    So, I feel that I should get a new ringtone to accompany my new iPhone 4, but I'm not sure what I'd like. I can always use a song from my iTunes library... but I'd also like to consider something else, as it may be more fun to have.

    I was thinking of something Family Guy... but I don't know what kind of ringtone I would use from the show. A lot of people use Super Mario ringtones, and I would love that, but I don't wanna be like so many others. Is there anything similar to those you can suggest? I may consider using Zelda music as well... as I've been into both the Mario and Zelda series. Also, Pokemon... but idk if I'd like to sport that haha. Not in public at least :p.

    Finally, are there any other famous jingles or songs anybody can think of? Maybe from any cartoons? I'm 20, so maybe something from my childhood that all of my friends when they hear my phone ring will be like "Cool!"... like songs from episodes from spongebob or something :p

    As I posted in the last ringtone topic, I am using this. It is really loud and I remember the song from playing Top Gear when I was really young. If you want SNES or NES music, there are lots more songs in the same channel.

    I went through a phase where I would use 1950s PSA-style music. 'Holiday for Strings' is a good one.

    Actually I just thought of the song "City escape" from sonic adventure 2 battle for gamecube. Idk if anybody is familiar with that, but yeah lol.

    Anywho, I googled it and found a free clip of the song, so I downloaded it but it's mp3 format... I changed the file to .m4r but it still won't add to iTunes as a ringtone?

    Convert it in iTunes to .m4a, then change the extension to .m4r and it should show up.

    I've been using the opening riff of Superstition by Stevie Wonder for awhile now. I'm starting to get bored with it though.

    I have a special ringtone reserved for my mother though, "The Bitch is Back" by Elton John. It makes all my friends laugh when I answer the phone and say "Hi Mom" after the ringtone goes off. Then again, my friends have nicknamed my mom "Dragon Lady." So YMV with that tone.

    In the past I've used the instrumental solo from Nina Simone's "Sinnerman" as my general tone.

    Try this. I used it on my iPhone for a while... it actually wasn't loud enough though, even with the volume cranked. :(
