"the special edition Star Trek® Communicator Phone offers fans of cool
mobile technology the ability ... access ring tones ..."
Star Trek communicators only make one sound. Ring tones would totally
ruin the experience. Anything other than the staticy chirp-chirp-chirp
heard when Kirk flips open his communicator would be unthinkable.
As a side note, anybody ever read the Star Trek Technical Manual? The
original series version has a complete circuit diagram for the
communicator... unfortunately I don't know quite enough about
electronics to really figure if it's a real radio circuit or not... it's
certainly plenty complex though..
