    I understand it's a 'distinctive' sound, but as far as sounds go, it has to be the most annoying one that an iPhone makes with regular use.

    Who thought the awful panic-attack-style beeping was a good idea?
    Anyone else agree this is completely dumb?

    Nope...I don't think it's dumb.

    I think the panic-attack-style beeping is a great idea.

    But then...I invented it...:cool:

    Yup, terribly annoying. As is the fact that Siri's ding tone cannot be disabled.

    I find it very annoying. I don't use FaceTime enough though for it to be that big if an issue

    Haha.. Never thought of it as that. I'll have to call it the awful panic-attack-style beeping from now on!

    marimba is the most annoying iPhone sound i think. People seriously need to change their ringtones.

    It's the same sound that Apple has been using since iChat circa 2003. Video chat sound with the mic feedback. I loved iChat. You could send huge files to your friends via iChat. No need for those Peer to peer sites. :cool:

    The only time I don't like it is when you try and FaceTime someone from across the house and then don't pick up cuz they can here that your calling.

    Agree with that but Apple make it harder to add new ringtones compared to other devices. No fan of iTunes here!

    I do wish they would allow us to pick another tone for Facetime. I use it all the time and the existing tone sucks.
