These days pretty much any new phone that you buy lets you add your own custom ringtones. While there are lots of websites and applications devoted to ringtones I thought it would be nice to add some retro ringtones to my blog.

As I personally own a HTC HD7 Windows Phone all of the Ringtones have been designed to fit with the requirements for the Windows Phone OS; they are all 39 seconds long and are under 1mb in size.

While I do not own an Android, Blackberry or iPhone I would assume that all of these are capable of playing mp3 files and using them as ringtones. If there are different requirements – a different format, sorter length etc then please let me know and I’ll consider converting them.

If anyone would like to suggest a retro tune from the ZX Spectrum or the Commodore 64 then please leave a comment and of course if you do like the ringtones then you could also leave a comment if you wish!!

    Harro! Any chance of putting the 128k Spectrum’s version of Snare on here? The Commodore 64 had Snare as well, but was a totally different game. The theme tune to the Speccy one was massively superior!

  4. […] To download the ringtones, head on over to the Retro VGM blog. […]
