Extra Loud Ring Tone Required
I purchased a Samsung Sync cell phone for my 88 year old uncle but he has trouble hearing the phone ring even at the highest setting.
 
Is there a ring tone I can get and install on his phone to assist him with hearing the phone ring ?  Are there any other items I can get for him to help him enjoy the cell phone at his advanced age ?  The phone is difficult for him to use sometimes and he gets frustrated with it but enjoys the opportunity to talk with his family and friends when he wants to.
 
Thanks for your time.
Jerry

If you are familar with a computer, there is a free program called Audacity. You may take any song and amplify it. Then there is another program called Lame (Downloaded from the same site) this will allow you to take the ringtone you have created and convert it to an MP3. You may then put the created ringtone onto the phone via USB or Bluetooth. It is a much simplier process than it sounds like it is. They have it for all popular OS. This is the link for Windows.
