Ok, I know this isn’t a typical How-To article. However, I just couldn’t resist. It turns out Microsoft wants to BING your phone. This morning Microsoft released 3 three Bing-branded ringtones for your mobile phone. They are calling them BingTones.
You can find the links here:
- Three Bing-branded ringtones for your mobile device (BineTones.zip)
- Three BingTones for your phone (BingTones-Internal.zip)
Both are surprisingly the same 3 Ring Tones/BingTones, so my guess is the release manager made a mistake and released both on Microsoft Download.
Either way, after you download them, here’s how you would install them on your Mobile Phone:

BingTone Installation Instructions
The BingTones are in MP3 format, so they should be usable on most phones.
Instructions for installing the BingTones on your Windows Mobile phone are below. For other phones, please consult your user manual. For some phone models, including the iPhone, there are free or nearly free software programs available on the Internet that enable you to install custom ringtones.
