You have to PAY to make your phone sound stupid???? Good lord. No, I am definitely never going to be downloading any ringtones. :P

Yeah, Outnumbered, I agree... But you can buy a transfer cord & software for around $20.00 and then make your own ringtones from CDs/MP3 files you already own...

LOL...I'd still prefer my phone to sound like a phone. I guess I'm just too :grandpa: or something to be sucked in to this ringtone stuff. I'd rather have music that sounds like music and a phone that sounds like a phone.

I dunno, it can be kind of romantic or funny... I made a ringtone of Enrique Iglesias' "Hero" to be my wife's ringtone when I called her. She found it to be "cute", but a little too much PDA... You could set up Sammy Kershaw's "National Working Woman's Holiday" for when your work calls you...

You can? What kind of cables/software do you need?

What phone do you have?

If you have a Motorola phone (my wife has the RAZR), you need "mobile phone tools" and the correct cord which goes for around $20 on eBay. The software will even allow you to copy the photos you take with your camera onto your computer, make mp3 ringtones and crop photos to use as your phone's "wallpaper" and upload them to the phone.

This is what I bought, but not from this seller:
http://cgi.ebay.com/...item=5822648168

Nokia, Samsung, and the rest of the gang have their own kits.

LOL, but that song ("Hero") sucks. And my kids don't call me.

I don't know, it's just not my thing. Half the time I can't even figure out what song a ringtone is supposed to be until it's been ringing for about 10 minutes and by that time the person trying to call has given up, and everyone around the person with the phone is ready to lynch them...LOL.

I want to but isnt it that you only get to use the ringtones like 9-10 times for that charge or am I wrong? If so I would really like to have a Christmas one :)

Jana -- First of all, one of my pet names for my wife is Anna Banana (her name is Ann). Secondly... who is your carrier? There is no restriction like that with Cingular (my carrier).

I hardly ever change my ringtone,,,but sometimes get surprised because my daughter will get a hold of it (16 yo) and mess with it! I plan on getting a new cellphone that is up-to-date soon. I can't wait, I don't like the one I have because it doesn't have all things on it like the pic or much of anything else on it.

Yep I put on Carol of Bells from the Trans-Siberian Orchastra! Best Christmas song if you ask me! :) But I think I will down load 1 more just not sure what it will be yet! :)

Verizon... hmmm. I don't know, you could ask customer care. I was thinking the other day that if the ringtone cost you $1.99 and you could only use it 10 times that it would be like $.20 a call. That would be pretty awful. :mad:

I have a feeling that the ringtones are yours to keep... But they won't be transferred if you buy/get a new phone in the future.

Yeah, the prices are insane. $1.99 for a 30-second snippet and the audio quality isn't the best... Or, $.99 for the whole song from iTunes. And then you can make your own custom ringtone...

MIne are unlimited use I believe from Modtones. I did it from my phone... I like how it sounded :) It was loud and cheery, and the entire song of Sleigh Ride plays.... I will call and make sure though before doing anymore.

I have Verizon and the ringtones are yours to keep. I've downloaded a couple of the real tones and you get to keep them. :gd_orange

Last year, I had the midi version of TSO's "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo" (guitar-heavy "Carol of the Bells"). This year, my new cell phone plays MP3s. I purchased the MP3 ringtone last month, and think I'll set it to play starting this week.

I have Verizon as well. I bought one ringtone from them until I learned how to do it for free. Just get a data cable and download til your heart's content :D

Here are step by step instructions that work on my 6100. They can probably be modified for other Verizon phones.

I have been searching for hours for DECENT ringtones for my tracfone. It's the little blue Nokia 1100 and the tones on tracfone.com SUCK! Can anyone point me in the direction of a site that I can get real songs from for my Nokia 1100 and not little beeps like a midi? ~H~

I don't change mine for Christmas, but I have several special ring tones that I use. I have one for my family (Animaniacs Theme Song), one for DH's family (Fraggle Rock), one for my voice mail (Muppet Theme Song), one for my DH (Part of a song by FFH), one for my sister at work (Pinky & the Brain), and I for my friends (You've got a friend in me). I think that's all the different ones I have programmed, I know my phone has a few others, but those are the ones I use.
