Your Ring Tone

Having a tracfone, I don't have much choice of ringtone, and just use the one that sounds like a wood block.

But yesterday at a restaurant I heard a great ringtone. It was a meowing kitten. So realistic that I looked around for a cat before I realized what was going on.

Yes, we have that option on our phone (well I say ours but DH has it 99% of the time). We play it for the cats and they start searching.

DH has it set for a regular telephone ring.

The 1% of the time I have it...I set it to vibrate.

Mine just sounds like a telephone ringing.

I had a much prettier musical ringtone for a while, but that didn't inspire me to answer it very quickly.

Mine is Sousa's "Liberty Bell March," perhaps better known as the intro music to Monty Python's Flying Circus. It probably rings once a month, if that, and usually a wrong number. It's a T-Mobile prepaid account on which I have over 1,000 minutes left, and which I feed $10 a year to keep alive.

Contrary to what most round here may suspect, my ring tone is not a meow or purr. It's the Ode de Joy from Beethoven's 9th.

My cell phone rings to the sound of the phone ringing on the TV series "24".

I'm pretty boring...just have a phone that rings like a regular phone ring. I do have an alarm which is a bit more peppy. My provider is Tracfone.

Mine is set to sound like a regular phone otherwise I don't realize it's actually an incoming call.

No ringtone. All sound effects turned off. Set on vibrate.
