Ringtones are sounds that your mobile phone makes when you receive a telephone call.

With today's mobile phone technology growing at a rapid rate, modern mobile phone ringtones now come in three different formats: monophonic, polyphonic and mp3.

Monophonic ringtones are the oldest form of ringtones and can resemble anything from a computer beep to a standard house telephone. Monophonic ringtones can only produce one sound or note at a time, hence monophonic.

Polyphonic ringtones are a little more advanced, and where introduced around the millennium. Polyphonic ringtones have the capability of producing 16 separate notes simultaneously. This creates a richer, better sounding ringtone which resembles more like an actual tune or beat.
