Cool Find

I got a new phone today, mainly so that I could give my old one (but still working, thank you) to Gamma, whose phone was smashed in an unfortunate fall on a frozen lake last Winter.  It still makes and receives calls, but there’s no screen, and therefore no missed calls notice, no texting, etc.

Alpha needed a new one too, so we just spent half the afternoon in the cell phone store.  But, we lucked out and got a college kid working with us, and he was gracious enough to share a wonderful secret:  ringtones from Myxer.  The kind you can have sent to your phone in a media message and save to your phone, absolutely free.

Sure, I knew how to download ringtones on my phone for a small fee — except that you had to also have network service enabled ($10/month per phone) or pay the network charge at about $1.50 per minute.  Because I have teenagers, and a limited budget for cell phones, I have the network service disabled.  They can still send and receive texts — unlimited texting, even — but they can’t send pictures, browse the ringtones or games shop, and stuff like that.

Today is the first time I’ve found a way to expand the ringtones offering without the risk of forking over a lot of the green stuff.  So, in light of the good mood, I thought I’d share the love.

I’ve still got the Rolling Stones as my primary ringtone, but can flip over to Clapton or Heart with a couple of thumbstrokes.  Love it.

    Is this the Rumor phone? Are you still liking it?

    The box says it’s an LG UX260, but that’s from US Cellular. It appears to be the same phone as the Rumor, which is marketed by Sprint.

    Yes, I still like it a lot. Seems to be fairly durable with great battery life, too.

    Thanks. One more question – How well does the speakerphone function work?

    That’s not something I use often, but it seems to work reasonably well. There’s less distortion than there was with my previous phone.
