Whats in a ringtone?

Do tones reflect character?

Do tones reflect character?

The ring on your mobile phone could speak volumes about the type of person you are, according to a new survey. Research has been carried out into the different mobile rings and what each one represents. Women should be wary of any man that has rude or animal sounds emanating from his phone - especially the popular Crazy Frog - as it shows the man to be little more than a boy.

Those fashionistas who have the latest charts hit as their personalised tone may believe they are always in vogue but such constant changing indicates an unreliable character.

People who opt for the old fashioned ring tone think they are ever so high-brow but may end up coming across as pretentious. Ageing rockers are not left out of the study, unimpressed with the latest tunes, they will opt for polyphonic versions of My Generation and More Than a Feeling. If a mobile user has recordings of them or their partner or child, the survey suggests they be more than a little self-obsessed.

On the other hand, the standard tones could mean a lack of daring or even an aversion to technology. (shit thats me then my phone just rings and then a women shrills out "hellooooo" - its one of the standard Samsung E700 tones)

The research, carried out by Tesco Mobile, showed that 21% of those questioned thought having a standard ringtone was "uncool". Of the 1,000 people surveyed, 25% said the first thing they did on acquiring a new phone was to personalise the ring tone. But for 66%, they had got so annoyed with someone else's choice of mobile tone that they had either switched off the phone or asked the owner to do so.

Damn right - It got so bad in the office that th MD changed everyones work mobile to sing out the Nokia choon .. Now nobody hasd a clue whos phones ringing - Great idea that boss ! hehhe
