Introduction

Annoying?! Gets you aggravated?! Does the same to me and millions of others around the world. Ringtone adverts have hit television screens flooding and adulterating the short periods of time between your favourite programmes. These adverts grab peoples' attention, with their unusual sounding ringtones, so that their products can be bought and their companies' incomes can take a boost. They encourage people to spend more time with their phones when they should really be spending less. Research shows that the more time you spend with the mobile phone the more the risk of tumours in later life.
