ringtones that don't annoy, 2012 edition

I'm searching for a lowkey unobtrusive but interesting ringtone that won't draw looks of ire from those around me. I know this has been covered on ask.mefi before (in 2006), and, indeed, I ended up with one of those ringtones on a long ago now dead phone. But six years later, most of those links are dead, and we've moved from RAZRs to iPhones and Androids. So what's the latest and greatest in non-annoying ringy-dingys for our phones? [more inside]

Be Glad It Ain't The Spam Song

Here goes my lamest question ever...so, I have for some reason become determined to have the "Liberty Bell March" (aka the "Monty Python" theme song) as my phone's ringtone -- but, I'd like a clip of the ACTUAL recording, not some crappy MIDI file (which is all it seems I can find). anyone know where I can find that?

What do outgoing phone rings mean?

Usually, when you call somebody's cell phone and hear a beep after each ring, it means they are on the phone with somebody else. Are there any other ring indicators like that? [more inside]

iPhone Killers?

Are there any cellphone MP3 players that let you set an mp3 as a ringtone? I'm thinking of replacing my cellphone and mp3 player, but I refuse to buy a combo device that won't let me set an mp3 as a ringtone, because that's insane. I also want to be able to buy an unlocked handset and use it with whatever provider I want, rather then being a slave. (Can you tell I really don't like the cellphone industry?) [more inside]

1. In what way are cellphone ringer speakers limited, 2. Subtle ringtones?

Ringtonefilter: 2 questions. 1. Why does my fancy mp3 playing cellphone's speaker choke when playing mp3s I like (inaudible or distorted, depending). 2. Anyone have any relatively calm/subtle ringtone suggestions, that are not so subtle that one doesn't hear them? [more inside]
