Egyptian Ringtones

Egyptians are connected. There are so many cell phones ringing all the time here. Everyone has one.

The thing that is a little unusual, is that when a cell phone rings, the owner does not immediately answer it. He will take it out of his pocket, and hold it for a moment, perhaps looking at it, letting it ring and ring, and then answer it. At first I thought it was that they are just in no hurry, until it occurred to me that they like the sound of the ringing phone.

I think they pay for the various ring tones, and want to get their money's worth.
