    Decided on I Ring Pro's Zen and Origin packs. Zen sounds like a lot of the chimes in airports and on bullet trains here. Origin sounds homey. All of them sound crisp on the iPhone's speaker.

    I use the "iPhone Progressive Ringtone" and I love it. Starts out low and progressively gets louder. And it is a basic ring.

    You know I tried one of the ring tone packs that were linked from the forums and I think they were too loud and now my speakers are blown on my iPhone. Whenever I put it to the loudest volume. It sounds all distorted now. And it never did before. So be careful.

    BUsiness Ringtones

    A ringtone is often one of the most overlooked pieces of your professional presence. Our team has witnessed first hand people losing jobs when an innapropriate ring was played on the way to an interview. We have also been exposed to managers who walk away from an employee interaction , meeting, or lunch completely dismayed because the ringtone was completely embarrassing.

    What many people don't realize is that you are constantly being sized up for your next position by management. That manager or executive is going to be looking at how you dress, how you talk, how you act in front of customers, and how you interact with coworkers then asking themselves "could that person be in my shoes?" All to often everything is perfect until the ringtone goes off. You cannot let this cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars in future income.
    I found some great, high quality business ringtones here, exectones.com. Really was worth it!

    Not a bad idea for the site, but I think I'll pass on paying $18 for some ringtones.

    Why don't you use the "Old Phone" ring tone. It's simple and not annoying, and it come with the phone. At work I keep my phone on vibrate, I think it's so rude to have the phone ring in an office.

    I just bought the synth intro to "Baba O'Riley" by The Who. Even though most songs aren't "professional" ringtones, everyone loves this one--Who fan or not. Plus, it's only the synth intro so it sounds like a standard ringtone.

    In the process of looking for business ringtones I found this one: http://ambientrings.com

    Exactly what I was looking for, and since I also found this thread during my search I figured some others who find this forum will appreciate the link.

    CTU ringtone, you can pretend to be Jack Bauer. ;)

    Obviously I don't do this...and I personally would keep my phone on silent at work.

    Judging from my family, keeping your phone on silent/vibrate or the original iPhone ringtone is the way to go. Besidessssssss, custom ringtones were like so 10 years ago. :rolleyes:

    True, for musical ringtones... They're unprofessional and you have to remember which song is for which contact. That's why I use talking ringtones that greet you by name or title and announce the caller's name or title. For example, "Mister Smith, your phone is ringing. The president is calling.". Search for ringtones uncensored and try one of the free versions or go pro for just $.99 and get 40 voices, plus 200 FX to use as an introductory attention getter!
