Where can I download T-Mobile ringtones?
T-Mobile customers can download ringtones from hundreds of independent websites, but many simply choose T-Mobile�s own ringtone website. This can be accessed through a personal computer and through the special �web2go� link on T-Mobile phones. Regardless of their data plans, T-Mobile phone users can browse the T-Mobile ringtone site and the rest of the company�s web2go store for free.
Some popular websites offering free T-Mobile ringtones include Mobiles24, Myxer, RingtoneJukebox, Ringophone, and Thumbplay. Browse carefully: some of these sites also sell ringtones through subscriptions and pay-per-download agreements.
What types of ringtones are available to T-Mobile users?
Many T-Mobile phones can handle all major types of ringtones � monophonic ringtones (simple tunes), polyphonic ringtones (high-quality synthesized music), and MP3 ringtones (actual music recordings). T-Mobile calls its polyphonic ringtones MegaTones� and its recordings of original artists are HiFi Ringers�.
In addition to downloading new ringtone files, most T-Mobile customers can download answer tones. These are songs that callers hear while waiting for the phone to be answered. T-Mobile has branded its answer tones as CallerTunes�.
Which ringtones will work on my phone?
To help avoid confusion, visitors to T-Mobile.com and other sites can refine a ringtone search to only show ringtones that are compatible with their specific phone model and plan.
Note that the SideKick can download ringtones from T-Mobile, but it may be unable to download ringtones from certain other websites.
