On hold? No, it's a ringback tone
By christophersaul on Sep 27, 2006
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.
