What do you have set as your ringtone? I've got "Go Home, Get Stoned" set for most callers, my family groups ringtone is Basket Case by Green Day (Do you have the time to listen to me whine...) which fits perfectly. I also have Brown-Eyed Girl, Lets Get it On and Cotton Eyed Joe as ringtones for various groups.

"Cold Hard Bitch" by jet for my sister.....perfect fit. Other than that I let people pick what they want their ring tone to be. A couple of girls I know are set to "London Bridge" by Fergie, and other set to "La La" by Ashlee Simpson. My best bud Ryan is set to "The Future Freaks Me Out" by Motion City Soundtrack. A few others have picked some out for themselves, but anyone else is "Friends of Mine" by Bowling for Soup.

Just a normal ring...I don't like it when I'm sitting in class and all the sudden "My Humps, My Humps, My Lovely Lady Lumps" starts blaring from someone's phone.

Haste the Day - "Long Way Down" (Goo Goo Dolls cover) is my primary

A few friends have unique ringtones:

"Down," "As You Sleep" and "I Woke Up In A Car" by Something Corporate

"Barbie Girl" by Aqua (if you knew the girl you'd understand)

"Feel Good Inc." Gorillaz

"Do You Think You're Better Off Alone?" Alice DJ

"American Idiot" Green Day

"Can't Wait To Be King" Lion King Soundtrack

"Bite To Break Skin" Senses Fail

and maybe a few others I'm forgetting...and then I have a ton more I just don't even use anymore...

Not only do I not want a cell phone, the idear that I would allow people to train me by assigning them each a unique ringtone seems abhorrent to me./snot

it's not training...and they aren't doing it...you do it yourself so you know who's calling before you look at the phone...or to perpetuate an inside joke.

I also have some people with the "Silent" ringtone so my phone never rings when they call because I really don't like them but they just won't go away.

Now is that any way to treat the congressman, after he bought you that phone to begin with? :huh:

I was visiting my buddy in the NASCAR shop in my hometown before it closed down a few months ago. There were a few customers in the back, and we were hanging out by the cash. All of a sudden we hear a woman moaning in the back. We both look around like - where the hell is the porn coming from? Then the guy whips out his phone and answers.

Woman orgasming as a ringtone. I was simply in shock.

Speaking of ringtones, have you guys seen this?

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/06/12/...in1701359.shtml

I saw this on TV and was like WTF? Is this a joke? You're actually charging people for nothing? I'd like to see the morons who buy into this one.

Though, I can deffinitely hear it from that link (must not have had the TV turned up high enough).

No cellphone for me, and I've never had a moment when I thought, "I need a cellphone." Besides, most people just use them to send pointless and stupid text messages... and take stupid photos of themselves which they think are candid but really aren't.

Ringtones can get on my nerves... especially if it's "Sweet Child o' Mine." Hearing it in MIDI just makes me grind my teeth.

Texting comes in handy when I need to get ahold of someone and know they aren't in a position to answer their phone, at work or in class, etc. I can text them and they can get back to me however they would like to. It also came in handy when Alex was born, instead of calling like 20 different people I texted them.

I liked the two-way feature of the Nextel when I had it for work, otherwise the damned cell phone never got used. If someone wants to call me, they can leave a message on my landline so I can screen it. Seeing people on the cell phone constantly, especially while driving, is disgusting to me. It's a waste.

Here's a paraphrase of a cell phone conversation I overheard in Target last weekend:

"Yeah honey, which air freshener do you want? They have Berry, Vanilla Creme, Ocean Mist, Citrus Dawn, Lavender Dew..." :rolleyes:

I still wouldn't have a cell but for work. I do like it and it saves on the landline bill due to the minutes-intense plan my brother has us on. It's not a camera-phone, I do not text and I do not use ringtones (which are for girls). :P

"So Long and Thanks for All the Fish" - primary/general calls

"Brown-eyed Girl" - for the wife

"This New Booty" - for the Sis-in-Law (in jest)

For text messages: Special Ed from Crank Yankers - "I got mail, YAY! I got mail, YAAAAYYY!"

One friend: sound effect of UFO flying from the old TV show "UFO"

Another friend: theme from "the Avengers"

Regular ringer: theme from "UFO"

This way I always know it's my phone ringing and if it's one of the tow friends I speak to the most. Esp. useful in the car (I wear a headset). The cell is useful for the no long distance and "In" minutes.
