Download Verizon Ringtones

Many web sites claim to offer free ringtones, and most of them are legitimate, but there are a couple of issues that seekers of free ringtones should keep in mind. First, some of these sites are either outright scams or at best disingenuous--They may have free ringtones, but they're only available if you buy something else or pay for a membership first. The second potential problem with free ringtones is that the purveyor may be using private material such as movie themes and popular songs without paying royalties to the rights holder.

Many sites may offer free ringtones without installing spyware or inundating visitors with ads, but they still may present a legal issue. Most popular music is protected by copyright law, and any use of the music, such as in free ringtones, requires that royalties be paid to the artist.

Alternatively, you could go to the webpage where you could download free ringtones to your cellular phone. Your cell phone has to be compatible for the download feature. On the ringtone page, you could select the make of your phone and the model number and series, and you could download free ringtone to cellular phone. Monophonic and Polyphonic ringtones are most sought after in ringtones.

Ringtones are the sound that a regular or cell phone makes when it’s rings. Early ring tones were simple chimes and on later models, a combination of chimes. Limited numbers of ringtones were available and mostly consisted of different patterns of tones or chirps. An example of one of the most infamous ringtones was the ominous” ring ring…ring ring” that is reminiscent of Todd Beamer’s last telephone call on 9/11. You can hear that ringtone featured as an intro to Neil Young’s famous song “Let’s Roll.”

So there you have it, what can you say about ringtones? It seems in today’s wireless world and with cutting edge technology, quite a.bit. Gone are the days where a single bell chime or as Lily Tomlin put it so well: “one ringy dingy, two ringy dingy” had to sound to get your attention. Today the choices are endless so shop around for what suits you best in your own unique ringtone. Stay in touch!

According to our readers, Verizon Wireless has the best national cell phone service. Based on extensive real-world testing, we can safely say it also has the best high-speed data network, available in no less than 54 major metropolitan areas nationwide.

If you like your Verizon service—or you're considering switching—here are some good choices for how to make the most of the network. We've also included our current Editors' Choice among laptop PC Cards offered by the carrier. The big CDMA carrier widened its product line of phones this year, and it now offers a set ranging from powerful, high-speed mobile office handhelds to sleek little voice phones. (Keep an eye out later this week for our review of Verizon's top-of-the-line LG VX9800 communicator.)

Samsung i730 The most powerful cellular handheld Verizon has to offer, this Windows Mobile Pocket PC connects to the Internet using both Wi-Fi and Verizon's wider-range EV-DO network. The slide-out thumb keyboard is comfortable to use and the device is fast, though we wish its battery life was better.

Monophonic, Polyphonic, and Truetone Ringtones For Verizon

How to get them? Let me show!

The best quality in ringtones is the truetone and the mp3 type. Ringtones represents your way of thinking. It represents your individuality and personality. Today different ringtones are used to represent different contacts. This means that a father , mother or family will trigger a particular ringtone while a friend may trigger a different ringtone.

Monophonic ringtones have the capability to play one tone. These use midi technology and is a combination of multiple notes played in sequence. With the arrival of other more advanced ringtone technologies, monophonic ringtones are now available for free at different web sites. The author’s bio section at the end of this article contains a lnk to one such site. What is this talk of monophonic, polyphonic and truetone ringtones? In earlier cell phones there was only the ubiquituous 'tring tring' ringtone. But with the advent of technology and widespead use of mobile phones the quality of rendering of the ringtones has also improved.

If your mobile handset does not support mp3 ringtones, then polyphonic ringtones are the best you can opt for. But in case your handset supports mp3, then that is the option you should go for. By the way, polyphonic ringtones are also available free of cost but there are some select ringtones that are also chargeable. Now a days these ringtones cost anywhere between 99c and $3. Some sites charge on a membership basis but you can download sample ringtones just for registering. Visit the link in the author’s bio section for one such site. Polyphonic ringtones are built on the same midi technology as monophonic ringtones but have the added capacity to play more than 40 notes in sequence. The quality of a polyphonic ringtone is much higher than a monophonic ringtone.

All of these can be downloaded into the cell and set as the ringtone. mp3 ringtones give real audio quality and are a real money spinner for audio companies as well as cell carriers. Whereas the audio companies were suffering huge losses due to piracy a few years back, today sales of ringtones account for a large share of profits. Some onsite ringtone companies also provide free ringtone to visitors for registering for free. These ringtones are sometimes 15 second clips of regular blockbuster soundtracks but may also be of other more ‘ringtonic’ types like the sound of a rocket launch or a baby crying!

Verizon phone records

The absolute worst part is Verizon and NSA hide behind "national security and secrecy" to prevent anyone from ever finding out exactly what they are doing. How much money is Verizon making by selling our private phone data to NSA? No one can check to see if any of this is legal or proper, or to make sure someone at NSA doesn't send a copy of all my liquor store calls to my minister. Note: Better call Mom on Mother's Day because NSA is watching.

If the government knows everyone I call, when, and for how long, it has a significant chilling effect on basic communication. Maybe I shouldn't call crazy Aunt Jacobie in Poland anymore because NSA will know and my security clearance might go bye-bye.

In the name of Ma Bell and the Continental Congress, time has come to stand up to NSA and Bush. Tabulating and tracking millions of average Americans' telephone records does nothing to make us more secure. In fact, it does the opposite, threatening our right to freedom of assembly. Folks get together by phone as much as in person these days.

I believe it is imperative to the survival of our freedom in this "democracy" (such as it is) that the average citizen has a right to expect that our government is not looking over our shoulder ever time we pick up the telephone. Isn't the government required to show some probable cause and get a warrant to get my phone records? Did we all agree to adopt "Moscow Rules"?

The claim of "national security" here is just plain bogus. If you think that NSA computer makes us safe from terrorists, I want to take you on a tour of the U.S.-Canadian border in northern Vermont and New York sometime. Please, don't call, just drop by and page George Kaplin.

Should I Re-Up With Verizon?

At work I may be Mr. Super Phone Man, but at home I am just a humble wireless consumer like everyone else. Recently, my 2-year Verizon contract came up, freeing me to either get new phones at discounted rates or switch to a different company.

I'm having the same struggle that all of you have when choosing what to do. Since so many people ask me for help, I thought I'd turn the tables and ask you guys. Some things I'm considering:

This isn't just for me. I'm on a family plan with my wife, for whom service reliability and voice quality here in NYC are paramount, though she also likes to send pix messages. Right now Verizon is basically giving away two Motorola E815s to people who will re-up a two-year contract. As the E815 might be my favorite Verizon phone ever, that's pretty compelling. But the E815 is last year's phone.

We don't want our monthly fees to go up, or our service quality to decline. Right now we're paying $87.99 plus taxes and fees ($116 total!) for a two-line, 800 minute family plan with a text/pix messaging add-on. Having that number go down might be nice. But not at the expense of service quality. I love the Motorola Q. But there's no way I can afford another $40/month. No way at all. For goodness' sake, I'm a phone geek. Yet I do not own a geeky phone. Would buying an E815 and hacking it be geeky enough? :-)

So, what do you think I should do? Switch to Cingular, T-Mobile, Sprint? Stick with Verizon - and why? Come on, fanboys!

Verizon responds to phone records complaint

PORTLAND, Maine --Verizon phone company on Friday told the Maine Public Utilities Commission that it should dismiss a complaint seeking to find out if it is giving the National Security Agency information on its telephone customers in Maine.

In a seven-page response to the PUC, Verizon said the commission lacks the authority over NSA records because the NSA program is "highly classified." Verizon also said it can neither confirm nor deny whether it has any relationship to an NSA program.

A group of 21 Mainers filed a complaint last week asking the PUC to order Verizon New England Inc. to answer whether it provided telephone records and information to the federal government without customers' knowledge or consent. The complaint further asked if Verizon had given the NSA access to its telephone switching equipment.

"Verizon is prohibited...from providing any information concerning its alleged cooperation with the NSA program," Donald Boeke, a Verizon attorney, wrote in the response. "Indeed, it is a felony under federal criminal law for any person to divulge classified information concerning the communication intelligence activities of the United States to any person that has not been authorized by the president, or his lawful designee, to receive such information."

PUC staff members will review the complaint and Verizon's response and make a recommendation to the commissioners on whether to open an investigation or dismiss the complaint, said PUC spokesman Phil Lindley. The process should take at least a couple of weeks.

Maine law requires the PUC to investigate complaints against a utility if a petition involves at least 10 of the utility's customers.

Two days after the complaint in Maine was filed, USA Today newspaper reported that the NSA had collected the phone records of millions of Americans using data provided by Verizon Communications Inc., AT&T Inc. and BellSouth Corp.

BellSouth later denied that it provided any records to the NSA. Verizon issued a statement saying it doesn't provide any government agency "unfettered access to our customer records or provide information to the government under circumstances that would allow a fishing expedition."

The lead plaintiff in the Maine complaint is James Cowie of Portland, a former adviser to the PUC staff and expert witness on its advocate staff. Cowie said he brought the complaint after Verizon refused to tell him if it had given his personal records to the federal government.

Cowie said he was "dumbstruck" by Verizon's argument that it couldn't release any information because it was "highly classified." That argument, he said, is usually reserved for government intelligence agencies -- not a private entity.

"It seems like something the government might file, but not a local telephone company," Cowie said.

Maine Civil Liberties Union Executive Director Shenna Bellows said it is the MCLU's position that the PUC has the statutory authority to get the information from Verizon.

"Mainers deserve to know if their calls are being monitored by the government," she said.

Bellows said the complaint in Maine is the first in the nation filed with a state regulatory agency seeking to learn whether phone companies are giving customer information to the NSA.
