What's your ringtone?

Postby smelllikelime » Sun Apr 18, 2004 9:14 am

So yesterday, I finally got one of those nifty new phones that I can download custom ringtones on. It's also the kind that slides open, how fucking cool is that?!

I've already downloaded three different tones:

"Power of Love" by Huey Louis and the News
"Toxic" by Britney Spears
the "What's Happening!" theme song

Kick ass. What's yours?

I used to have "bandages" by hot hot heat just to annoy the shit out of everyone who was around me when my phone rang. now I've got a different phone and I need the internet on the phone to download ringtones and I was all like, "eff that shit. I ain't got $15 extra to spend a month." so I have a boring ring.

I've got a rather ancient nokia and I don't have the option for all these fancy downloadable ring tones so I've got one that I believe is called simply 'Bee.' Assorted roommates think it's annoying, but I always hear it and it's not really common so I don't go for my phone whenever everyone elses' rings...boring but functional, I guess.

When I move to New Mexico in 4 months I can get a fancy new phone (or I can be cheap as usual and go for whichever model is free :)

What's Happening theme song ringtone? AWESOME!

I'm of the school of grumpy normal beep ringtones, that way, whenever someone's phne rings, there's a possibility that it might be mine. haha.

I've been thinking about a tune ringtone though, I must admit, and I think it might be The Final Countdown.

Either that or something by Ozzy Osborne.

i also have the cheap model (motorola, though, not nokia).

the ringtone setting i have it on is called "cosmic" which was picked for the same reasons new girl picked her's: it's annoying and rare.

i miss my old nokia that had the "beep" ring tone. it sounded like this:

beep... BEEP beep BEEP... BLEEBLOPBLEECRAZYANDSOONBEEP

Everytime I have a phone call, I am informed by Steely Dan's "Reelin' in the Years.' It's soooo radical!!!

I purposely chose to not have ringtones, a camera, games or anything that's not phone-centric on my cell. Its a phone! I want it to ring, and I want to answer it. DEATH TO CAMERA PHONES! I also agree with Carson: Your cell phone is NOT an accessory.

If tia carrere had adapted the song for Gameboy(the original one), that's about how it sounds.

which phone do you have? is this just some dumb cingular thing where you can't get cool ringtones unless you have the interweb? LAMEST THING, EVER.

I curse you, my 3oz cellular phone.

because I can't get ringtones, either, unless I get the internet. which I won't. but FUCK! for "push it"? that $15 seems worth it.

I find that the only ring-tones that really come across intelligibly are 80's synth-pop and Hip Hop and I am neither disturbed enough to have "Sweet Dreams (are made of this)" nor am I funk-a-delic enough to pull of "Big Pimpin'"

my phone goes Ring Ring
which is an Abba song, but somehow my phone doesn't sound like the original

in fact I don't use my phone much and get called even less, so I don't even know my sound very well.

all I can say to Betty: Final Countdown, no way.
my colleague had that ringtone, and it annoys from the very first time,
even when the song itself is of course brilliant beyond compare.
