Mobile Phone Ringtones - Articles Surfing
Mobile phone ringtones are like hot cakes for the youngsters, the market is huge, estimated world wide sales of $ 2.5 Billion per year. The cost of a mobile phone ringtone ranges from '1.99 to over '10. Most singers and performers provide rights for their melodies to be converted to ringtones versions. Survey shows that about 26% of mobile phone owners downloaded at least once a ringtone. Many people downloading more than one as you can customise and set the phone to play different ringtones for a specific caller.
For instance if your mum is calling the mobile phone will play a certain ringtone and another one for dad and for your girl friend a different one so you don't have to guess who is calling you, it is totally personalized per caller.
There are four types of ringtones:
* Monophonic ringtones play a melody of a song one note at a time, with no harmonies.
* Polyphonic tones add harmonies to the song.
* Real-life or True Tone mobile phone ringtones include voices, quotes, or other strange, real sounds.
* Master tones are compressed clips of actual songs, as heard on the radio (not just their melodies or a simple harmonic version).

There many web sites that offer a huge selections of lyrics and songs, themes from movies, hip-hop, pop, dance, singers, classics and you name it. One of the best and up to date in my opinion is http://www.zaxx.polyphonic-ringtone-ringtones.com/
