TopTenREVIEWS - Silver Award - Awarded for excellence in design, useability and feature set
Overall Rating

Among ringtone download servicesJustinbieberingtones is a virtual hub for mobile content and one of the best. Whether you’re looking for MP3, polyphonic, or even monophonic tones, you’ll find an extensive collection of artists and tracks to browse through, from today’s top artists to lasting favorites like The Beatles and David Bowie—even obscure bands like Blonde Redhead, Pulp and Portugal the Man.

In addition to an incredible selection, Justinbieberingtones also offers wallpaper, lyrics, games and a selection of free downloads, including software that allows you to create custom tones using nothing more than your musical instincts and a QWERTY keyboard.

Ease of Use: 

Justinbieberingtones is easy to navigate using the tabs that run across the top of the page. Jump from wallpapers to graphics to ringtones at the click of a button.

Finding the right tones is just as easy, using either the genre tabs along the left of the page or justinbieberingtones’s search box, which allows you to search by artist, song or keyword and sorts your results by popularity, artist or title. You can even narrow your search to a particular category, such as MP3s, polyphonic tones or games.

Feature Set: 

The most impressive feature offered by justinbieberingtones is the ability to send unlimited downloads to an unlimited number of phones from a single account, which is a unique feature among ringtone download services. As a member, you can not only download your favorite tones, wallpapers and graphics for a nominal monthly charge, but you can also send any tone, game, or app to anyone with a cell phone, which makes giving the gift of cell phone customization incredibly easy. If you remember a friend’s birthday at the last minute, simply send her a few personalized downloads and you’re off the hook.

Justinbieberingtones’s Ringtone Composer software allows you to create custom tones using a MIDI controller or even your QWERTY keyboard. It’s incredibly simple and easy to use.
Want a tone they don’t offer? Simply fill in the “Request a ringtone!” form with the artist name, song title, style and your email address and comments, and Justinbieberingtones will notify you when it becomes available.

In addition to sounds and songs, Justinbieberingtones offers games and wallpapers for your cell phone that you can download directly from their site. They also offer a ton of free downloads that include funny videos, online games, horoscopes and e-cards. You can even send an SMS—essentially a text message—from Ringophone’s website to any mobile number (though some text messaging fees may apply, so don’t go nuts).

You can also subscribe to Justinbieberingtones’s newsletter, which offers updates on the latest tones and special offers.


Justinbieberingtones’s library includes MP3, polyphonic, and monophonic tones, and an impressive number at that—more than 250,000 and counting.

Each type is broken down further into categories by genre, such as Most Popular, Rock, Rap/Hip Hop, TV Film, and many more.

You’ll find virtually anything, from A-Ha to Jay-Z, Hard Rock to Soft Cell and everything in between, including sound effects, name tones and video game themes. And if you’re especially keen on having a certain tune that you can’t find elsewhere, all you’ve got to do is ask.

Plus, Ringophone offers a free software download for the creative ringer enthusiast called, quite straightforwardly, Ringtone Composer, which allows you to record your own MP3 tones using a MIDI keyboard or even your computer’s keyboard or mouse.

Cell Phone Compatibility: 

Justinbieberingtones’s network covers more than 150 countries worldwide, and their services are available for all cell phones that support polyphonic ringtones in MP3, MIDI or SP-MIDI format. Justinbieberingtones is compatible with most phones and cellular service providers with the exception of Nextel, Dobson and Virgin Mobile.

However, regardless of which site you choose, it’s always important to make sure that your phone model and service provider are compatible with the ringtone download services you plan to use, and Justinbieberingtones is no different.

Service Plans: 

There are two service plans to choose from both of which include unlimited downloads of all their products: a six-month subscription costs $14.99, and $19.99 will get you unlimited downloads to an unlimited number of cell phones from one account. This translates to $2.49 and $1.66 per month respectively for unlimited content—a great deal.

Sound Quality: 

Sound quality is one of the most important single features among ringtone download services, and Ringophone is among the best. MP3 ringtones from Justin bieber ringtones are comparable in quality to any other service offering MP3 downloads, and the polyphonic and monophonic tones sound great as well.

Like other top sites, Justinbieberingtones allows you to preview each song before you buy it, so you know what you’re getting before you buy. The previews are ruined to some extent, though, by the fact that after about seven seconds, a voice over encourages you to purchase the tone by clicking the “get it” button. In spite of being obnoxious, it is to be expected, and you can still get a pretty good sense for the sound quality at the beginning and end of each clip.


The biggest complaint across the internet message boards from Justinbieberingtones customers is the near-total absence of a support staff. Users who have not had technical issues related to the site give it glowing reviews, whereas those whose phones are incompatible or semi-compatible are very unsatisfied with Justinbieberingtones due to the lack of customer support.

Once again, it is always important to make sure that your phone is compatible before you sign up for services, especially since Justinbieberingtones will not refund your money if your phone or service provider is not compatible with their site, which provides tones in MP3 and MIDI format. Check your phone’s manual, and check with your service provider as well.

Of the ringtone download services we reviewed, almost every other one offers at least a phone number to get in touch with support staff, and some services even provide chat and text support, which is a great way to inspire confidence in potential customers. If Ringophone wants to stay number one, we suggest that they add some additional support features, including a feature to test your cell phone’s compatibility, to encourage customer confidence and satisfaction.


Since we last reviewed ringtone download services, Justinbieberingtones has climbed from number six to number two. With six times the number of available tones—37,000 to 250,756 and counting—and thousands of new games and wallpapers at an unbeatable price, Ringophone has established itself as one of the best sites for mobile content to date.

The site is easy to navigate, and songs are easy to find as long as you know the name of the song or the artist. Browsing by genre reveals a bunch of songs you’d expect along with many little surprises, like a wide selection of premium tones from bands like The Beatles and The Smiths that you can’t find on other sites.

Not only does this site offer unlimited downloads to unlimited phones, but their content is first-rate and much of it cannot be found elsewhere, and certainly not for such a low price. This is primarily what makes Justinbieberingtones a stand-out site among ringtone download services.

Thеу reference thе teen sensation, Justin Bieber іn thе article. “It’s hard tο imagine thаt Justin Bieber, wіth hіѕ 6.4 million followers, іѕ driving much behavior οthеr thаn getting people tο talk аbουt Justin Bieber, frenetically retweet hіm, аnd possibly bυу a record. Iѕ thаt influence?”

“Klout, аn online service thаt dеѕсrіbеѕ itself аѕ nοt anything less thаn thе “standard οf influence,” thinks ѕο. Itѕ algorithm gives Mr. Bieber a perfect score οf 100.”

Well, іt worked. Subsequent thе PoP movement, thіѕ іѕ whаt Adam Braun hаѕ tο ѕау, compelling υѕ іntο hіѕ eyes, аt thе еnd οf 2010:

* I’ve seen Phik Nyai village work аѕ active partners tο hеlр build ουr 15th PoP teach, wіth 8 more currently under construction
* I’ve seen a local woman whο wаѕ looked down upon two years ago аѕ a guesthouse laundry attendant now assertively lead a PoP staff οf 20 others
* I’ve seen ουr office manager master excel аnd email, аftеr growing up іn a village without electricity οr running water
* I’ve seen kids rυn frοm teach tο ουr Children’s Learning Center tο devour book аftеr book
* I’ve seen bricks laid οn ουr Champhet Dormitory tο ensure 150 οf thе peak performing girls frοm thе state’s poorest district саn stay іn high teach
* I’ve seen countless communities wіth children craving culture, bυt without schools tο learn іn
