Last Saturday I was at the beach with some friends and family, soaking up the Florida sun. Since we're living in the digital age, of course everyone could still not be without their iPhones. I noticed, not for the first time, that when one person received a text, everyone would check their phone.
Then it occurred to me that virtually nobody changes their default iPhone settings for their ring tone or their text alerts...myself included. That all came to a grinding halt on Saturday, and I chose the new setting "Sherwood Forest" for my text alerts. It's a beautiful tone that features a medieval trumpet, the kind that would signal to people that royalty was approaching. That's what I love about my ringtone, it's almost celebratory. The important thing is that it's unique and that I know that my phone is the one getting the alert.
