Your mobile/cell phone ring

My general ringtone is Debbie Harry singing, "Call me!" I love it. It makes me happy. :)

Birds chirp when I get a text. It used to say "message has been received" in a female voice, but it frightened a coworker every time I got a text, so I changed it for her sake. I have a ringtone assigned to family members, and a ringtone assigned to people I don't want to talk to. (No, I don't delete them from my phone. If someone calls that I don't want to talk to, I want to know before I answer. lol)

My Ring tone is Gwen Stefanis "Hey Baby"

Voicemail notification is Bugs Bunny saying
"Whats this? A Letter.... For Me?"

My text tone is a rooster crowing.

I tend to get bored easily and switch them around often.

I have a few ringback tones also...
Micheal Jacksons "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough"
Theme from "Curb Your Enthusiasm"
Talking Heads "And She Was"

My ringtone is...a ringing phone. It's the only normal sounding one that was in the phone. Don't like all the different sounds.

Granted, I almost never actually have the ringer turned on/up--it's pretty much always on vibrate...which explains why I miss most calls. :)
Depending on who's calling it's either Peter Gabriel's "Shock the Monkey", Iron Maiden's "Run to the Hills", or Tito Puente's "Oye Como Va". It used to be Ozzy Osbournes "Crazy Train" intro, but I about had a heart attack every time I got a phone call

I've got "In the Mood" on my cell phone but am looking to change it since I've had it for awhile and am getting tired of it.
How's 'bout something with a distinctive beginning, like "Opus One" or "Don't Be That Way"?

Though I keep leaning towards Lionel Hampton's "Flying Home". The xylophone intro would catch your ear without startling anyone near you. Though it does raise an issue: if you choose a song that's too good, then you'd miss calls because you didn't want to interrupt the music by answering.

Personally, geek that I am, when we were issued Nextels I chose the ringtone that sounded like a communicator beeping. Unfortunately the Motorolas we have now don't have it, so I chose something that's close. And I have it vibrate before ringing, which the Motorola unfortunately usually forgets after you've had to take it down to vibrate-only for some classes.

A definite candidate would the Andrews Sisters' "Hold Tight (Want Some Seafood, Mama)". But that would also be a definite "don't want to interrupt the song".

The vitrola-starting-up effect of "Kalamazoo" could be interesting to use. Though I've always been partial to "American Patrol", even long before I had started dancing.

This was on the morning news about a month ago, but there's a new mental illness that afflicts a large portion of the population. We think that our cell phone is ringing or vibrating when it's not.

Anyone here suffer from this? I have to admit that I do.

I seem to suffer from many mental afflicitions, but yeah, that's one of them. ;)

Least, was at home, haven't raelly had an issues with that here, but I thinkt aht's partly because I rarely get calls here.
