Electric Worry by Clutch for my main ringtone, The Fame by Lady Gaga for my best friend, and Cornbread by Dave Matthews Band for my not-quite-ex.

Well, my ringtones are the same as they were when this thread was new, but I've changed my text tone. Now it's Mr. Meeseeks from Rick & Morty saying, "Look at meeee!" Hey, it could be worse.

Moderator Note

As much as I like the Cranberries, this zombie was actually raised by a Vietnamese spammer who has since been wished away to the cornfield.

just added a ringtone for the alarm for feeding the cat - the meow mix commercial jingle. Now she comes running when she hears it, and is sort of ignoring when the phone rings for calls =)

The opening to Question by the Moody Blues (minus the first three seconds.) That'll get your attention.

My generic ringtone is currently "The Imp's Song" from the game Doom, but for my wife I have an instrumental version of "Woman" by Wolfmother.

Lovely zombie!
Somehow mine got accidentally set to “Choo choo”, and since it always cracks up both me and my cube mates, I’ve left it there.
I wanted to make mr. singular’s tone the wicked witch tone when I’m pissed at him, but I never figured it out. Tips for iPhone?

The theme to The Magnificent Seven. I'm well past due for a change, but everybody knows it's my phone that is ringing because that's been my ringtone for over 15 years.

The one on my phone the I could find that sounds most like an old bell-type ringer on an old ( up to the early 90s? ) phone.

No mistaking it for the myriad of other "designer" ring tones out there.

One I might try to find is if there's one that has the dive siren of a WW2 Junkers Ju-87 'Stuka' dive bomber...replete with Doppler effect. Sounds wicked.

I am using one of the stock available ones on my new iphone. It sounds like weird theremin music from a 1950s sci-fi movie.
