Silent ringtones are considered to be the ultimate call screening tool. If you assign a silent ringtone to a particular phone number, that caller will be sent directly to voice mail and your cell phone will not ring.

Another type of "silent" ringtone is marketed to students who don't want parents or teachers to hear their cell phone ringing at inappropriate times. This silent ringtone works on a high frequency just outside the average older adult's range of hearing, due to minor hearing loss over time.
