Just a random question, So what do people have as there ring tones and why?
Other people can better answer how. As for Why, I'll take that one.
To tell who's calling without looking at the phone. Psychologists call it an audio cue.
It can also make you either love or hate a song after some time.
I had someone ask us for a "silent" ringtone!
At first, I didn't get it, but it makes sense. You can assign it to a number of people (your "ex", your boss, someone who always calls at the wrong time, or if you work in a sensitive environment, you don't have to remember to set the mute switch, which also mutes many apps, which may not be desirable).
So, we added it!
when i say why, i mean why did your chose to have that as your ring tone
Are you sure they weren't talking about this?
yep, I'm sure. Though we've been asked for that too, but I don't want to be responsible for damaging someone's speaker, which I've heard rumors of. In this person's case, she kept getting phone calls from some guy who misdialed her. So she wanted to set him to silent.
OP, correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like you're asking what do you have as your current ringtone, and why do you have that song/sound?
Like people have already said it's a audio cue like call display, not only that but you can find funny rintones that match your contacts
My iPhone tends to "lose" the ringtone assignments and turn them back to the default ring.
I got tired of re-setting all 30 of them every few weeks, so I don't use custom ringtones anymore.
Too bad, I really liked them.
Mine does that occasionally, for we figured out it was because it was syncing with MobileMe and because MobileMe has no ringtone information, it just assumes there's no ringtone info every time it syncs.
It got better with 2.2 but has recently started happening again occasionally.
I just use the old phone ringtone that comes with the iPhone. I work in an office environment and leave my ringer on but need something normal and work appropriate.
Some of my customers had similar issues, where they were sure they had the ringtones assigned to the contact, but when they called, the default ringer would play. We walked them through it. The problem was how AT&T (or their provider) would transmit caller ID info. For example, they might include a (1) before the area code, but that might not be in their contacts.
What worked was to delete the contact, have them call, and create a new contact using that info.
I use Oasis - Bag it Up
that's exactly what i mean
I actually still have the same original ringtone. I'm to lazy to change it, not to mention i'm used to mine.
