    I see your point, though it would be nice if a few things were compatible, ex: a non-Apple cell phone can't get ringtones from a Mac machine. I do hope Apple will always make quality products and stay on top.

    How so? Either you send over the ringtone in a friendly format or, if you're using DRM'd ringtones, find another (DRM isn't the fault of the phone and, to be fair, not really Apple's either).

    You may be right. All I know is, when I called the place I got my phone, they said it wouldn't work with my Mac. I know DRM isn't the fault of the phone or Apple; in fact, I didn't consider the DRM issue. Oops! Thanks for the info.

    Chances are, the people you talked to are clueless idiots who've never used a Mac. You'd be better off asking us.

    Yes, I agree. I will know better next time. Now I need to find the appropriate thread to ask about this.

    It certainly will. Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry all support the Mac in some way. What phone do you have?

    My phone is an AT&T model. I guess I'll have to get a different phone, but I can't, my phone comes with a special plan for people who don't use it much. They sure have it all rigged up, like everywhere else. I don't use the phone that much, so it's no big deal, just would've been fun. Lucky I got a ringtone I really liked, when I still had a pc that got online.

    Most workers at any company seem to only know what they're told. Even at Apple, I'm sure. Occasionally, someone somewhere will share extra info, but they have to be careful- remember, these calls are monitored or recorded. I'm sure they're as much to control the workers. It wouldn't make much sense for a windows person to know how Apple works, now that I think of it.

    That's the carrier, not the make and model.

    Is it a Samsung, LG, Sony, Blackberry, etc?

    I know, but that's what it says on the phone itself.

    Surely it must have a make on it at least - I don't think I've ever seen a product without some sort of branding (this could be a first). Is this a smartphone?

    I don't know. It does seem to have some smart features, like the option to use a specific ringtone for a contact.
