Fun with iPhone Ringtones

Last night I was at the bar and had an idea for a ringtone. We were chatting about how someone should do a side-by-side test between iPhone 3G in NYC and a dialup modem. From that I got the idea to make a ringtone with the screeches and clicks of dialup in action (remember that?).

Anyway, after checking in with some folks and finding out making a ringtone was as easy as opening GarageBand and exporting to iTunes, I made one for myself. So without any further ado: iPhone dialup ringtone. Enjoy.
