    I have been in CPF looking at the posts and replies. I saw one that mentioned free ringtones so I went into the site and tried to get one. (I have no idea what site it was and have looked to try and find the original message about it.) The site didn't give me a ringtone but a damn "joke of the day." I can't seem to get it off my phone. I have enough humor in my life and I'm not finding this funny!! Any suggestions. HELP!
    Thanks in advance.

    If you can find that post, please click the "Report Post" button near the bottom left of the post so we can check it out. A similar thing happened to me once, and you have to reply to the joke with STOP or CANCEL (sorry I can't remember which one, I think I tried both before I finally got a confirmation message.

    Please be careful of those things, I don't trust a lot of sites that want my phone number to send me free stuff, not after what I went through with one of them already. I download or make my own graphics and ringtones, and use an uploader site that allows me to retrieve the file via WAP with a jumpcode.

    write them an email and ask for them how to get it to stop.
    Can you hear me now?
    Lois: You're drunk again.
    Peter: No, I'm just exhausted 'cause I've been up all night drinking.

    BLKBear1,
    Thank u so much for that info. I called immediately and they said it was cancelled. I'll be able to tell around 4 o'clock cuz thats what time I got the others. Even if they charge me the 9.99 this month it will be worth it just to get the dang thing outta my face.
    Again I thank u for taking the time to give me this info...

    Re: Joke of the FLIPPIN Day!!!

    Glad it was helpful to you Starkar.

    The bad thing about these type of services, is that you get charged even if you don't use them. And anyone can enter anyone else's phone number into one or more of these sites to "Get Even" with them. And all it takes in a few $9.99 sites and one of two $19.99 sites to add a few hundred dollars to a person's account.

    They try to justify it by doing something like a daily text message, or allowing you to download once a month one ringtone, which snags way to many people into signing up using a text message, because they are certain not to see the disclaimer on TV or listen to it on the radio, because most only hear the "FREE RINGTONE" part of the advertisements.

    And when the ad in on a web page, 99% of the people don't read the entire web page, where on the bottom of the page it states what you are getting and paying for.
