    This is mine. Had it for years now.
    People usually seem to like it when it goes off in a store or wherever.

    I created a ringtone for my wife's phone. Used chorus of Dolly Parton' & Kenny Rogers signing 'Islands in the Stream'. Every time it rings in public, all the ladies just swoon. Maybe I should put this on my phone.

    The other end is you're like me and still run the factory ringtone. A bit annoying when you check your phone and its the guy's next to you.

    If it's in my contacts "call from sis work cell". If unknown. "Call from 404 8675309". Had that for decade.

    Ring tone is Smells Like Green Spirit. It used to be Rock the Casbah.

    Text tone is Caffinated Rattlesnake.

    Usually my phone is connected to a smart watch and it vibrates. The phone makes no sound.

    While I pretty much leave my (plain 'ol flip phone) on what Verizon entitles, "old fashion telephone" or somesuch - where I get creative is the outgoing sound that is played to different callers. :devildance:

    Other than the ringtones which came with the phones I’ve had, the only downloaded ringtone I’ve ever used was Derek Flint’s(Our Man Flint)presidential hotline ringtone. I probably used it for several months before returning to the retro telephone ringtone I grew up with. It catches my attention best over noise. I still like Flint’s ringtone, but I’ll just leave it for the movie.

    My personal phone is the theme from Live PD... I get 3 calls a week, the rest is text.

    My work phone is on vibrate because I get 700 calls a week and have been training people to text me by not answering calls. I know...sounds mean, what if it’s an emergency? It’s never an emergency, and when I don’t answer they just text and the crisis is averted. Text is better (for us) because it almost always involves me sending a screen shot of some data or pics back...I can get the text on my ipad or my phone and answer from either device, which means I can read their request on my phone and simultaneously be sending what they need via my ipad.

    I want to say on my personal phone (Samsung) I had to download a phone sounding ring tone... the included were everything but a telephone ringing.
