People either change their ringtones on a daily basis, or they keep them forever.

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.

I miss Alberta. Yes...seriously.

I haven't had a song for a ringtone for a while. The last time I did, I was using AC/DC's Highway to Hell.

Also in rotation? The theme from Sanford and Son.

It's good to see that the WWE isn't backing away from Batista or Cena. There's still some questions lingering over a few of the draft moves they either made or didn't make (Jericho being a prime example), but the stage is set for a solid run to Summerslam that may send the indicator down. The longer Triple H stays away is also a plus...

Mike Jones - Back then. 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.

Pagers were always a really annoying invention. 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.)

Polyphonic take on Bjork's "Big Time Sensuality". 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.)

I'm probably the most annoying cell phone owner on the planet. I have a bunch of assigned tones.

-When the wife calls from home or her cell: "This Fire" br Franz Ferdinand (polyphonic)
-When the wife calls from work: "Willy Wonka" from the Burton version. (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. PICK up the PHONE...FOOL!"
-For all other unassigned calls: Super Mario Brothers theme (polyphonic)

Also on my phone but currently going unused:

-The Imperial March from Empire Strikes Back
-"Charmless Man" by Blur
-"Kernkraft 400" by Zombie Nation

Real Music/Sounds
-"Word Life" by John Cena
-"Chocolate" by Snow Patrol
-"Somebody Told Me" by The Killers
-The Star Wars Main Title Theme
-A Star Trek TOS communicator sound effect

"Kashmir", polyphnoic.

Mrs. JJD has "Redneck Woman", the actual song, which usually elicits a raised eyebrow or two when she gets a call around other people.

Right now I've got one of those weird outdated ones that sound like a ringing phone, but that's only until I take the initiative to hunt down "The Final Countdown".

I just stumbled upon "The Final Countdown" while looking for a decent version of "Across the Field". TFC has unseated what I've used for the last year and a half-"Big Poppa".

Until recently my (very old) phone couldn't play anything more than a few beeps, but now I've got my Motorola V3, I've been able to upload a few MP3's. Now the theme to The Amazing Race is my ringtone, while the tone the CTU phones on 24 use is my text message alert.

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.
