A selection of classic phone ringtones

I like classic phone ringers. We grew up on TV hearing them, and up until recently, it was still relatively common to have a real, bell-driven ringer sound that you had gotten a phonecall.

Wanting these to be preserved, I hunted around Freesound and others trying to find good examples of phone ringers so that I could use them on my modern cell phone. I need to go back and remaster them – they’re too quiet for day to day use unless you keep your ringtone volume at maximum.
