Chapter 5. Personalizing Your Cell Phone: Ring Tones and Images

Many of today’s newer cell phones can be personalized by downloading ring tones and images to the handset. Ring tones are typically several bars of popular or classical music that play when someone calls your phone. Images can likewise be downloaded and set to display when a particular person within your phone list calls you or when you initiate a call yourself.

To get set up, you’ll need a ring-tone-capable mobile phone and access to text messaging, the Internet, or a phone in order to select and purchase your ring tones. Most major wireless carriers, such as AT&T Wireless, Cingular Wireless, Sprint PCS, and Verizon, offer downloadable ring tones from their Web sites, as do some specialized providers such as YourMobile. Phone manufacturers such as Sony Ericsson and Nokia offer ring tone downloads from their sites as well.
