Polyphonic ringtones -- the ones that sound like a cheesy 1970s synthesizer -- are so 1999. Today, if you want cool ringtones you want to download real ringtones. These are MP3 samples of real songs. But make sure that if you are paying for a real ringtone, that's what you get. Look for names like Mastertones, Realtones and Truetones. These are the real thing. Stay away from Sound Choice or any other MP3 ringtone that uses a sound-alike cover version of the song unless you want to be both disappointed and poor.
