    I was thinking of using "˜Scotty doesn't know' instead of the standard "˜ring' that I've been using on my phone. Would it be too trite? What ring tones do you have on your phone?

    Jon.

    P.S. I will not purchase the ring tone; I will upload it via Motorola Phone Tools.

    I don't know what "Scotty doesn't know" is, but here's my current ringtone:

    It never fails to crack up me and anyone nearby when it goes off. I also have the main title theme to Dune, a couple of songs by Air, a couple from Fight Club, and a few by Kraftwerk that I cut myself.

    Depending on the setting of the ringer, could be:
    Curtis Mayfield, "Move On Up"
    Otis Redding, "Respect"
    Hendrix, "Red House" (a bit of editing to grab the section where he mutters "that's alright, I've still got my guitar" before the solo, which always makes me smile)
    The O'Jays, "Love Train"
    Pink Floyd, "Wish You Were Here"
    Grateful Dead, "Turn on Your Lovelight"
    Aerosmith, "Walk This Way"

    Mine sounds like a phone ringing. A loud and obnoxious phone.

    Tunes are gauche. I like the standard ring on my phone. It is more of a pulsing tone than a shrill ring.

    I keep mine on vibrate - I don't like 99% of the ring tones out there.

    If I do use one, it's just a standard 'ring'.

    Phone ring. I don't particularly like musical ring tones.

    Tangled Up In Blue, the Dylan song? Or something else that's a play on the title?

    La Marseillaise; or Sony Ericsson's 'Old Phone': makes me feel like I'm in a Cadbury's Flake advert.

    One phone ago, I had that Sony Ericsson "Old Phone". I loved it. Very bell-like and old-fashioned sounding.

    I knew we'd agree on something sooner or later.

    At any rate, I use the standard ring on the RAZR v3c (though presumably all the RAZRs have the same standard ring) when it is not on vibrate, and it's almost always on vibrate. I have a violent hatred of ringing phones...

    My standard ring is the sound of the office phone from "24."

    I've returned phones before (cough, SAMSUNG, cough cough) after finding out that I accidentally purchased a cell phone with every single ringtone designed for a 13 year-old girl Japanese anime character. Not a SINGLE normal ring to be found...and they expect you to PAY to DOWNLOAD a normal one?

    That said, I have a few speciality ringtones depending on who's calling, such as the "In Like Flynt" ring or various guitar riffs from Thrice or Failure.

    I should mention, however, that the tone played when I receive a new text or voicemail is "Mail, muthafucka" from EuroTrip. That will never change. Ever.

    that's what i used until i got my razr. I hate all those annoying song ringtones.

    I use the 24 office phone now, but i modified it and inserted a brief pause followed by the sexy voice of a british woman saying "Incoming call."

    I also got her to say "You have a new voice message" and "Good morning gqgeek! This is your wake-up call." I put her on my voicemail too ^_^

    Yes, I'm a dork.
