Why would you go for "chep" ringtones, when you can get them for free?

cheap ringtones are not always what they seem.

for a user who is learning, they might accidentally browse around on wap, maybe screw up a download or five, and generally spend more on WAP charges than if they had just bought one from the operator....

Bluetooth and IRing are great ways to go for free ringtones, but otherwise, i just stick to the operators offerings...

There's a reason why I would never purchase cheap ringtones: scam. Some companies may be ok, but most of the times what you are purchasing is a subscription service. Read the fine print on those TV ads for example. It's something like $2 per ringtone, but in small letters they say you are also subscribing to their service, which sends you up to three of four new messages every week, each costing you those $2.

I had e-mails from people asking what to do, since this can get into a quite havy bill every month.

The best thing to do? Invest that money in a cable and do your own ringtones, or use the ones from the mobile operator.

There's no such a thing as free lunch, anywhere in the world.
