Here's a trick the salesperson at Verizon told my daughter about.
Take a pic with your phone. Now record whatever you want as a ring tone to go with it (a phone ringing, a song, your girlfriend, flatulence, whatever). OK, now send the pic and recording to yourself, save the recording, and set it as a ringtone.
My daughter's text notification is a former co-worker of hers drawling, "That's sexy by God."
