My new phone

So I finally upgraded my cell phone and even though I still only use a phone for just calls and some texts. With this one I was finally able to have custom ringtones without going through the Verizon service which I was hoping to be able to do way back with my RAZR.


Anywho long story short I made all my alerts and ringtones and background all Star Trek stuff. For now my main ringtone is that communicator opening sound. Computer beeps and alerts for texts and missed calls and my alarm is Red Alert. Only a few people who call me a lot have different ringtones just so I know who it is.


So I know this wasn't a very interesting topic I just wanted to share my geekyness.


Are you sure it isn't time for a colorful metaphor?

If I had a cell phone i would do either the communicator sound, or the Doctor Who sonic screwdriver or TARDIS taking off. Nerds for the win!!!!!!


The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.... or the one.

Awesome! I'm going to steal your phone! Just kidding! It sounds really cool, though!

I've noticed since I got it that people aren't calling me as much. How can I hear all my cool sounds if noone calls.

My dream phone is an Android... bet you can't guess why. 


Any-hoo, if I ever get one, it is going to be so geeked out with Trekiness it will be beautiful. Right now I have a cheap Samsung that came with our AT&T plan, and I only use it for "necessary" contact when out of the house. No texting, internet, etc. I will be going away to college soon, though- next fall, most likely- so my folks want to get me a really good phone. . . sooo... we shall see!

My previous cell phone was one of those Motorola flip phones. It also never had an aerial. I got it because it was like the comm device in TOS. The sms tone was the TOS themesong. And, the ringtone was a 'Space' one, which started with a countdown. I liked that cell phone. But then it suddenly gave up the ghost. I tried taking it for repairs. It couldn't be, being long off the market. I also lost all my ringtones. :-(

I just Trekked up my phone too, and it didn't cost me anything!

My phone doesn't make Trek sounds. Doesn't make sound at all... Maybe time to buy a new one.

My old phone was pretty much all Trek.  My background was:



 


I also have different sound effects for different events.


- Normal calls: TNG Computer saying "Incoming Transmission."
- Wife calls: TNG computer saying "Priority message from Starfleet coming in on secure channel."
- Text messages: Communicator Whistle
- Schedule Reminder: "CAPT Spock, CAPT Spock - Spaceshuttle leaving in 15 minutes"
- Mother calls: "Red Alert"
