In the mobile phone, what do you think is the most customizable feature? It is the ringtone. You can have a variety of ringtones from monophonic, polyphonic to truetones as your ringtones.
Truetone ringtones are created by using various digital encoding technologies. The encoding is done in order to hoard a truetone’s sound form. Truetone ringtones can be in many forms. The basic form is WAV. The WAV is a waveform of sound which is in its uncompressed form. The Truetone ringtones in WAV form are of excellent sound quality but they take a lot of space since they are uncompressed.
To resolve this issue, there have been a lot of compression technologies. If you use the appropriate parameters, the compression not only reduces the size but may also result in a compressed form that might sound exactly like the original uncompressed truetone ringtone WAV form. The most popular compression techniques include MP3 (also known as MPEG), Windows media and the ones for Linux based PDAs and phones, the Open Source Compression (also known as OGG).
Like other types of ringtones, truetone ringtones are also available for download from the internet. They are usually free but sometimes may cost a small fee. The users can attempt to create their own truetone ringtone from the digital media that they already have. There are a lot of softwares (sharwares and freewares) that allow you to rip music from the digital media to any form that you want it to be. Thus it is very easy to create your own truetone ringtone.
When you have finished creating a truetone ringtone on your computer, you can get it into your cell phone using either the data cable or Bluetooth or the GPRS facility that may be acquired from your service provider. From the above, It can be concluded that truetone ringtones are just not generated or created like the other forms of ringtones, but they are the actual form of sound.
So, next time before buying a truetone ringtone, think about how easily and creatively you can have your own truetone, the way you like it.
