Music Videos and Ringtones
Using videos ringtones has become more and more popular. Judging by the way technology developed, this is no wonder. After the arrival of cell phones that could play videos, this wonderful communication devices evolved into even more complicated and complex cell phones with high resolution and a wide LCD screen, able to support video ringtones - and not just one or two. As we see in the way it evolved, it should be plausible that video ringtones might replace the standard ringtone. There are indicators in this respect.
Video ringtones are not expensive-which, we must admit, is a sound and powerful argument in their favor. Most of them are totally free and easy to get. The ones that actually cost something come with a minimal charge. One can download the video ringtone from the internet, or nab from a computer or DVD. And, generally they are attractive: catchy sounds and appealing in image, or personalized according to the users' wish using homemade videos with friends, family, etc. Once the owner of the phone decided he got tired with the same video over and over again, a new video can easily be procured, especially when you have the appropriate technical device.
But, there may be some drawbacks. First: battery. Video ringtones increase the load on the battery, so one may need to charge more often. Another issue is: potential virus threat. Some users fear that alongside with the video content, when downloading it they actually might download spyware or a virus as well. We must admit, this is one of the risks when downloading different contents. Even if the web portal provides anti-virus protection, it may be that the protection is simply inadequate. One very important aspect has to do actually with the people, the users. Namely, not everyone is keen on having video ringtones simply because they imply having a technically challenging cell phone. Particularly older people do not want to have phones that are complicated and too complex. They would rather settle for a simpler, easy-to-use with clear, plane menus and settings, consequently, with simple, loud and recognizable ringtones.
Eventually, people may get so used to having their favorite star or family with them every time the phone rings that they actually might not want to go back to the regular ringtone anymore.. or perhaps, quite the contrary.
