Bob's Ringtone

#1 Post by pohleonguk » Mon Aug 15, 2005 10:17 pm

Hi guys,
I just wondered if any of you knew what Bob's ringtone in the film was and if so perhaps where I could get it?? I remember a year or two back this was covered here or perhaps on IMDb but I cant find the posts anymore. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks guys :)

Thanks for that post :) Now to find the ringtone that sounds like the one in the film :P Ive heard a few but they are not exactly the same lol. I think I remember it was a default tone from a phone that was only available in Japan....hmm... well if anyone has a good place to get the ringtone that would be great :)

Hmm well I aint found anything to suggest that it was a preloaded ringtone by Motorola so seems like a dead end that one. Ive found a few Midis and Mp3's of fantaise impromptu but the one Bob has sounds very distinct, almost like with a modern sorta twist to it.

I use FI as my main ringtone on a Motorola V551. The poly tone isn't the same sound as that in the film, but I'm happy just to have the same piece of music. It gets your attention, that's for sure. It's such a manic piece, it's very difficult to ignore.

have you not got a polyphonic tone composer on your mobile?

you could just find the sheet music and create the tone on your mobile
