    is there any way to download ringworm tones???
    Never mind, I know, “don’t give up your day job”.
    Maybe a speed dial feature that calls 911 when you right click then?

    now this is one useless thing. “hold on a sec, gotta put the phone down to send you a link.” CLICK! oh darn, I keep on hanging up on people, what might be the reason?

    at best, this totally cuts on one’s ability to multitask while talking on the phone. at worst, I’m asking myself why in the world would I want to buy an(other) impractical novelty.
