Q. Do all phones allow programmable ringtones?
Not always, and there is a lot of confusion about
that. Older phones, and the majority of phones manufactured for
the North-American market before the year 2002 don't offer that
While most phones offer
customizable ringtones nowadays, some models block users from
adding ringtones themselves in a free, do-it-yourself manner, in
some cases because the networks are asking them to do so, in
order to force users to buy ringtones from them.
