The ringtones that WILL NOT DIE!!

` I can't write intelligently right now because I'm surrounded by people and almost out of time, but I just thought I'd say this:
` Every time my phone rings, it reminds me of people I don't want to be reminded of, and my cat, who is now dead. So, I tried a free trial of cell phone internet so that I could get ringtones that don't bum me out!
` Unfortunately, I can't find any ringtones I am willing to listen to even once more that are, at the same time, on a website that has a working download page!
` It's so frustrating - I have spent too many hours trying to find a working site and it is such a waste of time! I refuse to do it any more because I have better things to do than be disappointed!!
` So yes, I can't download anything I like the sound of - either that, or I can download as many songs as I want, but I have no idea what they are. And I'd really rather not do that because then I'd have to download about 100 just to get one I didn't want to delete. Y'know?
` Of course, being a musician I have also tried to send my own homemade ringtones to my phone via e-mail, but my phone downloads the message (which is blank anyway) and not any MIDI files.
` Darn Sprint!! Darn it to heck!!!
` And to add insult to injury, my phone is still receiving text message spam from all those websites I tried to get ringtones from!

` Does anyone know anything I can do!?!?

Go to each one's website for commands. However, STOP QUIT CANCEL UNSUBSCRIBE and one more, forgot, are usually ok commands.

Also I forgot to leave something in my lj and ur about to go. I might hate myself later but anyway...

I don't know much, but I do know that supposedly Brian Eno has composed some ring tones that are supposed to be pretty inobtrusive and pleasant.

I must've misread. Upload an midi, remember where it is, then use the phone's web. It should be in an options menu under the built-in fake-web you see at first. Goto Address is in there somewhere, or goto url:
it might be in the menu in the built-in webmenu.

for the longest time, i just had the basic ringtone on my phone. i liked it just fine. it reminded me of just a phone.

but then i found 'Rock Your Body' by Justin Timberlake. I've never been the same since.

` Upload a MIDI, hmm? I suppose I'll have to find a place to upload to.

` Cassie, that song sounds vaguely familiar. Doesn't the music video have this really hot werewolf guy or something like that? I remember being forced to watch it several times from late at night until five in the morning by an MTV-obsessed friend.
