Mobile phone ring tones are all the rage these days. According to an ARC study, the mobile phone ring tone business in 2003 was valued at $3.5 billion worldwide. That is 10% of the world music market and is many times bigger than the entire downloadable MP3 business in the PC world.

Use Ring Tones

A ring tone is the tone the phone sounds to alert you to incoming calls. You can associate a ring tone with a profile or with callers.

Set a ring tone for a profile.

On most Nokia devices, you can specify a different ring tone for each profile. On a Series 60 device, you can just open the Profiles application and select the Options Personalise menu. When you open the “Ringing tone” item, you are presented with a list of all audio files stored in the device (i.e., in the Gallery). You can choose any of these audio files as the default ring tone for this profile (see Figure 8-8).
