Musical Note Dial-Up

  [vote for,

Mobile phone buttons emit a tone when pressed, but what i propose is the opposite. The user emits a tone in order to dial up. Let loose an awsome rock lick to dial your best friend Pete. Pluck a soothing classical piece for your darling girlfriend Janette. Sing for your supper to contact the local chinese take-away.

       On a touch tone phone, you can play the tone of the number you want to dial directly at the dial tone.
Not sure if this works with mobiles, but i had a wrist watch that could dial contacts using this very technology!

       When I used to work for Talking Pages (like Yellow Pages but on the phone) there was a guy who would often ring up and play tunes on his touch-tone phone. He never said a word, but he could play any tune you asked for. We called him Mr Beepy.
