iPhone 3G: Forget MMS and Copy / Paste, What About the Ringtones?

So the iPhone was first released about 15 months ago. We’re now on the second generation of the handset and we can pretty much all agree that the iPhone 3G is still lacking in many of the areas where the original fell short. Yes, thankfully the iPhone 3G received some much needed love from third-party developers, UMTS, GPS and Exchange support but areas that are seemingly minor details are still lacking. Where is the MMS support? Where is the copy / paste? Forget all that. Perhaps the most easily remedied of all minor flaws in the iPhone and iPhone 3G is the ringtone selection. Since the iPhone began supporting Exchange, there has been a lot of talk with regards to the iPhone as a “business device”. Sorry fellas, but it’s going to be hard for people to take someone seriously when bongo drums or submarine alarms begin erupting from a suit pocket. Sure you can dig around through your iTunes library and pay a conversion fee but are Sir Mixalot and Justin Timberlake really any better? Thankfully your buddies at BGR have done all the hard work for you. You can spend a couple of hours digging through the iTunes Store – or you can check out a handful of professional-quality “normal” ringtones put together especially for the iPhone by RCP Tones. Some are experimental and unique, some are traditional and professional and some are mellow and calming. All of them however, are leaps and bounds better than blues riffs and air horns. Our advice? Check out their tones and take your calls in public with some dignity. You can always switch it up and jam to Baby Got Back on the weekends. Hit the read link to check out the entire catalog along with a handful of free ringtones only for BGR readers.
