A new technology from Emotive allows you to push a specific ringtone to another phone. Known to Skype users as "Ringjacker", the service overrides whatever existing ringtones may be set on the phone being called. The pushed ringers can be animations, audio, avatars, flash files or video. If the person on the receiving end of the call likes the pushed ringtone or animation, they will be presented with the option to purchase the tone. The technology is compatible with 3G, 4G and VoIP services. While no U.S. carrier has signed up for the service, it is being funded by U.S. music companies Bertelsmann Digital Media Investments and Warner Music Group.
