    I use two: my workphone comes in with Work to Do from the Average White Band:



    For all other phone calls I alternate between Runaway from Jamiroquai



    and So So Real from Willy DeVille:

    I use the default ones on the phone. When I could add my own ringtones, I used snips from Fantasia. I don't like paying for snips of music (I actually don't like paying for .mp3's either).

    The best one I've heard around here was the Darth Vader one. Dun Dun Dun Dun-Da-Dun Dun-Da-Dun.

    My own, it's a recording of me playing my wife's favorite song instrumentally (The Way that I am, by Ingrid Michaelson)

    She's the only one who gets a ringtone. Everybody else gets a subtle vibration.

    I did have it set to fart when my phone rang, but my girlfriend walked away from me too many times in stores when I'd get a call and my phone started farting loudly, over and over... I have a hearing defecit(like many of us) so my phones ringer is turned up to maximum volume, and the phone being in my pocket...

    Now, I just have a regular old Ma Bell vintage phone ringing sound. It actually works better, as it's louder and brighter than the muffled fart sound.

    Better to have a new ringtone, than the other option.

    I have mine setup so that if Todd Rundgren ever calls me, I will get "Hello, It's Me". But until then, my wife's caller id is also assigned to that ringtone.

    Used to use the intro riff from Rainbow's Since You Been Gone. Not a big fan of the song, but I liked it as a ringtone - cheesy, but cool!

    I used 'Start Me Up' on a phone I had many years ago and got severely fed up hearing that intro as I got so many calls during that period!

    In recent years, I've used 'Shake Your Moneymaker' by Fleetwood Mac as it's one of my personal favourite songs and I never get fed up hearing it. And because not many people in my regular circle of acquaintances/colleagues know the song it stands out from the rest of the ring tones that other use.

    My default is a clip from Howling Wolf "Moanin at Midnight"

    "Well, somebody calling me, calling on my telephone
    Well, somebody calling me, over my telephone
    Well, keep on calling, tell them I'm not at home"
