Having Fun with your Cell Phone Ringtones by Craig Thornburrow

One of the great things about technology today is that we are no longer locked in to one simple ring on our cell phones. In fact, there are all sorts of ringtones that you can download and enjoy. Here are some examples.
If you happen to enjoy one particular genre of music, there are a bunch of cell phone ringtones out there you can enjoy. For instance, if you happen to be a fan of the rock sound sounds of the Sixties, you can find several places online that will allow you to download snippets from all sorts of legendary material - and all by the original artist. How would you like to have your phone ring to the sound of your favorite guitar solo? These days, you can do exactly that.
In addition to music that you remember and love, cell phone ringtones are also available with a wide selection of chimes. The chimes may sound like a doorbell, or even like a cowbell. One of the more popular ringtones from this type of tone sounds amazingly like wind chimes.
Audio snippets as a ringtone are also popular. If there is a punchline from a favored comedy monologue that you really like, check around. That very piece of dialogue is most likely available to use as a cell phone ringtone. Whether the comedy routine is recent or several decades old, there are plenty to choose from.
Of course, you have the standard and usual cell phone ringtones. Those are the ones that your cell phone came equipped. If you are more interested in utility rather than jazzing up the sound of your phone, chances are one of these will do the trick nicely. Typically, a cell phone will come with eight to ten different ringtones, with the range going from sounding a lot like an old fashioned rotary tone all the way through to a bomb dropping. These do have a touch of whimsy, and you may very well find one that is perfect for you.
Finding ringtones that are fun and speak to your sense of humor can often be found on a number of sites that specialize in various ringtones for a cell phone. Often, these will come with a nominal price and will be something that can be charged to you through your current cell service provider. Many of the sites will allow you to listen to a ring that interests you by logging into an Internet site before you commence with a download. This is a great idea, as most of us want to have some idea what we are buying.
Downloads are usually done by dialing a short number on your cell phone and then connecting with a remote server that allows you to capture the ringtone of your choice. The process usually does not take very long, and once the ringtone is saved into your phone, you can alter your settings to use the new tone with no problem.
Cell phones have changed the way we communicate. Is it any wonder that in addition to the increased communication and ability to manage our time that we would also want to make our ringtones distinctive among our friends and family? For more information, check your local cell service provider or do a quick search online. You are sure to find several ringtones that are right for you.
