Default ringtones that sound like actual ringing would be a big win. Those are much, much less annoying than some terrible piece of cheap jingle music.

Four words for you:

Doctor Who Theme Song

:)

Seriously, those of us who work on open floors NEED to have an unique phone ring. Especially if you are as neurotic as I am about people that let their phone ringing ad infinitum... don't be that person!...

This is actually one of the 'killer applications' of having a smart watch, (in my case a pebble), when my phone rings my watch vibrates so I know it's my phone.

Righto. This is a major hassle at trade fairs where (a) everybody seems to have the same ring tone, and (b) the general noise level can be so high that it is difficult to notice your phone ringing if it doesn't have direct skin contact.

I'd just leave it on vibrate. If I'm at a trade show, why would I want to waste my time there on the phone[1]? If I miss it; I miss it.

[1]One thing I really dislike with phones these days is the "oh no, they didn't answer; what's wrong" reaction you tend to get versus the "oh, they're not home right now" from when numbers were a place, not a person. I also dislike how there's always that sense of urgency with phones as if the interruption is all of a sudden instantly more important than anything else you might be doing. But whatever, I'm a grumpy oddball :P .
