Ringtone Fails highlights abuse and misuse of ringtones

Rochester, New York – Say it ain’t so, Shaq? Even the big man makes mistakes, as his annoying ringtone went off during a live broadcast on TNT’s coverage of an NBA game! It was a costly mistake, as Shaq threw the phone across the studio, reminiscent of the ‘brick’ free throw shots he was known for. And now, that phone is as useful as a brick… all because of a ringtone.

The lesson here is, when you’re “on stage” or in a job interview, on a date, etc., put that phone on silent, or have a professional sounding ringtone for goodness sake! Your phone will thank you for it!

The folks at NoTie, makers of Ringtone Director, are sending a free ringtone to Shaquille O’Neal customized for his use. Anyone can download the same custom ringtone for your iPhone, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry.

In honor of Shaquille O’neal’s error, Ringtone Director Pro is on sale for $0.99 instead of $4.99, so he can save a little bit of money to pay for his new iPhone!

Ringtone Director allows users to create custom ringtones that speak whatever the user types. Users can create Talking Caller ID ringtones in 50 different voices using the Pro version, and combine the text-to-speech with assorted sound effects to ‘get their attention.’ Custom ringtones can be used for alarm clock alerts, incoming text messages, and more. There are no limitations on the Pro version and over six million custom ringtones have been created by No Tie’s users so far.

Versions of the app are also available in European, Asian, and Arabic languages as well.
