    A .nomedia file is a blank file placed inside a folder. When the media scanner detects the .nomedia file, the media files are not added to the picture/video/music apps.

    So how do you create this file? Is it something that can be done on the phone or create on desktop?

    One way that works is use docs to go on the device and save a .small bit of text to a file. It will have .doc as the file type and you'll have to change the filename using windows and connected via USB or maybe wifi. I haven't found a way to save or rename a file using "." as the first character in BB10.
    I imagine you can skip a step and create this file on the desktop and just copy it to your ringtones folder(s).

    Personally I don't use this method, instead I use your mentioned method of creating a ringtones folder except I put my ringtones folder a little deeper into the sdcard/voice folder, just so I don't get voice recordings mixed in.

    There is already a .nomedia file on your phone that you can copy wherever you want.
    Connect your phone to your PC, start BlackBerry Link, access your internal flash storage and copy the .nomedia file from "misc/android/Android/data/" and paste it in the folder you want. Easy peasy

    Works perfectly. I read about the .nomedia file trick before, but have never had the time to do it(read: baby is a terrible sleeper). I was able to do this one handed, while holding my son, walking around, and bouncing, and swinging, and lunging and Shhhh shhhh shhhhing, and...

    Many thanks for this solution. Now I can listen to music without thinking my wife is trying to call. I just assumed she had impeccable timing by never calling in the middle of a song. We're very tired. Lol.
