The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Now that's a ringtone

Literally, in fact: the tone was originally produced by a bell. A church bell. Specifically, a church bell from the Catholic diocese of Linz, Austria. (Three tones are offered; I opted for the Immaculata, whose somber timbre seems somehow appropriate for someone who hates to answer the phone.)

And apparently the German word for "ringtone" is "Klingelton," which has a certain, um, resonance.
