I am one of those people who loves to customize their ringtones and themes. I don’t use the default ringtones and themes; my BlackBerry smartphone must look and sound differently from the other BlackBerry Smartphones out there.
Whenever I am receiving an incoming call, I know that it is my phone without a doubt.
I even assigned specific tones for each of my email accounts and incoming messages; I can easily differentiate my Facebook tone from my Twitter tone, etcetera.
A friend of mine recently asked, “How come your phone talks and mines doesn’t?”
I replied, “That’s because, I have customized my phone.”
Now, I swear to God that I do not do this for the attention. It’s just that there a lot of people who leave their BlackBerry Smartphones on the default tones and when they receive an incoming message (A BlackBerry Messenger alert for example), those nearby with BlackBerry smartphones think that it is their phone receiving a message; they pull their phones out only to realize that it wasn’t their phone which had made the sound that they are so accustomed hearing.
The eager ones would usually ask, “Where did you get that?” And then I would recommend a website where they can find it and download it.
I believe that since it is your phone, you have ever right to customize it in any manner that pleases you!
The funny thing is: my BlackBerry doesn’t sound like a BlackBerry; people only know it’s a BlackBerry when I take it out to answer it and if I really wanted it to be a mystery, I could use a bluetooth headset (Which adds to the suspense).
