Straight Talk is a prepaid cell-phone service. There are no monthly bills, credit checks, activation fees or contracts associated with this pay-as-you-go service. Plans include 30 days of service with an optional text messaging and Web access service. Customize your Straight Talk phone by installing a ringback tone. Ringback tones can be purchased and downloaded from Straight Talk's website. Once downloaded, you can change the features on your phone, so whenever anyone calls your cell-phone number, they hear the downloaded ringback tone instead of a dialing tone.

Type your phone number into Straight Talk's Mobile Web website. Click on "Submit" when you're done.

Browse the ringback tones available for download. You can preview the ringback tones by pressing the "Preview" button. Press "Purchase" to buy the ringback tone. Once you purchase the ringback tone, it will be sent to your phone as a text message.

Open the text message by pressing the "Messaging" button on your phone. It can be identified as the button with an envelope icon.

Press "Save" to save the ringback tone. It will be saved in your phone's "Gallery."

Press the "Menu" button and then select "Options."

Select "Customize" and then "Ringing tone." Browse through the ringback tones saved on the phone by pressing the up or down arrows on the keypad.

Press "Apply" to apply the ringback tone to your phone's settings.
