You are your ringtone
you have Beethoven’s Fur Elise as your ringtone or a more hip
techno one, it speaks volumes to your personality, if a new research is
to be believed.
According to The
Age, a new research carried out by Tesco Mobile on 1000 people
suggests that men with rude or animal sounds, especially the popular
Crazy Frog, indicate that they are little more than boys.
Those with the latest
charts hit as their personalised tone are supposed to be unreliable,
while people who opt for the old fashioned ring tone come across as
Ageing rockers are
believed to opt for polyphonic versions of My Generation and More
Than a Feeling. If a mobile user has recordings of themselves, their
partner or child, they be more than a little self-obsessed.
While standard tones
could mean a lack of daring or even an aversion to technology. Twentyone
per cent of those questioned thought having a standard ring tone was
"uncool". And, 25 per cent said the first thing they did on
acquiring a new phone was to personalise the ring tone. Sixtysix per
cent had got so annoyed with someone else’s choice of mobile tone that
they had either switched off the phone or asked the owner to do so.
