I’m not sure if it’s a sign that I’m maturing or just lazy, but since I switched from a Droid to an iPhone last month, I have not set any specific ringtones.
With my Droid phone, I had a ringtone for everyone who frequently called me. Misti was Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” because she mentioned that her sweet baby loved Adele, and, frankly, so do I. My husband’s was basically any song that I liked at that moment – Incubus’ “Dig,” Bruno Mars or even (gulp) Nicki Minaj (I shake my head in disappointment in some of my music choices). My mom was, by her own choice, “Bad to the Bone.” My dad had my favorite ringtone, though – Johnny Cash’s “A Boy Named Sue.” He used to sing me that song as a kid and then said he wrote that song himself because I couldn’t believe that song was actually a hit.
Believe it or not, there were some times when my ringtones have made me turn red. When I’m at work, I would usually try to keep my phone on silent or at least with a quiet ringer, but sometimes I would forget. So, naturally, it was a bit embarrassing when the "King of the Hill" theme song or Cake’s “The Distance” lyrics blared out of my phone at quite inconvenient times. Such as with a student. Or with the dean of my college. Sigh.
So that may be the reason why I have yet to add ringtones to this phone. It’s just simpler. And another reason may be because I have yet to learn all the fancy smancy apps on this new Apple product. Actually, that’s the real reason.
Plus, I’ve got to find the perfect ringtone for Kyle. I usually try to find a song we both like fairly well, as he’s the one who calls me the most. Due to my current fancies, my choices would go toward Florence + the Machine or Lana Del Rey. Neither are really his pick of the barrel. Maybe Civil Twilight…
Again…first I have to learn how to WORK the iPhone. Anyone want to help? ;)
