If you really want to stand out from the crowd, it might be in your best interest to look for some unique cell phone rings. Anyone can look at the top ten list of songs on Billboard, but it takes a little more effort to get a set of unique cell phone ringtones. Be special.

Unique Cell Phone Rings

If you poke around on the Internet, you are bound to come across more than a few free cell phone ringtone resources. When you arrive at more mainstream sites such as MTV and Jamster, there's a good chance that you'll find a ringer that you like, but there's also a good chance that someone else in your immediate circle of friends will like the same ringtone.

The main issue with finding unique cell phone rings is that you will likely need to change it on a fairly regular basis. When your friends and family members hear you cool Starsplash ringtone, they might ask where you got it (and they might get it themselves). The same can be said about Christmas ringtones and other seasonal offerings.

It'll take some vigilance and originality, but you'll surely find some unusual and unique ringtones of your own. Here are a few possibilities for you to consider.

Retro and Unusual Songs

It's easy to see what hits are topping the charts this week, but if you're interested in getting unique cell phone rings, you're going to have to dig a little deeper. Two areas that you can consider are older songs and more obscure songs.

For example, if you were a big fan of the 1980s, there are an abundance of options for you to consider. Hot songs in 1985 are probably not the most popular cell phone ringtones today, so you can be sure to be rather unique among your friends and colleagues. From Take On Me (A Ha) to Never Gonna Give You Up (Rick Astley), there are lots of 1980s hits to consider. You can also try songs from the 1970s or 1990s.

Alternatively, more obscure and underground tracks are a great option. Even when you think about tracks from popular artists that have not yet been released as singles, you have a better chance of having a unique ringer. Have you considered Bruce Springsteen?

TV Shows and Movies

By and large, the most popular ringers are songs, but you can try to be a little different by taking different kinds of audio clips, particularly those from television shows and movies. If you search through the Internet -- be sure to have good antivirus and anti-malware programs in place -- you may find a variety of custom snippets, perhaps put to music. Look for popular shows such as Family Guy and The Simpsons for the most variety. Having your ringtone replaced by Stewie Griffin might be the funniest thing you've ever done.

Sound Effects Cell Phone Ringtones

Who said that cell phone ringtones had to make any sense? Interesting sound effects are excellent for the notification of received text messages and emails, because they're not as intrusive as a full-blown song or audio clip. For example, you may like using the sound of a cash register or slot machine if you always have money on your mind. Animal lovers may prefer the sound effects of dogs and cats, for example.

When you download certain free Nokia themes, they may also come with a free selection of sound effects ringtones. These will integrate the best with your chosen cell phone wallpapers and other custom elements. Do you have a Ferrari as your wallpaper? Maybe revving engines are the most appropriate and unique cell phone rings.

Custom Ringtones

If you want to be truly original, you can even take an already popular song and clip out your own custom ringtone using an audio editing program like Audacity. This way, no one will have the same sound as you and thus, you'll have a near infinite selection of unique cell phone rings.
