So I am browsing through Handango as I often do and I come across an ad for Ringphonic by HDM which is a subscription based ringtone download service for the BlackBerry 71xx series devices. I glance over the Ringphonic page on Handango and I say to myself, “That’s not too bad. 8 ringtones for 9 or 10 bucks.” Then look a little closer and I see that it is 9 or 10 bucks per month for you to be able to download 8 ringtones a month.

Now, I am not knocking Ringphonic because this is one of the more popular BlackBerry downloads at over 38,000 and the user rating is 5 out of 5 stars. Just cannot for the life of my figure out why I would need a subscription for such a service. Are ringtone downloads for BlackBerry 71xx series devices in such demand that people are willing to sign up a monthly subscription to get them?

Eight ringtones a month indefinable seems a bit much to me. I am absolutely missing the point so I hope that someone can explain this one to me.
