    Just making a poll of what ringtones you iPhone users are using. I'm using Pinball, what about you?

    EDIT: Just so nobody asks, I made this poll four days after the iPhone came out and at the time, I didn't know that custom ringtones would be here in the near future. I wish I knew at the time, because now I have custom ringtones too.

    I have Alert set up on my alarm... and whenever it goes off, I feel like it's WWIII and I need to hide in my bunker.

    Phones should ring. While the iPhone sounds are better than most phones I've heard, I still want my phone to ring.

    Old Phone for me all the way.

    i am half-glad that the iphone doesnt have custom ringtones for now. Dont you just hate it when youre in a meeting/on the train/at dinner and someone's phone plays a ridiculous ringtone? they always get embarrased -- so why do they pick that one?

    the built in ring tones are tasteful and unannoying, which i like.

    but i admit i will be the first to add a piano ringtone if/when the feature becomes available on the iphone.

    I've always like the idea of having new technology have a bit of 'old skool' in it, so I chose old phone without hesitation. Plus, most folks, including myself, have found it the easiest to hear in most conditions.

    But, yes - would still like an option to what are given - and that should come sometime or another...

    Old phone - there is just something ironic about the supposed ultimate cellphone sounding like a 70's wired phone. I'm into irony... :rolleyes:

    I was flip flopping between the "Harp" and "Blues" ringtones.

    I went with Blues as my system ringtone, with Harp being assigned to some of my more special contacts. :)

    This poll should give them an idea of poorly received most of their tones... are.

    They are a pretty sad selection.

    Should be some more that sound like phones, without having to resort to an old phone sound.

    I disagree. A poll of what ringtones people use doesn't tell you anything about how unpopular the ringtones are in general, because the question was not gathering that information.

    The poll only tells you the distribution of what people chose for their ringtones. If the majority lean toward one ringtone, it doesn't automatically mean they hate the selection. In fact, such a poll provides you no data in that regard unless the question being asked is "How would you rate the overall selection?" and if the average answer is below 3 on a scale of 1 to 5 where 5 is best, THEN you have data to arrive at the conclusion that people dislike the selection.

    Furthermore, because Marimba happens to be the default tone, the poll as it is currently phrased cannot tell you whether the reason the majority chose Marimba is because they liked it best, or because they disliked one or several or all of the other ringtones, or because they simply haven't yet bothered to explore options outside the default ringtone (though statistically speaking this last one is probably the most likely reason as the majority of cell phone users do not customize their ringtones to begin with).

    Granted, I personally agree that the ringtone selection seems narrow (but then I'm a technogeek who also mastered the touchscreen keyboard in less than a day and I wouldn't assume my views are shared by the majority) and it will obviously broaden in the near future as file management becomes available, but you cannot say that this informal poll, with the question phrased as it is, provides data to support the idea that the selection that does exist is poorly received.... and if I may pick one last nit:

    There is a difference between not having a large enough selection and disliking the selection that exists. There's a different survey question to arrive at either of these conclusions...e.g. you cannot ask "Is the selection large enough?" and conclude that the ringtones that exist are generally disliked.
