A “ringtone” is a sound notification used to alert a person to incoming calls or messages on their phone, despite no longer truly being rings or tones. Most ringtones today are music – small melodies or song clips. Ringtones were first customizeable in 1975; people used to edit the music chips in ringer devices to put in their own music! The first mobile phone with customizeable ringtones didn’t come out until 1996, more than twenty years later. Now ringtones are a multi-billion dollar business – but you can download ringtones for free from our ringtone channel at YourListen.com.
