Text message from my mobile phone provider (Optus) – emphasis is mine:
To get a free ringtone, call 966 and select 9 after the greeting. Call costs 30c/30secs, standard data charges apply, expires 30/08/07.
I’m not entirely sure which definition of free costs 30c/30secs and then some. I very much doubt that they’re going to be granting every caller enough intellectual property to describe it as libre.
Also, what sort of person would want to pay to get an unspecified ringtone?
