Music is the only “language” that unites people from all over the world. It doesn’t have any discrimination, or bias and everyone enjoys different kinds of music. Almost all the mobile producing companies have realized this fact and to keep the joy of music alive, they started plying these cellular phones with your favorite music in the form of ringtone. For all of you who don’t know what a ringtone is, it is the sound produced by the cellular phone at the time of an incoming call (and now even messages).
Out of passe sounds in mobile phones are polyphonic and monophonic sounds. They imitate the song in their own form of ringing style (either polyphonic or monophonic). Today, mobile phones avail to us even real music as ringtones. These type of music ringtones actually play the real song (in .wav, .wmv, .mp3, .mp4 formats). Apart from this, a recent development has taken place, called “caller tunes”. A caller tune is the actual song heard by the caller (the person who calls) when calling the recipient. This tune is usually the favorite song of the receiver.
Polyphonic and monophonic ringtones, though demode, are available on websites, which requires you to register and provide your mobile number (which is safe and not disclosed to anyone) to receive the desired ringtone via text message, after your confirmation through SMS. Monophonic and polyphonic ringtones can be composed by an individual person on his/her own. On the other hand, real music ringtones can be uploaded from your PC hard drive, transferred from one phone to another via bluetooth or downloaded through surfing the internet in your phone.
