Waiting for the Phone to Bark
By Daniel Terdiman

The sound of cell phones ringing in public may soon get much more interesting -- or annoying, depending on your point of view.

For better or worse, be prepared to hear burps, farts, cats meowing and dogs barking, and even pornographic sounds alerting wireless customers that someone is on the line.

New services let cell-phone customers create just about any kind of ring tone they want, and designate different ones for specific people in their phonebooks. One such service, from Xingtone, allows subscribers to use any audio file on their PC as a ring tone.

"I've done about eight or 10 so far, and every day I'll find some song or a riff on a song, and I'll say, 'Hey, I want that as my ringer,'" said Xingtone user Dave Cobb. "It's actually had me seeking out funny sounds for my phone rather than being spoon-fed some sound from my carrier."

Ring tones are a growing business for cell-phone providers. According to Seamus McAteer, principal analyst at Zelos Group, sales of ring tones will top $1.5 billion worldwide in 2003, and nearly $100 million in the United States. But while the global market has more or less matured, McAteer said, in the United States it appears poised to double year over year for at least another couple of years.

Jenny Stevens, a spokeswoman for Sprint PCS, said her company charges between $1.50 and $2.50 per ring tone.

That may be pricey for those who want to use many different tones, but Stevens said that from August 2002 to June 2003, the last period for which the company has figures, ring tones made up "the lion's share" of 15 million downloads by subscribers.

However, the selection of ring tones offered by Sprint and other carriers is limited to what they or their partners make available. That limitation has opened the door to companies like Xingtone, which hopes to capture some of that business by giving subscribers the ability to create their own ring tones and avoid paying the carriers.

The company is betting that consumers would rather pay it a one-time fee of $15 for an unlimited number of ring tones than buy them one at a time from their wireless carrier, especially if they can create their own sounds.

"My job is to get rid of bing bong bing and that annoying electric chatter that you hear when you're in a restaurant," said CEO Brad Zutaut.

Although Xingtone does not have a partnership with any cell-phone carriers, it recently adapted its technology for use by AT&T Wireless, Cingular Wireless and T-Mobile customers. In addition, the service has been available for the last few months to about 28,000 Sprint PCS users.

Xingtone subscribers download ring tones to their mobile phones by using their carriers' wireless Web capabilities. Thus, downloading a ring tone is just like moving a file from the Web to a PC.

For its part, Sprint PCS said that while third parties such as Xingtone are taking advantage of its open architecture, it does not endorse such services. A pop-up message warns Sprint PCS subscribers that they are downloading third-party software at their own risk.

"People can go to any website and get any content they would like on the Internet," Stevens said. "That's the route Sprint decided to go, versus blocking certain sites."

And that decision, McAteer predicts, could come back to haunt the carriers just when they're expecting to be bringing in millions of dollars from their ring-tones businesses.

"The Napsterization of ring tones as we move toward a growing install base of handsets that can support real tones (as opposed to polyphonic MIDI-based tones) is a significant danger" to carriers, said McAteer, "and one that, given the nascent state of digital rights management on handsets today, is going to be difficult to stymie, especially as we move toward a model where handsets are built on an open platform."

While Xingtone users are recording whatever sounds suit their fancies, some users of another service called Modtones are choosing silence.

Modtones, which made a name for itself selling MIDI versions of popular songs through several wireless carriers, recently came across the idea of allowing users to assign a silent ring to certain callers. The callers hear the phone ring, but those being called don't. Eventually, the callers are dumped into voicemail.

"We started getting requests for (silent tones)," said Jeremy Xavier, marketing manager for Modtones' parent company, Faith. "We didn't understand why anyone would do that when you could just turn your ringer off."

But the requests kept coming, and before long, Modtones decided to respond. For $2, users on compatible networks can download 25 seconds of silence and assign that lack of sound to any caller in their phonebook.

"It would be like (any other tone) playing, only there's nothing playing," Xavier said. "The only way you'd know that someone was calling was that you'd have to be staring at your phone. To me, it's a sneaky thing."
