I’m phone stoopid.
No, really I am.
Oh I can figure out all the fancy doo-dads on my iPhone, no problem.
Most of the doo-dads, anyway.
Where I utterly, completely and totally fail is in the ringtone department.
Here’s the scenario:
I choose a song, or sound effect, as my ringtone. Usually, this is accomplished after scrolling through the availables or even paying for a favorite song, and then setting it up to activate with every call.
So, someone calls me and my ringtone goes off.
And I look up, look around, and sometimes even ask others in the room “Do you hear that? What is it?” Or, “Where is that music coming from?”
And I do this, every single time. I never make that permanent connection.
I missed a helluvalot of calls that way, too.
The solution? I changed my ringtone to “Old Time Phone”, so it sounds like one of those old-style mechanical ringers in those big, heavy, black phones you see in movies of the 30’s and 40’s.
Which brings me to my other problem.
I watch a lot of old movies and now every time a phone rings in one of those movies I grab my iPhone.
I give up.
