My old phone was playing "Boys Don't Cry"... I miss my  old phone :( my new one has better sound, but no songs I like  :-\
Can't you transfer the song from the old phone to the new phone ???

Nope. Those cellphones are of different makes and from different operating companies, and they have different sound qualities. I think you can upload your own music as a ring, but I couldn't find that option on the company's website :-\

Don't all cellphones vibrate nowadays when you tell them too? 8)

My old phone didn't vibrate... you had to get a vibrating battery for that :-\

Just like Microsoft did when they tried to phaze out the 9x code for a less secure in my opinion NT (not there) code.   ;D

My phone's a Motorola V.66 and has both vibrate and ring.  It doesn't have polyphonic ringtones :'( and is pretty basic.  I tried creating some ringtones, but it doesn't allow notes shorter than a quarter, so it sooo sucks.  ;)

Anyway, it's set to play "Rondo ala Turca" XD

My interest in waning in this thread and my future replies to this thread will be limited.  Have a nice day!

Dang, Microsoft is really good at screwing things up.
M$ is very good at screwing things up, haven't you noticed that yet?
Anyway, AFAIK a normal cell phone doesn't have a M$ OS, so it must be an advanced one.
Mine's just a Nokia 3310. Good enough for what it's worth.

:suffer: storm  <3 it

well my phone is a siemens and i cant remember which one but its little and sliver.

its useful for many reasons-
1)wen mum wants to be reassured that i hav my phone with me when i got out
2) when i need a lift back from somewhere...muuuuuum, can u pick me uuuup
3) when i am bored and text people random messages
4) i love it wen i get messages coz i feel special lol

but...ring tones can be annoying especially wen u are sittin on a train or somewhere and all of a sudden a group of young people play *lets annoy everyone by playing our ringtones on the highest volume with the most annoying songs we can find*

I <3 Connor but he is beyond my reach!

Fortunately the few times I use the train are not times when groups of young people are using the (same) train. XD

Sometimes useful, always annoying.
