i can't believe it! my mother went as far as meddling with my cellphone "affairs"! this is the first time that she said a thing about my cellphone. i thought she just wanted to manage my life. now she wants to manage my cellphone too. ^__^;; but i'm not really angry about it. in fact i laughed about it when she asked me to change my message alert this morning. but i was really surprised. i never thought my mother would care about it. she said it was really SCARY! LOL well it was supposed to be scary! LOL it sounds like background music for halloween after all. ^__^;; i got it from an anime, Jigoku Shoujo Futakamori. it was the background music playing when a boy under a tree was feeling depressed and he was singing a very sad song. i just thought that the music was so creepy. and it would be fun to make it as my message alert. so i saved the video and recorded that part. ^__^;; if you want to hear it, you can download it here. http://secretbear.multiply.com/music/item/13/Jigoku_Shoujo_3_songs its really short so you won't have any problem downloading it and listening to it. i uploaded it to imeem too but it takes ages to play a song there. so i chose multiply. you have to hear it! ^__^

its not that eerie right kun?? i actually think its kinda funny. when i was riding a bus last night, someone sent me a message and there goes spooky! i think some people was looking for the source of it. i didn't bring out my cellphone until the alert was finished. ^__^;; my friend and i was laughing about it. isn't it quite a hassle to change your profile every now and then?

i don't think they were scared. i think they were weirded out. ^__^;; they probably thought that the owner of the cellphone was really weird to choose a ringtone like that. ^__^

LOL the ever slamdunk fan! ^__^ i change my mother's ringtone into something that i think she would like. like when she liked the song "way back into love", i put it in her cellphone and made it as her ringtone. but she doesn't really like any particular singer or songs so its hard to guess what songs she would like. but if we put something like a recorded laugh of my niece or my 3-year old nephew singing, she would definitely love it. so we're safe there. ^__^;;

of course your mother's gonna be scarry, dude, while your background musch was like halloween! LOL sometimes my mother asked to change my cellphone message alert or ringtone if she didn't like it, coz it was a bad music for sure. LOL

maybe she even thought it was a bad idea to have a Halloween-like ringtone when its not even Halloween! nothers, they don't know the beauty of being unique!

Sure... But sometimes my mother yelled at me, know why? :P coz I usually turn the level of ringtone to be the lowest, so she can't hear if there is any message or phone to me...

that's weird! why would she yell at you for having a very low volume ringtone? wouldn't that be just beneficial to her since it won't disturb her?
@swirlz (3136)

No she hasn't. But she had often told me to lower the volume, or turn it silent. hehe. There are times when I'm very busy, i just forget my cellphones, and there are already messages accumulating, some very important too. That's why i turn the volume up, to make sure I won't miss any messages. But most of the time, it's pretty low. She normally doesn't have any problem with it. Just a few times. Especially if there's an exchange of messages going. That drives her crazy. But no, I've never spooked her with anything. That's my sister's job. hehe.

That's good. I have a problem with my mom's cellphone volume being too low. There are days when I text her to ask something important and it would take ages for her to respond. My siblings have a problem with this too. Because sometimes, they would text me or call me, asking if I'm home, and if they could talk to our mother, or even just ask me tell her that she has messages. lol.

people and mobile - people and mobile and there ringtones
no she never told me to change the ringtone or message tone, but thing is that I do not see any problem keeping something different in cell, as nowadays there are so many of it,sometimes with common ringtones and message tones it becomes tough to recognize your own cell is ringing,so better to use something others do not so that you can understand,another thing,you should not disturb others with it, so try to use something else when at home so that your mother does not feel problem

hi abhiroop! thanks for the response. i also think that its better to have a different ringtone to distinguish it from other people's ringtones. that's why i sometimes make my own ringtones.

No, my mother has always loved my choices in that. She often tells me that I keep her up-to-date with music that is new. But! My last boyfriend did this. Notice I said "last"? I left him...yep. Creep. Anyway, I don't know; sounds like she is putting her "nose-in-your-business" too much. I'd be upset at that.

don't tell me you left him because he wanted you to change your ringtone?? just kidding. ^__~ i'm sure there's more to that. my mother doesn't meddle with my business more than she should. she usually couldn't care less with my ringtones. its just that one ringtone that made her upset. and i just couldn't help but laugh about it.

Hi secretbear, [i]LOL! Poor mom! LOL! Anyway, maybe you have to lower the tone when you 're at home or closer to her so you will not scare her..LOL! My Mother didn't do that to me since I have no message alert as that..maybe if I was using same thing,people in the house will say something about it! LOL![/i]

oh my, funny thing is, she just asked me to change my message alert tone earlier tonight since it irritates her. but mine's not as scary as yours. it's just a phone ring. according to her, it reminds her of her office which is one thing she doesn't wanna think about since it's the weekend LOL

what kind of ringtone that can remind someone of their work?? she must be always stressed at work so she didn't want to be reminded of it during weekends. so did you change it??

This is funny to me. I haven't lived with my mom since I was 20... so almost 14 years =) I don't think that she would care what I used for ringtones or alerts on my phone, and it's not like she (or anybody) has a right to anyway. Thanks for the chuckle!

Hello secretbear, My mother doesn't care about my ringing/message tone. She is okay with it as she doesn't really know about cell phone. But, I never have a funny or weird tone for my cell phone and so it is not a big problem too. I am just normal and not really up to date cell phone fanatic

That hasn't happened to me, but I have a basic ring tone. My sister however downloaded Otep for a ringtone, and my mother just stared at her badly when she heard it. She never asked her to change it but sometimes I wish she would because it's really loud. Sometimes we're in a store and it's a little quiet and all of this sudden this screaming and metal music comes on. People always turn to look, it's not that bad. It's just the music is a little disruptive.

i don't know otep but heavy metal music would really be too noisy for a ringtone! anywhere you go people will surely look at you when your phone rings. i don't blame your mother.

I don't have a multiply account so I couldn't listen to the ringtone...but that is a neat site! i might have to check it out...back to the cell phone thing though, my mom never has asked me but she has asked my brothers who lived with her - they had explicit rap music though that she couldn't stand!

hi vera! i would have seconded your mother to change your brothers' rigntone. i can't stand too much noisy rap. but if it were in a low volume and only they can hear it, i would be fine with it.

Dear Seacretbear,My mother has not asked to stop by inquired were I got that ring tone from may she had liked it. Moreover I just went through the link site it is really a nice one thanks for letting us know. My mum used to have spiritual ringtones most I used to download it her mobile but she never insisting me in changing my ringtones but my sister used to.
