    Hi all,

    I'm not one of these people who likes to have musical ringtones for my Treo. I like my cell to sound like a real phone damnit!

    I've had extreme difficulty finding ringtones of 'real' phones, and was wondering if anyone knew of any sites that had decent real telephone ringtones that could be used (or converted) for the 700p?

    I have found a *few* which I'd be happy to post on here when I'm back on my laptop, but in the meantime does anyone have any pointers?

    Aren't there any other 'real ringtone' lovers out there???

    Thanks!

    I find using a recording app such as mVoice to record real phones, then using minitunes to convert them to ringtones, is the best way to go about it.

    I've enclosed one called Old_Phone, and, I don't know what built-in rings come with the 700p, but on the off-chance that the selection is different from the 650's, I've enclosed "Ringer Loud", "Ringer Quick" and "Ringer Short Long" - which, to me, sound like "real telephone" ringtones.

    You could google search for mp3s of telephones ringing sound effects and load them into the phone.
    IT'S NOT A DAMN BLACKBERRY!....

    I've enclosed a zip file where you might find one or two ringtones that you can use. Not all of them are "real ringtones," but they still might be worth a look (or a listen). Some of them are also pretty good as "e-mail/sms/IM" notification sounds. It would be great if you could post some of the more "phone" sounding ringtones that you've found, when you get the chance.

    This is the most realistic sounding tone I have heard, but I can't get it to work on my 700P. I emailed it to myself and it automatically recognized it and installed it along with the other ring tones, but when I assign it to a contact it doesn't ring. Am I doing something wrong. I really like this tone.

    Like yours, my treo didn't like that file's format... I reformatted it to a .WAV file and it now works great on my phone.... Here it is... And by the way.. it sounds great..

    Thanks jdshirley. I was beginning to think that it was just me. You're right...it sounds great.

    ... OK here are the ones I've found so far. One of these I picked up in this very thread. THANKYOU!

    Let's see if we can make this the authoritative thread ANYWHERE for decent quality 'telephone' ringtones.....

    Guys, this is a great thread, but i have one big question--how exactly does your 700p integrate wavs into ringtones? My phone needs them to be aac or mp4 renamed as aac. I email the tone, download it via versamail, and cick on the ringer attached.
    Am I not taking advantage of another way?

    Thanks for the info and great tones,

    What I tend to do for ringtones is this:

    - put them into a folder onto my SD card via Missing Sync
    - use LightwavPro to convert the tones to AMR
    - copy the AMR tones back to main RAM and so then the tones can be "seen"/used in the regular Sounds/Alerts prefs of Messaging/Phone etc

    RMT.

    I just sync them to my card and use minitones (free software) to convert them. Minitones does all the work, then you can use the files just like any other ringer.

    And thanks to those who posted the ringers. I'm a "real" ringer kind of guy, too.

    Great to see other "old phone" fans here!

    This is the only ring tone type I use. For all the people who like their personal musical, etc. ring tone - most people get annoyed when they hear anything other than theirs.

    When my "phone" rings, I barely get a second glance. People, at least those over 30 , just never seem to mind the sound of a plain old telephone ring. It's a ubiquitous sound that doesn't seem to annoy anyone.

    I also like the real ringers because they are loud, and with seemingly everyone else using music ringers, I always know when it's my phone that's ringing.

    You make an excellent point. I too only use "real" ringtones.
