You do have a point there.

I have been embarrassed twice recently with my phone going "Oink" or "Hotdog !" in business meetings :oops:

The standard ones are so lame though and you need something that is distinctively your own when you receive messages in a crowded room.

One I have been looking for for sometime now is the sonar ringtone/SMS tone. I think it is a step away from the lame plain vanilla tones but not too funky to cause embarasment in meetings... Anyone come across this :??:

If you want "normal" tones just raid the files that Windows installs

Have a trawl of C:\Windows\Media

[edit]

I thought these two "boring"/"normal" ones came from there, but I can't find them in there now

Bleep_14.wav

I can't download wav files at work so I can't hear any of those ;)

I use this one though - a robotic lady's voice saying "Receiving incoming transmission" no idea where it came from.

Thanks for posting this. I love it. But the volume was too low. So I opened it in GoldWave, doubled the Volume output on it and now it sounds awesome!

When I download this and the other one you posted the file is 0 bytes and there is no sound.

Anyone else had any joy?

Thanks
