Cell Phone Ringtones
Ok - I come here for everything else I need help with, I might as well ask about this here, as well!

Where do you find ringtones for your cell phone? I've got a couple that I like, but I need one more. The site I usually go to through my cell service provider doesn't have anything else I want. I don't want to get caught up in those "free" offers which really mean you are subscribing...anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!!

I'm not too particular...I just chose one that came with my phone. I've only downloaded with my old phone and then I just downloaded the Michigan Fight Song from my carrier.

Sorry, not much help

I just use the one Verizon Wireless has. Of course, I have Rocky Top as my ringtone and I'll never change that so I haven't had much of a need to find another one once I got that one.

some people make their own from various songs that they like. I am not COMPLETELY certain how to do that but there is software that you can use for that. I have a friend who wrote a song for a program that he was writing. He sent it to me to listen to and when i was loading music on to my phone i dumped that into my ringtone folder. That is now his ringtone.

Otherwise I have always used Verizon's website for ringtones. I have never figured out how to transfer ringtones from one phone to another (i don't think it can be done since they are also different manufacturers.) so i am trying to avoid it until i can figure out if i can make my own ringtones or not. Tired of giving VZW more money darnit!

I'm not picky. I just have a few from the Verizon website and the ones that came with my phone.

We purchase our's from ringtonejukebox.com. Very reputable. I've never had a problem.

I would do a search, though, for software to make your own. I have the Sprint Fusic, and being the techie that I am, I discovered a great Fusic forum that led me to software to edit my own ringtones. Stuff is out there...the phone companies just don't want you to know because they want you to buy stuff from them.

I had Data Suite for my old phone. (Around $40) The problem with that is if you change phones, it's useless unless you get another phone listed for that suite then it's just a matter of downloading a different driver. I usually buy mine from our service provider, the kids and I take turns.

You can actually email an mp3 to your phone to use as a ringtone. I have Verizon- what I did is I emailed a picture from my phone to my email, then hit reply in my email, attached the mp3, and then sent the reply email back to my phone.
