    It's a ringtone. It doesn't have to come booming out of a subwoofer for ****s sake.
    It's got nothing to to with being "badass" or having thumping bass. This one is just plain toy-ish. It also reminds me a little of .

    A ringtone is supposed to alert you that you have a call. It's not supposed to annoy you into stabbing your finger at the answer button in a desperate attempt to shut the maddening thing up. The latter is what I envision this rigntone doing to me.

    I don't like it. I find it effeminate and highly offensive. tinkerbells.

    Why does it remind me of "The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies" so much?

    Sounds like bad Xmas music.

    It's OK as far as musical ringtones go, but I prefer more professional, non-musical alerts.

    I like that it's musical but still sounds like a ringing phone. A hybrid, if you will.

    It's OK, nothing to write home about. I like having ringers for individuals, so I'll probably use this for people who are not in my contact list.

    I love it. But I guess I'm a little metro that way. It reminded me a little of the background music in the latest Battlestar Galactica series.

    I think it will sound cool coming from my Blackberry as heads turn and people wonder if I snagged a Pre... Not to worry, Verizon is already trash talkin' about having the Pre in 6 months. In Verizon speak that means "after certification testing" which is a euphemism for crippling 18 - 24 months of crippling.

    The 650 was a fine phone and was WAY more than a phone, but it's data rate was 1 bit per fortnight. The 755p was somewhat better until its instability chased me to ... wait for it... the BB 8830 From the BB 8830 I went to iPhone 4 and have never been happier. Farewell Palm.

    uh - "metro" and "Battlestar Galactica" have absolutely nothing to do with one another.
