That I'm cheap. All the preprogrammed ringtones are crappy but it's not important enough to me to pay for anything I actually like, so I set it to vibrate and call it good. If I were going to pay for a tone, it would probably be the sound of the old-fashioned phone.

Waaaaaay not important enough to set different ringtones for different people. Much of the time, I don't answer the thing, anyway. I listen to the VM and call back when I can.

I knew a guy that used the song "Ball and Chain" to indicate his wife was calling.

Vibrate, what does that tell you?

Nothing at all. Sometimes a ringtone is just a ringtone.

I think that what your friends set their phones ringtone assigned to you to be far more telling, hehehe. Do you rate the "don't miss it hot latin" sounds or the ethereal music that says 'incoming blather from mental bimbo'?

Ringtone? It tells me I have voices in my head, they counsel me, they talk to me, they understand.
