Forcing your "great" taste of music on other people ...

This reminds me of myspace. I find it social rude to put your favorite grunge metal polka tune on your profile -- and force everybody to listen to it. Nobody wants to hear it.

The same goes for ringtones. Chances are, I do not like your taste in music, and what song you want to associate to me or yourself. As much as you think you are, you are not "too sexy for your shirt i definitely do not need to hear it in public.

Forcing ringtones on your friends will go down in history with other antisocial mobile wonders such as spamming all your friends with a MMS of your cat throwing up, checking in at gas stations with Dodgeball, and AT&T's incredibly creepy "Friend Finder".

I hate that about myspace too, I do not approve any video comments and even deny most picture comments and don't have crazy themes or music or videos... i hate when one my friends tells me to go look at their profile and it crashes my browser because 10 youtube videos try to play at the same time.

so, in short, i am anti push-ringtone.

ps. you left out people "chirping" so we hear their whole conversation plus annoying beeps betewen speakers.

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.

And what if they don't like the pushed crap, will they have an option to ban the tone or animation and/or caller?

Ring jacking sounds onerous.

I don't like hearing half of the conversation from loudmouths, as it is, let alone the Nextel beeps, and the other half of some inane conversation.

The myspace thing doesn't bother me because I don't go there, and it's their profile.

But this ring jacking thing would affect MY phone.

It's supported by the carrier, but I wonder if it's up to the caller to push their taste upon you, or not.
