    Mosquito ring tones... can u hear me now???

    Advertisement



    This is not specifically related to blackberrys, but it is related to cell phones, and being blackberrys ARE cell phones, and being I find this rather interesting, thought I'd pass it on.

    Not sure if some or all of you have heard of Mosquito ring tones, but here's what they are...

    (I had read about them, but never actually heard them)

    Mosquito ring tones are ring tones which are at such a high frequency, that only young or small children can hear them... adults cannot hear them, due to the deterioration of their hearing!

    Apparently, kids in school are putting these ring tones on their cell phones, so that their friends can ring them during class, when they send an IM or SMS, and the kids will hear their phones ring, but the teacher can't hear it!

    Urban legend? Don't believe it?

    Go to this site and while you're there, if you feel like it, come back to this thread and let us know your age and which frequency was the highest one you were able to hear!

    (The ring tones from this site can also be downloaded to your bb)

    I'm 54 and I can hear the 21.1, but I have to turn off the air conditioning, unplug the fridge, and convince the aquarium fish to stop splashing. No way I could have heard it in a classroom, though --

    I can hear them all, but that last one doesn't seem to be working...as tomdick pointed out.

    I think the only reason these work is because everyone else will think it's just some buzzing coming from the TV or whatever electronic device is around.

    I mean if you know it's your ringer then of course you'll notice it. Everyone else will be like what the heck is that high pitch sound. I dunno just my two cents on the ringtones.

    Thumbs up Re: Mosquito ring tones... can u hear me now???

    im 19 and i have been using these tones on my older phones. Now that i have a bb Pearl i need to update ringtones. i have been using some mosquito tones i found on the net and they have been working fine in my college classes. All the kids class go nuts cause they hear it and have no idea what it is but the teacher has no clue.


    thanx!
