Just a normal ring, please.

I love my friends & family, I really do but there are a certain few of them that I HATE to call. Why? Because they feel the need to have these stupid ass answer tones. Why do people use these? You choose something YOU like, but YOU never hear it... only people calling you do. I have a friend, love her to death, who has Ron White's "Tater Salad" comedy routine as the tone... so every time I call her I get to hear Ron White tell me about how when he was arrested the cop asked him if he was Ron "Tater Salad" White.

I've been hearing it for months... maybe years, even decades, I don't know.

I now hate it.

I was channel surfing yesterday and came across that and I just about threw the remote at the tv. SHUT UP!!!! I DON'T CARE WHAT YOUR DRUNKEN ESCAPES DID TO YOU!!!!

I now will never be able to watch/listen that one again.... and it was my favorite of his.

It's like a broken record. Why do people do this? The worst ones are of songs that you don't even know.. or can't understand because the quality is so shitty. People, just let it be. I just want to hear a ring - nothing more. Save this stuff for your own ring-tone... so YOU can hear it over and over and over and over again, leave the answer tones to just a plain old ring-ring.

Whats funny is that these people FORGET what they even have as their answer tones because THEY NEVER HEAR IT!!

"Oh I just love that song!"


If you have some family & friends who have stopped calling you or don't call you as often... do you have an answer tone? They just might be sick of hearing it.

Take it off.

That's so weird. I don't know anybody who uses those. I didn't even know such a thing existed. Am I out of it or what?!

Hahaha that's funny. I had one ... it played 99 red balloons....after a while I thought it was dumb to have a ringback tone and got rid of the service. I dislike them all together, but did find them fascinating when they first introduced it.... but it's old news now and not really that fun anymore.

LOL I bet know who you're talking about Ber.

I used to have one but didn't want to pay extra for it anymore.

Sorry Kitty. Guilty as charged. I really like music, so I guess I like having music associated with me. I've actually had people say "Oh man, I didn't want you to pick up! I like that song!" But...I'm...guessing that wouldn't be something you'd say to me. :)
