Do you reach for your mobile when it did not ring ?
« on: August 19, 2006, 08:11:06 AM »
How often have you reach for your mobile phone when it did not ring. You just thought it was your mobile ringing when it was your wife or son or just a stranger's mobile ringing.

Well, it happens to me. Many of us use Nokia phones and guess what, the default ring tones are the same in many cases. They do have a few others but some are just too jarring or too plain.

I was wondering if anyone knows a good, safe website where you can download catchy and nice FREE ring tones so that you only need to reach for your mobile when it actually rings, even in a crowded train.

You have to be very careful when searching for ringtones. "Free Ringtones" is the 8th most likely search term that will end up with malware on your system.

Make sure you are getting your stuff from a site with a good reputation for not spreading malware.

The only site I could spot on my own google search that looked like it would be safe was this one:

http://cellphones.ab...d/ringtonesmelodies/

They have a number of free original ones they created themselves and offer them on the website.

Be careful about links that will lead you off the website and read EVERYTHING.

I don't own a cell phone or I would volunteer to do some testing to make sure it was safe.

Use at your own risk.

I have a SonyEricsson K750i, which supports mp3 ring tones...
