Perhaps, we know the answer for Apple’s Steve Jobs, and Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer, or RIM’s Co-CEO Jim Basillie, but the question goes out to you…Mobile phones are brought to the dinner table, the bedroom, and the bathroom stall, but MSNBC.com says there’s another trend emerging — phones are being taken to the after world. So, the question is which phone would you bring?

Noelle Potvin, family service counselor for a funeral home and cemetery in Hollywood, Calif., told MSNBC:

  1. Is it legal for a dead man to own a Sim card or a cell phone?

    Interesting concept, but I wonder how many people would throw the phone into the grave, unless it's a dead head set!

  2. no wonder we're at over 100% penetration

  3. What a great idea for the ringtone subscription business!! Sell a monthly subscription of $9.99 for a phone that is six feet under. Talk about “Life” time value of a subscriber!

    So, I just could not resist cranking up some “Grateful Dead” and producing the industries first top ten ringtones for or dearly departed’s phones. With a little tongue in cheek , here we “go”.
    Number 10:

    “Casey Jones” By the Grateful Dead

    There are several potential ringtone’s from this one song, here is the best:

    Trouble ahead, lady in red,
    Take my advice you’d be better off dead.
    Switchman’s sleeping, train hundred and two is
    On the wrong track and headed for you.

    Number 9:

    “Hello, Goodbye” By the Beatles

    “You say yes, I say no
    You say stop and I say go go go, oh no
    You say goodbye and I say hello
    Hello hello
    I don’t know why you say goodbye, I say hello
    Hello hello
    I don’t know why you say goodbye, I say hello”

    Number 8:

    “Kiss me through the Phone” by Soulja Boy

    Girl you know I miss you
    I just wanna kiss you
    But I can’t right now so baby kiss me thru the phone
    (kiss me thru the phone)
    See you later on..
    Kiss me thru the phone
    (kiss me thru the phone)
    See you when I get home

    She call my phone like
    (da da dadadada da da dadadada da da..)
    We on the phone like
    (da da dadadada da da dadadada da da..)
    We taking pics like
    (da da dadadada da da dadadada da da..)
    She dial my number like
    (da da dadadada da da dadadada da da..)

    Six seven eight triple nine eight two one two
    (678) 999-8212

    Number 7:

    “Yesterday” By The Beatles

    Yesterday,
    All my troubles seemed so far away,
    Now it looks as though they’re here to stay,
    Oh, I believe in yesterday.

    Number 6:

    Break on Through to the Other Side” by the Doors

    You know the day destroys the night
    Night divides the day
    Tried to run
    Tried to hide
    Break on through to the other side
    Break on through to the other side
    Break on through to the other side, yeah

    Number 5:

    “No Air” – By Jordan Sparks and Chris Brown

    [Jordin]
    If I should die before I wake
    It’s cause you took my breath away
    Losing you is like living in a world with no air, oh

    [Chris]
    I’m here alone, didn’t wanna leave
    My heart won’t move, it’s incomplete
    Wish there was a way that I can make you understand

    Number 4:

    Viva La Vida – By ColdPlay

    I used to rule the world
    Seas would rise when I gave the word
    Now in the morning I sleep alone
    Sweep the streets I used to own

    I used to roll the dice
    Feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes
    Listen as the crowd would sing
    “Now the old king is dead! Long live the king

    Number 3:

    “Only the Good Die Young” by Billy Joel

    They say there’s a heaven for those who will wait
    Some say it’s better but I say it ain’t
    I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints
    the Sinners are much more fun…

    you know that only the good die young
    oh woah baby
    i tell ya
    only the good die young,

    Number 2:

    “Stairway to Heaven” – by Led Zepplin

    (Ringtone is the song Intro)

    And my top ringtone for calling departed loved ones is…..

    “Help!” -by The Beatles

    Many possibilities for ringtone hooks in this song!

    Help, I need somebody,
    Help, not just anybody,
    Help, you know I need someone, help.

    While this was just for “phun” – don’t be surprised if you see a list like this marketed on the Internet by some ringtone company!

    If you want to add to this list – just add them to my comment section
