That's awesome.


Mine is The Replacements Bastards of Young for everyone else, and the Whalers on the Moon song from Futurama for my parents.

"Complete Control" by The Clash.

Used to have just a normal phone ring for the longest time, but decided recently it was time to have more fun with it.

Re: What's your ringtone?

I have a bunch that I created from songs in my iTunes library..

For the longest time I was using a section from Blow My Fuse by Kix. Right now its The Son of Flynn by Daft Punk from the Tron Legacy soundtrack. I've got others like American Idiot, Dreams, Edge of Seventeen, Personal Jesus, Welcome to the Jungle that I alternate between.

I've always thought of setting my voicemail message to George Costanza's answering machine message where he used The Greatest American Hero theme but doesn't work with my name obviously.

Vibrate. Always. I'm in far too many public settings to disrupt with my cleverness.

Re: What's your ringtone?

Mine's just an old school phone ring. I used to love when you get older midi-style versions of songs to use as a ring-tone. Maybe you can still get those, but it's not worth the effort to look. Using some song in it's original form never appealed to me. I liked my ring tone to still sound like a phone. Some of the ones I used to have included Sanford and Son theme, Benny Hill theme, A-Team theme, and the Goldberg (WCW) theme. I always wanted the Wong Fei-Hung theme, but could never find a good version.

Re: What's your ringtone?

A few years ago, I went through and assigned all my contacts a specific movie. The poster is their ID photo and a related song is their ringtone. 95% of my phone use is text, though, so I very rarely hear any of these. I rotate through different movie poster/ringtone combinations for my default wallpaper/ring. Right now, it's The Dark Knight, with the action motif from "Introduce a Little Anarchy", but I think I'm about to change it over to The Third Man. Love that zither!

Re: What's your ringtone?

I can’t believe 9 years later I still have the same main ringtone. I mean it just never gets old. It’s empowering hearing it. Maybe I do need a change, but I dunno.

Anyone else have same ringtone for a long time?

I've had mine for several years. It's not empowering or anything. It gets my attention without annoying other people. I loathe annoying ringtones.

Mine is just one of the standard iPhone ring tones for calls. For text messages I have the Star Trek TOS communicator sound.

Vibrate. Always. We're adults who live in a society, right? Just checking.

Re: What's your ringtone?

Mine is "Square Hammer" by Ghost, but I hardly ever hear it, because I turn my phone to vibrate so often (at work, at the movies, etc) and then forget to turn it back on. Only problem is that on vibrate it's harder to find when I don't remember where I left it.
