Getting Wild with iPhone Ringtones

Now that we have a jailbreak for our iPhones again I have been pouring through the selections to see what I really want on my iPhone 4 and one of my biggest items is ringtones. Most everyone loves to customize their device and what better way to make it truly unique than to add your own selection of ringtones.

Cydia’s ringtone subsection is pretty extensive with many songs, sound effects and TV show themes to choose from and download right into your primary system ring tone list…

I am one of those people who likes to have different ringtones for important people in my address book like parents, siblings, that significant other so that when my iPhone is sitting across the room I know who is calling by the tone and if my standard one is ringing then to me it is a less important call.

For my default one I like to mix it up a bit and I generally change this one about once or twice a month depending on how quickly the song or sound gets annoying. This month I wanted something a bit more attention getting so I set it to John Cena’s theme music from the WWE. When that tone goes off it can scare the crap out of people which I enjoy but I am a sadist anyways ;).

I have my brother set to play AC/DC’s “Back in Black” since he is a die hard fan and has all their albums and my sister I set to the “Hawaii 5-0” theme since it can be annoying and so can she at times.

I work in IT and have to be on call every other week so in order to make sure a doctor can reach me when he is having trouble with his systems I set that ring tone to The Police’s “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic” which is an extremely loud one that I made from the full song mp3 and it does a good job to waking me up at 2 in the morning.

Do you use custom ringtones for people that are important to you, and if so, which ones?
