    Since most cellphones are carried on the person and can be answered in about 3 seconds . . . who lets theirs ring long enough for it to be a "guilty pleasure"?

    Seems to me it's more like, "I can name that tune in four notes."

    I'm really too old to have ringtones, but ...

    1) I just died in your arms tonight, Cutting Crew -- my wife

    2) Call me, Blondie -- default

    3) Dukes of Hazzard theme -- roommate from college

    4) Crazy Train, Ozzy -- brother

    5) Uncle Fu@#ker, SouthPark (instrumental) -- Office (While there's no words, people seem to get the picture)

    6) Turning Japanese, The Vapors -- my best friend, who's asian

    7) Do you really want to hurt me, Culture Club -- My boss' cell phone

    8) Sex in the City theme -- my sister

    9) She drives me crazy, FYC -- my mom

    10) Dixieland Delight, Alabama -- my dad

    Yes I was really bored one day.

    HA! My wife has the same thing.

    Her mom's theme is priceless: The theme from "Jaws." Her mom wasn't thrilled. Her ex-husband thought it was brilliant.

    Toxic? [/secretly love that song]

    I have the college fight song. I'm also retarded when it comes to my phone so I have no clue to give certain people certain rings, so everyone gets a little Stand Up and Cheer.

    It's remaining nameless. And you are such an Ohio homer. :D

    Not Toxic, which is really cool, but Boys

    So, um, my phone sucks. Can't download ringtones from Sprint, isn't even listed as a phone model option on that website IJAG mentioned. And I got the damn thing in May! I'm stuck with the crappy melodies.

    Download Bitpim.
    Buy USB cable
    "Buy" a music-editing software program like Cool Edit Pro
    Create a ringtone with an MP3 of your choice on your computer with Cool Edit
    Upload it via USB to your Ringtone folder on your phone (OK, it's not that easy but there are plenty of tutorials on the internet)

    Currently I have:
    Root Down by the Beastie Boys
    Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins
    Hit It by ATCQ
    Quality Control by J5
    Various Family Guy quotes/sayings
    Many, many lame 1980's songs.
