  1. I want to add a custom ringtone for sim 1 and dim 2 but right at bottom of list it gives me option for add from device storage which opens up google drive and I don’t have music in there. How do I change it so that it opens up in music list which used to happen?

    1. by default, when you tap the add option to select music as ringtone, you should see a ‘Complete action using’ dialogue with a list of compatible apps on your mobile phone, such as Music, Audio, Google Play Music, etc. If it opens the google drive directly, most likely you have set google drive as the default app for this action. in such case, you can try to clear the defaults of the google drive. see more details from this guide to clear default app settings on Samsung phone.
