Ironic that the only good ringtone in this "phone of the future" is the sound of a telephone from the early 1900's.

Ironic that the only good ringtone in the "phone of the future" is the sound of a telephone from the early 1900's.

The Short Version: Love the ‘Old Phone’ ringtone for your iPhone, but want to be able to tell your calls apart from everyone else’s? Download 3 free unique ‘Old Phone’ ringtones HERE.

If you’re one of the cool kids, you probably already have an iPhone. And if you do, you probably also have the ringer set to ‘Old Phone’ just like the majority of people sitting in my neighborhood coffee shop this morning (myself included).

While in this crowded coffee shop, every 10 minutes I’d hear that oh-so-familiar sound and reach into my pocket. Not only was it never my phone that was ringing, but each time I’d notice a 1/2 dozen other people mistakenly grab for their phones too.

So then I got to thinking… What if i could find a different ‘Old Phone’ ringtone that still kept me running with the cool kids, but was distinct enough that I’d be able to differentiate it from everyone else. Well, the short story is I couldn’t. Everything i came across on the internet sounded too similar to the stock ‘Old Phone’.

I resorted to doing it the hard way and was able to track down some great public domain antique telephone samples, edit/master them in Sony Vegas, and then turn them into iPhone ringtones by following this tutorial.

The end result was 3 distinctive ‘Old Phone’ style ringtones that you can easily tell apart from the stock ringtone because they have two quick rings instead of the normal long one. Check out the samples:

If you want to use any of these, you can download them as iPhone ringtones by clicking the link below. From there, all you do is expand the zip file, drag the ringtone files into iTunes and sync your iPhone. You may also have to go to the ‘ringtone’ tab in iTunes and tell it to sync your ringtones, if you haven’t already.
