List your ringtones! These are mine:

Dancing Queen
I Will Survive
Eye of the Tiger
Phandom of the Opera
Wizzard of Oz...If I Only Had a Brain (when my sister calls!)
Milkshake
Fortunate Son (CCR)
Law and Order Theme

And some tone I don't recognize something dashboard confessions...my babysitter downloaded it on my phone.

So share with us your personal ringtones...ones you love, ones you hate.

If I get a new "kewl" phone I'm probably going to get Auburn's fight song as a ringtone. War Eagle, baby!

The people that work across the hall from me have this ring tone that sounds like something out of some weird 1960's movie. It is soo annoying. Every day I want to go into their office when they are not in and bash their cell phone to a million pieces. And security is going to be trying to carry me out and IM going to rush back in and bash a few more times at the pieces of plastic - and of course of all irony as im leaving it will still be ringing

Rufus Wainwright said it best: My phone's on vibrate for you.

I don't make statements with store-bought creativity.

Plus, if the phone in MY pocket is ringing, then I can tell it's mine.
And I don't want YOU to know about it.

Fortunately, my work put a ban on custom ring tones on all company phones. Soooo, no one has songs playing constantly. Good times I tell ya...good times.

Not to be harsh, but I like for mine to sound like a damn phone! Used to put it on vibrate, but that tend's to scare the bejesus out of me.... Oh, but my very favorite is OFF, damnit! *goes to make sure his damn phone is turned off*

I don't even know what my cell phone ringtone sounds like. I only use it for outgoing calls.

Go Air Force.

I also hate people who talk into their cell phones as if calling for mortar support on the Mekong Delta.

War Eagle, RedHairedScot!

I don't have any special ringtone, but a friend has "Sweet Home Alabama" on his and it made me smile when I heard it. He's from Indiana.

That just described half of my family!! LOL

They all use that stupid push to talk (e.g. walkie talkie) on Nextel and consantly talk just like that. You'd think they were planning a mission to save hostages in Beruit instead of talking about Aunt Brenda's birthday.

I was so happy when I bought my Nokia 6230 and it had several business rings on it. It plays MP3s, etc., but I have headphones so no one else needs to hear them too. The last Nokia I had (3595) didn't have a single plain ring on it and I was really disappointed.

I want nothing but the sound of an old-school phone. I watch the ads for garbage ringtones on TV and I just want to cry. People *pay* for that crap!

I downloaded a bunch of free MIDI ringtones to my wife's phone. NOt that i really care, i was just trying to figure out how to do it. On mine, i just searched for the loudest one and picked it. It is louder than my home telephone. All i care is that i can hear it.

On my old phone i had a bunch of neat rings like an old telephone, one that yelled my name, etc. I've even thought about making my own. Then i also thought....................Why?
