Ring tones

I like a telephone to sound like a telephone, so both my mobile and land line have variations of normal 'ring-ring' tones.
What tones or music do you have on yours?

Different tones for different categories - family, friends, medical contacts. Oh, and one that sounds like a cat mewing for a couple of catty grin friends - but I forgot that was what I had allocated them, and spent some time looking for the poor moggy that must be trapped somewhere in the house.

The 'real telephone' tone is very popular at the moment and I keep thinking it's mine when it isn't. I used to have a musical one but missed a call when I was in a shop as I thought it was background music.
Earlier this week at a cricket match we heard a duck quack ringtone. Very appropriate for a cricket fan.

Different tones for family but my favourite for incoming texts, Crickets, reminds me of sunny days and cicadas.

Not done any of these yet. I could, but my grandsons are too young to show me how yet. wink

I dont have a clue. I would have to ring it to find out.
But that was the reason we chose it. It is a non-commital type tone. Most of the choices were high pitched, or sounds that would irritate us very quickly.
Only the one sound for everyone though. I wouldnt want loads.

House phone ringtone is Pachelbel's Canon in D, mobile is old fashioned telephone ringtone. I find a lot of the ringtones just blend into background noise so are no good in noisy environments.

Walk don't Run on my mobile.

Having gone to settings on my mobile I can tell you it's called Lucky 5. I had no idea grin just chose the least annoying one.
Land line is just the one it came with.

Makes me smile when watching Doctors as Rob the copper has Z cars theme tune as his ring tone.

I used to have 'Does that make me crazy?' singing out from one mobile that I owned.
The one I have at the moment is a gentle temple bell. Which seemed appropriate when the 'text message arriving - ting' occurred during a meditation class. shock

Delivers flower duet.

Bloody predictive text. Delibes.

Thank goodness we are coming to the end of that awful Nokia waltz "tune" .

Rolling Stones "I can't get no satisfaction"

I usually have Sweet Child of Mine for my children and Roses by Outcast (which is my favourite song with my name in it) for DH

Everyone else has whatever is a favourite tune at the time or A Fairytale of New York at Christmas.

I use a simple Ring tone maker app to use songs that I have downloaded.

Hendrix "There must be some way outta here" grin. Anything typical, I just don't hear. Only one ring tone for all calls ...

whenim64 Sun 31-May-15 09:20:14

'Start Me Up' by the Stones. I also like the normal old-fashioned ringing tone but kept missing calls because I couldn't distinguish mine from others.

Ariadne Sun 31-May-15 09:27:52

Skylark - I mean the bird - singing. DSiL got to my phone once and downloaded an owl hooting..

hildajenniJ Sun 31-May-15 09:44:58

I have a normal ring, ring on my landline, but my mobile plays the Rondo alla Turca by Mozart.
My cousin has my late mother's laugh as his ringtone!

EEJit Sun 31-May-15 16:31:24

The Muppets Mna Mna for the ringtone, and various others for family messages, including Priority One Message for messages from Beloved.

Captain Pugwash for me and Popeye for DH. The grandkids think they're hilarious and starting dancing as soon as they hear them grin
