Adding a new ringtone to your cell phone is an affordable luxury that many people allow themselves. After all, why settle for what Nokia, Samsung, Siemens, Motorola, LG or SonyEricsson build into the phone? Why, you'd sound just like everyone else! We can't have that, can we?
There are a multitude of ringtones available for any taste of music or sound. The original ringtones could only play one note at a time. These are called monophonic ringtones. Newer technology allows for several notes to be played together. This is called polyphonic. These tones sound more like real music. The newest tones are small clips of your favorite songs, environmental sounds, sound effects and more in MP3 format. Since they are not synthesized, like the monophonic and polyphonic tones, they are truly realistic.
Yes, there are ringtones that are not music, such as the Crazy Frog, animal calls, people ordering you to answer your phone and even ringtones of body sounds that we normally try not to release in public! Imagine that one going off in church. Dear Lord!
Need better screensavers or games than what was included with your phone? Get wallpaper, animated screensavers and games downloaded just like the ringtones.
New games and ringtones are very inexpensive. You can sign up for a monthly subscription plan that allows you to download several new tones, games etc. each month for a small fee. You can customize your phone as often as you want.
