Silent ringtone for iPhone
If you don’t have an iPhone, you ought to get one. That way, you’d be way cooler, and you’d be able to enjoy this post.
Every phone I’ve had before has a ringtone choice, “silent”, that you can assign to callers that you don’t want to answer. I don’t want to silence all rings, just silence particular callers that I know I don’t want to answer. Telemarketers, probation officers, that sort of thing. The iPhone lacks this feature. For some reason, Steve Jobs apparently wants to talk to any freak who calls him…but how about the rest of us? When will a clever pediatrician come up with a way to fix Apple’s mistakes?
Your long wait is over.
Click here to download a tiny ringtone file I made of absolute silence. Let it open with iTunes if your browser gives you that choice, or save it to the desktop then double-click the file. Sync your iPhone and it will upload to the device as a custom ringtone called “Silence.” Then you can go thru your contact list and assign this ringtone individually to anyone you don’t want to answer. Another idea: make a contact called “Spam” or “Freaks” or whatever, and when you get repeated calls from numbers you don’t need to hear from, assign the numbers to this contact. You won’t even know when these losers call you anymore. Sweet.
Now, you may think that this has nothing at all to do with children or health or pediatric care. You’d be right.
