It's the ringtone that kids use so adults can't hear them use phones in class for txt msgs.

I'm gonna play it for my dog later. lol

That noise is kind of intense. I wonder how phone companies figured that one out?

Considering most phone companies are run by adults they are going to either need lots of crzy children (semi imposs to get sane, non hyper/obese these days) OR lots of dogs...the question is which costs less?

they didnt. It was developed by some other company for use outside of convience stores to keep kids from loitering by playing the sound constantly. It would irritate the kids but adult shoppers wouldnt even notice.

SO what about adults using it to piss kids off on train and such, they can just claim that they cant here anything.

That is one annoying sound.

As for that being better than vibrate, vibrate can be heard, not as obvious as the latest 50 cent song blaring into the discussion but there is a low bass tone to it going off, plus rattling whatever else is in your pockets.


Having heard that sound... I'll take my chances with vibrate.
