My friend and colleague, Pam, said that another friend of ours (a cellist) suggested a reed crow as a ring tone. Hmmm. I think that might be one I’d actually hear. I tend to not really hear my cellphone. Sometimes a person standing near me will kindly alert me to the fact that my phone is going off. There’s something about all the rings I have on mine that either don’t capture my attention or drive me insane. (I’ll choose the former over the latter.) Does anyone know if there’s a way to make your own ring tone? I’m guessing there is …?


  1. My phone is an old one that has a function to compose your own monotone ringtones, but I guess that’s not what you’re looking for…
    If you have a phone that can play mp3’s and connect to your computer you might be able to record a reed crow on your computer and then put it on your phone and somehow set it as a ringtone.

  2. If you google “make your own ring tone” there are a number of sites.

  3. Yes, but that would require me doing something … I just want someone else do do it all for me! 😉

    Oh … but thanks! I guess I should google and … sigh … WORK ….

    (Does making your own ring tone qualify as work? I think so!)
