Got a Samsung A717 today, first order of business is to figure out where I got the telephone ring sound for my last phone. I hate phone-sex-musics – sorry, I think other people call them “ringtones”.
Ringtones are like flares, nobody wants or needs them, but when you spent $300 on your new cell phone the first thing on the list of features was “MP3 ringtones”.
I think the evidence for ringtones generally being an artefact of fear and peer-pressure is borne out by the fact that 99.99999999% of ringtone sites appear to be marketing scams, botnet incubators and retirement-fund raisers for porn webmasters.
I just want the sounds my phone makes to be telephone sounds.
