On hold? No, it's a ringback tone

I don't understand why people pay for the latest mobile phone craze - 'ringback tones'.

Whenever I ring someone and get a bad quality clip from a song I don't like, my automatic reaction is to think that I've gone through to the wrong line and have been put on hold.

I think I'll get a badly played and particularly tinny version of 'Greensleeves' set up as my ringback tone to give people the feeling that they've actually got through to their dentist, circa 1992.

Comments:

My phone allowed me to install an mp3 in its multimedia folder, from where I found I could set it as a ringtone. Nice.

When I got my phone I found it didn't have a normal 'ring ring' type ringtone, so I had to record a standard desk phone and use that!

Hi, I kinda disagree... ringbacks provide a great way to say something about yourself. and if you get to hear a bad quality ringback - you can say a word about it to the person you just called.

You can't tell them their ringback is rubbish when it's a customer you're calling!
