Liven up the office environment

Ringtones are sure annoying, but think how much better the office environment would be without the constant tell-tale ringing, or running back to your cube only to find out it's the cubicle across that was ringing all along.

       yes, but imagine hearing the Ride Of The Valkyres as your boss is calling you!

       [contracts]: Mine too, and the phones we had in the previous building. You don't work in my office, do you?
This must be fairly widely known to exist, I would have thought.

       angel -- I'm discussing expanded MP3 level ringtones, not "ring,ring", instead of "rrrrring,rrrrrring"

       In that case, please chow down on this tasty 'bone. It's bad enough having silly ringtones on people's cell-phones; now you want them on office phones as well?
(Incidentally, it's "rrrrring,rrrrrring" instead of "tweet, whizz, whizz, tweet, tweet" in my office.)

       //"tweet, whizz, whizz, tweet, tweet"// I have that tone on the phone next to my bed, only because it doesn't rudely wake me when I'm asleep and make me want to kill the person on the other end of the line. But for an office? That's...strange.

       One of the cool things about working/hanging out with intellectuals is the lack of annoying ring tones on their phones. All my friends from work including me have different tones to identify their cell, but they all are a variant of "ring ring"   

       BONE!

       The new phone network where I work can have new ringtones uploaded to it but it got so annoying with every phone having a different ring that the facility was taken off and each team now has one for that team.
