I don't even have a cell phone so I'm just guessing -- but are you supposed to go to your cell phone manufacturer's website to see if they're listing any?
:confused:

I do know that some cell phones can't have their ring tones added, so I hope yours can have new ones.

Thanks for the further details. I actually did find Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride once, but not much else. You're right, there doesn't seem to be much out there.

I think on the Japanese cell phone systems they have more. Have you tried to see if any of those are compatible?

Walt Disney Internet Group to Offer Ring Tones Featuring Character Voices to Sprint Wireless Customers

LAS VEGAS, Oct 22, 2003 -- Walt Disney Internet Group today announced that it is developing character voice ring tones that will bring the familiar voices of popular Disney and Disney/Pixar characters to mobile phones in the U.S. Disney Mobile voice ring tones are currently slated to launch in the U.S. by the end of the year, and will be available to PCS Vision customers.

Initially, the character voices will include Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Stitch, Pooh and Tigger. There will be several messages available from each of the characters. For example, one of Mickey's rings will tell customers to "Answer your phone," and another Mickey message will tell customers that "You got a message." One Goofy ring tone will say "Hello? Is anybody there?" and a message alert will tell customers, "Oh boy, you got some mail!" The ring tones can be set for calls, voicemail alerts and alarms.

Individual ring tones or messages are slated to cost $2.50 each for PCS Vision customers.

"We are always looking to extend the Disney magic in the wireless medium and our characters are the heart of that magic. With the technology and market ready for voice ring tones, this is a natural for us," said Larry Shapiro, executive vice president, business development and operations for The Walt Disney Internet Group, which distributes wireless content for the brands of The Walt Disney Company.

Disney Mobile voice ringers have been available in Japan since June 2001. Informational wireless content from Disney, ESPN and ABC has been available in the U.S. for several years, and late last year, Walt Disney Internet Group introduced ring tones and graphics based on Disney characters and properties on earlier wireless platforms. Disney launched its first mobile content in Japan in August 2000 and since then has garnered more than 3.5 million paid subscriptions. It is available now throughout Asia and in Europe.

Walt Disney Internet Group Launches Disneymobile.Com

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Dec 15, 2003 -- Walt Disney Internet Group (WDIG) today launched its first comprehensive consumer Internet site devoted to its wireless content offerings (http://www.disneymobile.com). The site will provide consumers with information regarding Disney Mobile content offerings and purchases as well as product demonstrations. It can be accessed directly from the homepage of Disney.com, the number one family entertainment site that attracted 14.4 million unique visitors in November.

Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung) is the exclusively featured handset provider on DisneyMobile.com.

"We've seen significant growth in both consumer awareness and usage of our mobile content over the past year, primarily driven by carriers' marketing efforts. We now believe the U.S. market has matured to a point that allows us to begin marketing directly to our customers," said Larry Shapiro, executive vice president of business development and operations for WDIG. "We know that many wireless subscribers turn to the Internet for information on specific content. Through Disney.com, one of the most highly trafficked sites on the Internet, we can help introduce our customers to this new form of Disney entertainment."

In recent research conducted by WDIG, more than half of the respondents surveyed ranked carrier websites as their primary source of mobile content information.

The site offers Disney Mobile information on the latest downloadable content for mobile phones, including games, graphics, ring tones, and Disney mobile greeting cards. In each section of the site, consumers can view product descriptions, content demonstrations and information on carriers that offer the content, as well as information detailing where to find the content within each carrier's menu system. The games section will also provide information on how to play individual games. Content may also be viewed by individual Disney character or property. For example, graphics from Disney/Pixar's "Finding Nemo" can be found in the graphics section or on a "Finding Nemo" aggregate page.

Shortly after launch, the site will allow Sprint wireless subscribers to enter their phone number and send a message, directly to their PCS Vision phone, which includes a link to the requested Disney game. By accessing the link via the handset, subscribers can review the game and easily purchase it via their handset, if they choose to do so.

As the exclusive advertised handset manufacturer for Disneymobile.com, Samsung will have a significant presence on many pages within Disney's mobile phone center, which offers information on Samsung's digital camera phones and other handsets and prominently features Samsung via online advertising and promotions. Additionally, Samsung will coordinate product sweepstakes on Disneymobile.com offering its latest wireless phones as prizes.

As part of its outreach to wireless handset users, Disney will work with Samsung to provide content of popular Disney characters to the manufacturer's customer base. In the near future, Disney content will be available on Samsung's entertainment Web site, Samsung Fun Club, at http://mobile.samsungusa.com.

"Mobile entertainment is experiencing tremendous growth in the U.S. Samsung's association with Disney reinforces our commitment to developing innovative products, including advanced handsets that serve as entertainment devices, and our dedication to creating relationships with content providers," said Peter Skarzynski, senior vice president of wireless terminals, Samsung.

WDIG entered the mobile content market in 1999 with some of the first informational, text-based content services in the U.S. The following year, WDIG partnered with NTT DoCoMo on iMode in Japan to introduce the widely recognized Disney-i service including Disney branded graphics, ring tones, games and utilities. Today, Disney Mobile is the number one premium mobile content provider in Japan and is a leading global content provider, with services available in 21 markets with 34 mobile carriers around the world.
