    Ring Tones

    OK admit it, you not only have a cell phone, but you also have a favorite ring tone. What is it?

    I guess I'm boring. My favorite is "vibrate" and "ringer1".
    Why isn't 11 pronounced onety one?

    "Vibrate" and "meeting mode" (i.e. silent). When I can't have it on silent, I just use the one that sounds the most like a standard touchtone telephone ringing. I have some ideas about what song I would use if I had an MP3-capable phone, but I'm not sure I'd be able to stand anything other than a straightforward ring.

    I use 'Green Onions', with it, I know when it's my phone ringing and I don't have to do the "Is that ME?" shuffle.

    90% of the time my phone is on vibrate, but right now I have the Monday Night Football theme as the ring. My favorite of all time was the Indiana Jones theme, but that was a couple phones ago and I haven't looked it up for my current one....

    Keep mine on vibrate most of the time, but if not, it's usually on Ringer 5, which is the gayest sounding one I could find

    My theme is 1980's and 1990's TV shows.
    • Airwolf - the main ringtone and any unclassified callers who don't already have their own ringtone. This gets automatically replaced by Knight Rider when connected to the carkit.
    • Simpsons - family
    • Space Above and Beyond - friends
    • Mission Impossible - appointment and meeting reminders
    • er - priority/emergency (I run my own VOIP gateway that's setup to "fake" a caller-ID sequence to trigger this)
    • Futurama - work/business

    I tend to avoid ringtones that are actual songs because it's hard to distinguish them from say a song playing on a radio. Also, I use my phone as an mp3 player a lot of times and if I used my favourite songs as my ringtones then things might get confusing.

    I did something like that once. I had gotten a new phone for a business trip (didn't have a phone that worked in Europe back then). I was playing around with it and accidently switched the language to Turkish. Luckily one of the folks I was travelling with is a Turk and helped me switch it back.

    Good thing you had a Turk handy. I was surprised how little I could guess at -- took me a long time to switch it back!

    I forget what the tone is called, but basically it's just the loudest ring (ring, not a F*$%!ing song). It kinda sounds like an old-school phone ring...like the way phones rang when I was a kid.

    What format? I usually take WAV files, edit and convert them if necessary. Although my phone can play midi, wav and mp3 ringtones.

    My cell phone is always on vibrate. There's a joke in there somewhere.

    Personal cell: Rob Zombie, Superbeast (very loud, and I doubt anyone else is using it.)

    Work cell: Some weird blurpy ringer thing....it was the only one pre-loaded on the phone that wasn't used by anyone else there, or was a crappy song beat...

    ....no, I don't want to hear a really bad euro-beat when working...work is torture enough.
