I wonder how impossible it is to recognize ones ringtone and how likely it is to have the same tune with others. If you make a ringtone that’s different from others then you would know if it’s your phone ringing in the public or not. But if you’re using your phone’s signature melody as a ringtone it’s possible that you’re not alone having it. It’s ridiculous when somebody’s mobile phone rings and you’ll see many people around grope in their bags or pockets to see if it’s their mobile phone ringing.
I’ve never had a ringtone that’s similar to others and if it happens I would definitely change it right away. There are a number of sound clips or music that’s included in the phone but most of the time I upload my own mp3 so that I’d know the songs myself. MP3 ringtones take much space in the phone though. It can be a piece of work editing it, like I did with the song, Popcorn, which I wanted to set for hubby’s call. But I was not satisfied with the outcome so I didn’t use it. I will make another try, this time on Mobile 17 to get the right part of the song I want as a ringtone. Making and minding your own ringtone is a way of giving your mobile phone its distinguished identity.
