Some Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones have a built-in Composer in them and through a series of key presses, you can input a tune to have as your ring-tone. we show you what keys to press, in what order, to get particular tunes (for more details, visit the Nokia instructions page) or the Sony Ericsson instructions page. We also offer free ringtones when you phone up to roder any other ring tone. See the polyphonic and monophonic ring tone pages for more details

We try to get the site updated every week. However we can't always guarantee this so the best way to find out when it has been updated is to join the mailing list. Click here for details on how to join.

If you are unable to see the new tunes then you may have to refresh your computer's cache. This is done by pressing CTRL + F5 together when on the site.
8. I'd like a particular song as a ring tone, can I suggest it to you?
Yes. However we do receive lots of requests so we cannot guarantee when, or if, a tune will get done. Before requesting a tune though, check to make sure it's not on the site already! See the Contacts page for details of where to send your request to.
9. I've composed a version of a song, can I send it to you?
If you want! We welcome songs that aren't already on the site.
10. How much do the polyphonic ring tones/pictures cost?
The cost of the ring tones (and picture products) depends on what country you are calling from. The cost of the phone call is stated underneath the number that you have to dial. The cost of ordering by SMS is 3 x £1.50 (or equivalent).We also run services that allow you to receive a ring tone every day and occasionally have other special offers that allow you to get ring tones more cheaply. We currently offer a service that offers you ring tones at 30p each provifing that you sign up to receive a minimum of ten ring tones (costing £3.00)
11. I've ordered a Logo/Ringtone/Picture Message, why haven't I received it yet?

12. When I try to view more logos/picture messages in each section it keeps bringing up the same page. Why?
You need to have cookies enabled on your PC to see the whole selection. To do this click on Internet Options in the Tools menu in Internet Explorer (version 6), select Privacy and move the slider bar down to one of the two lowest positions.
13. When I dial the number to order, the phone either makes a bleeping sound or says number not in use.
This will be because your provider has premium rate barring on your account, either phone them up direct to lift the bar, or use another source, i.e. your landline BT phone.
14. I ordered a product, why do I keep receiving text messages?
We sometimes run special promotions where to qualify for the specific deal you have to subscribe to a particular service. This subscription can be stopped by either texting STOP to 88866 or by texting STOPMOBSI to 88866 depending on what product you have ordered. PLEASE NOTE THE 88866 NUMBER ONLY APPLIES TO THE UK.
