I recently, was forced to upgrade my Motorola Razor, (Telstra are shutting down the G2 Network). So I have bought a new "Flip phone", (I'm too stupid to work a smart phone).

The Ring tones were not that good, so I found a site called Zedge, on Google, and this site is incredible, for all the different Ringtones you can download. It took quite awhile to nut out how to get a new ringtone, (and some help from a work mate), but I have now got the theme from "633 Squadron". Amongst other war films I found, 5 different "Battle of Britain", (including "Stop that Polish chit chat, and steer 2-3-0, Repeat Please), Theme from "Zulu", and "The Battle of the Bulge", (Panzer Lieb).

So I was wondering what other members have for Ringtones on their phones?

There's a feller at work who is not particularly popular with... well, anyone really! He rather aptly has the Muppet show theme tune as a ringtone. He has no idea why there are particularly BIG smiles, grins and knowing winks among staff when it goes off in the canteen! :Whistling:

I've no idea what my ringtone sounds like. No one ever calls me. Mind you. I've not given anyone my number. I've not given anyone my number, because the phone is built into my car.

I had the Jame Bond theme, but it was very hard to hear. The opening guitar riff is too low in pitch. Sounded cool when it worked, though.

My current ringtone is Insomnia by Faithless (I've also used that as an alarm sound in the past)

Some of my favourites I have used in the past are
'Who are you?' by the Who.
The sweeny theme.
The police academy theme when the missus was training to be a copper.
The bill theme once she passed out.
I've also used Goldie looking chain 'your missus is a nutter' for her.

Text tones I've used include the the family fortunes wrong answer sound and the transformers transforming sound.

Whatever you do don't assign "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" to another female friend. :nod: :naughty: :wink: :heatwave: :think:
