"Davy" cell phone ringtone

"Davy" cell phone ringtone

I was wondering if one exists. I found a rather poor version of "Broadway" somewhere online, but it didn't do it justice to say the least.

For anyone interested, this site has a bunch of college song ringtones (but they charge for them - might be free ones elsewhere):

I checked this out when I first started with VoiceStream (now T-Mobile), and not only did they not have "Give My Regards to Broadway" under showtunes, they had a list of college fight songs available which did not include "Davy" (but did include "A Utah Man";).

Unfortunately, ringtone arrangements are usually pretty crappy. I've seen a lot of ads for "Handy-Klingeltone" of the Nena/Kim Wilde duet "Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime", which has a synthesized melody which would be perfect and quite distinctive, but when I listened to the sample, it was just the vocal part, which sounds a lot cheesier.

I started making one after a game at the Regent Lounge and never finished it, but I should probably do that. And my ringtones don't suck :-)

Sorry. My first question wasn't clear. I should have asked if you DL'ed the ringtone from Virgin or if there was another way to add ringtones to a Virgin phone. When I got my virgin phone, I didn't look through the selection of ringtones as I thought paying $2 for a ringtone was silly. But I never imagined that Davy would be available...

Thanks for the info.

I never even thought of this. Who knows of a good way to get one if your provider is Verizon...


Oh yeah, I have the motorola T720

Do all of the responders who have changed their ring tones own the interface needed to load it into the phone? I am not ready to buy one but then again I just looked on the Verizon site and can't find one for my phone at this time.

Is there a way to dial a site that will send the ring tone to the phone?

Of course, if we all have "Davy," then getting a call at a Cornell game will turn into quite an event... ;-)

Right now my phone can't even download ringtones, but I'm planning to upgrade soon. I'm on Verizon, and will probably get one of the newer (color screen) Samsung models, which can download them. If they have support for programming ring tones, I'll definitely try making one for "Davy".

Here is some info on Verizon's 'Get It Now' technology:
[news.corporate.findlaw.com]

Does anyone know if you can use/write open-source programs for Verizon? (or any other service providers) Or does it all have to go thru Verizon's content provider application process? I'm not too familiar with all of this, being my 2 year old phone is now a clunky dinosaur :-D

If you can hear your cell phone ring at a hockey game, you're doing something wrong. :-P

I would rather have everyone's cell phones go off all at the same time, with any kind of ring, and then head straight into "Your mom called..."

If that could be organized, it would be fantastic!

Why don't we get them to put a ringing cell phone up to the announcer's microphone?

I really hope that all of us will have our cell phones turned OFF when we're actually at the games. Nothing worse than someone yammering away during a game - big pet peeve of mine...

Pick a time of the game (say, first face-off *after* the 2d period cowbell (it has to be done during a break so you don't have to stare at a clock instead of the action)) and have people just call the person sitting next to them inside Lynah.

That wouldn't work though because once you're in a call the phone won't ring again - it'll just beep to let you know you have another incoming call. The best thing would be one of those websites that does auto-wakeup calls (or someone write a program to do it!), and people can go sign up for it to call their phone at a set time during the game. Course it'd be hard to predict what the current 'state' of the game would be when the call came in....maybe if they could sign up and be entered in a queue, and then someone can just click a 'Run' button or something to start dialing all the numbers in the queue simultaneously, if that's possible. Any CS majors who know alot about VoIP in here? :-)

If half the arena called and half the arena let the phones ring it would work.

Maybe I'm just ignorant having never owned a mobile phone, but isn't there a button you can push to make it ring? Like if you want to hear or set your ring tone or something? You probably wouldn't even need a signal to do so, since I hear it's somewhat touch-and-go to get a signal inside the tin can that is Lynah.

Or you can do what I do...yell "Ring Ring" really loud. :-)

Well, a while back, I had "composed" the New Fight Song, My Old Cornell, and Davy into my Sony Ericcson T68i. Tedious, but not difficult. Call me bored.

I'm not sure if I can transfer it out, but if it is possible, then maybe I can post it somewhere.

If I find out anything, I'll let you all know.

Anyone who has a cellphone can play their own ringer. No calling need be involved.

Just to update everyone on this...I got a new phone finally, and using Verizon's GetItNow browser with the Ringster 2.0 app, found "Give My Regards to Davy" in the "Fight Songs - Other" category. It doesn't sound half bad, though I'm unsure if it does the Big Red Band justice. :-D

Cingular has Davy on it's Ringtones... it also has what it lists as "Far Above Cayuga's Waters", except it's not... it's C-O-R-N-E-double L .

I've considered them, except I now have a phone capable of polyphotonic ringtones, and it feels like such a waste to use the plain old tones :-D .
