Don't use one. Phone always stays on the vibrate setting.

This. I abhor ringtones, and only have mine on if I'm expecting an important call and don't want my phone tethered to me all day.

But if it is on, it's the Blue Velvet theme. Although, most of the people in my favorites have custom tones despite the fact they're almost never heard.

Re: What's your ringtone?

I really want to make the very opening of "Under My Thumb" by the Stones into a ringtone, but I worry someone will think it has sexist undertones to its use.

My man.

Currently I'm on a Jackie Brown kick, so it's "Strawberry Letter 23" by the Brothers Johnson.

I used to jokingly have my wife set to The Imperial March, figuring she'd never find out

Wife: Fringe theme
Voicemail: Breaking Bad theme
General ringer: The Ytse Jam (Dream Theater)
text: Claptrap "hey!"

But most of the time it's on vibrate so I never hear any of them anyway.

Wife-the chorus to 'devil women' 70's song can't think of who sings it.

Every one else- Sanford and son theme song.
