There are lots of websites that offer ringtone downloads. However, mobile users
face the risk of contracting a trojan or virus if they download ringtones
online. In addition, there are other serious risks involved: hidden charges from
downloading a ringtone and the possibility that your credit card information
will be hacked by fraudulent individuals.
Those Internet sites that require your credit card information should not be
trusted that easily to avoid getting your credit card information stolen. Though
there are legitimate sites that offer free download of ringtones, these
ringtones are usually single tones only. Also, the choices of mobile users are
very limited from these websites.
Mobile users have other options to download ringtones. One, they can do it
through the Wireless Application Protocol or WAP function of their mobile phone.
The WAP function is designed to provide convenience to mobile users. With just a
few strokes of the fingertips, a mobile user can surf the Internet.
Usually, a mobile user is charged per connection time to the WAP Internet. It is
more costly than surfing for a ringtone through cable or wi-fi internet
connections. The surfing and downloading speed is also slower. The convenience
of the mobile Internet, on the other hand, can not be disregarded. Safety from
virus and trojan attacks is also offered aside from free browsing when the
website of the mobile service provider is accessed.
Two, mobile users also have also the option to download ringtones directly from
the kiosks of mobile service providers. Mobile kiosks are available in wireless
centers for use by mobile users. These kiosks do not only offer downloads of
ringtones; wallpapers, themes and other services can be accessed from these
stand-alone customer service machines. If mobile users have no idea of a
particular service, a customer service representative is readily available to
assist and explain the service.
Mobile users can also download ringtones from other mobile users through the
infra-red or bluetooth wireless connection. Infra-red wireless connection is
shorter in range compared to bluetooth. Also, infra-red requires necessary
alignment of the source mobile phone to the recipient mobile phone for transfer.
The bluetooth, on the other hand, is a newer technology that has a wider range
and there is no necessary alignment to be done.
As newer functions and capabilities of mobile phones are introduced, we can be
assured of more convenience in store for mobile user. However, even if the
technology gets more advanced, trojan, virus and hack attacks will never
disappear. So, even there are lots of options available for mobile user to be
able to download ringtones online, extra caution should be observed at all
