I switched my geeky Galaga ring tone back to a standard ring (Nokia’s “bee”) the other day, when I finally came to accept I just couldn’t hear the Galaga tone outdoors. Also it appears my model of phone can’t handle starting quietly and getting louder with an MP3 tone.
Apart from my own utterly superb choices in tones, there’s all sorts of stupid ring tones out there. Occasionally on late-night TV, you’ll see ads for some really moronic ring tones. This one was for a wacky accented voice saying something like “hahahaha, I kill you!”
Who buys this crap? Who would actually want that as a ring tone, unless they want to flag to everyone around them that they’re a complete moron?
And more importantly, do the people that buy this crap know what they’re getting themselves into?
Read the small print. You’re not just burning good money getting a crap ring tone, you’re actually signing yourself up to their ringtone “club”, which costs you $9 every week, plus another $3 for each other moronic sound/ringtone you grab.
How is this not a complete ripoff?
Why on earth would anybody agree to this?
Then again, if you’re stupid enough to want this ring tone in the first place…
