The Evolution of Ring Tones

Phones – Then and Now

Alexander Graham Bell may have started the ball rolling in terms of beginning the world of the telephone, but it sure has gone a long way now to the twentieth century.

Now, each individual, almost, has a hand held mobile phone that they can use to get in touch with their friends, family member and love ones. Not to mention the fact that talking is not the only way to get in touch with someone, but other alternatives like sending an SMS, or short messaging system, or talking to the person himself, by use of a video phone is possible as well.

If we go through a short history of how the telephone began, we can safely assume that two cans with a string in between, was really the basic concept of a telephone then.

With no way to know that the other person would be calling you, because no tones existed yet during that time, you can just imagine how one would decide on when to call.

Then came the telephone with a really harsh jarring sound to indicate that a call is being made, which was followed by a more melodious ‘ring, ring’ on a small telephone with a thick wire connecting the handset to the body where the digits are located.

Can you still even recall those types of telephone when you would have to turn a disc of sorts to dial the numbers, one through nine?

A few years after that, came the same concept but now, with numbers that you can punch, instead of rotate.

Mobile phones were then introduced, and the first few mobile phones were quite bulky, being attached to another item where the signal and battery pack was held.

Moving fast forward, you now have the handheld mobile phones that are sleeker, thinner and definitely more attractive and dazzling to look at.

Now you do not even have to suffer listening to the jarring ringing tone, because now, we now have the polyphonic tones, and the mp3 tunes. What is even greater is that you can cut pieces of your favorite music to be chosen and downloaded to be your ring tone. You don’t really have to download and listen to the whole two to three minute song, you can cut it on parts that are your favorite, and make them specific ring tones for people in your contact.

Isn’t technology really great?
