    Ringtones for dispatch

    We are looking for a new ringtone for dispatch. Something obnoxious enough to wake us up and uniquely identify who is calling.
    Any ideas?

    Ringtones for dispatch

    I use the alarm tone on my iPhone. Sounds like the buzzer in a power plant. Wakes me up every time.

    The obvious answer is the theme from "Mission Impossible". The klaxon signaling a submarine to dive at highest volume is most likely to wake you up though.

    How bout the sound of a Telephone ringing...This has bugged me since I was a lil kid..Very obnoxious when I'm trying to sleep.

    I am trying to find the original Blah Blah from Nextell..does not seem to be available anymore??? But my phone isnt smart enought to find it.
    Not for dispatch but for those special ppl in my contacts..

    I use a snippet from this, starting at about the 15 second mark.

    I use the Telephone ringing because it's the loudest one I have and seems to cut through other sounds like music. Although, I think it's getting a little too popular when it goes off and half a dozen people are reaching for their phones

    We use a fire siren and it never fails to get our attention and everyone else's. Very easy to hear in the truck and it has been left in the sleeper.

    Re: Ringtones for dispatch

    I don't have a special ringtone for dispatch. All incoming calls have the same ringtone, Little Wing. If I had different ringtones I would never know if it was my phone ringing or some other phone. I do have a very special photo that appears on my phone screen when dispatch calls:
