In celebration of my new CELLPHONE (woot! woot! holla!) I'm asking the best and most important question in the world: What's your cellphone ringtone? Mine: Theme from the Muppet Show EDIT: If anyone can get me the "HOLLA!" line from Mad TV as a ringtone (and can tell me how to zap it into my phone) I'll be eternally greatful.

For most incoming calls I have a couple others for specific people. makes it so much easier when i don't even have to look at my phone to ignore you. I use the ESPN crawl ding for my Alerts.

Here, let me annoy you so you have to go find a phone and get back to me! At least with a cell phone you can answer or they can leave voicemail. I really like my cell. I don't even have a land line anymore.

I was so right there with you until last month... Sadly, I can't even blame it on work. My ringtone is the least annoying one that came with the phone. It remains to be seen whether I ever care enough to change it (my guess? nope.)

It'd be nice if I could figure out how to get it to use MIDI's (the phone's a Nokia 3650) so I don't have to buy 'em. Same deal with the wallpapers, too. (Oh, and when searching for, say, "Nokia 3650 wallpaper format", Google only turns up sites to download ringtones y wallpapers, so it's not much help.)

(polyphonic) She works at Warner Bros. -When any other family calls: "The Best Around" by Joe Esposito (polyphonic) -When friends call: The Original Star Trek theme (polyphonic) -When my most Trekkie friend calls: A voice tone of William Shatner saying, "This is William Shatner and I'm begging you, pick up the phone.

Now the theme to The Amazing Race is my ringtone, while the tone the CTU phones on 24 use is my text message alert. (edited by Canard on 28.8.05 0007)

I probably wouldn't carry one either if I didn't work in the industry. For general calls, Sony Ericsson's "Old Phone", which is the best sounding "just like a real bell ringer" tone I know of. For when my wife calls, the theme from "Six Feet Under". For incoming text messages, the short tag music that used to tail all Jack in the Box commercials plays.
