How can I get a sensible ringtone for my Satio, wihtout running into loads of scam sites, please? I really want Apache, or something similar, but can't work out how to do it - getting senile, I'm afraid. Sure it must be very easy - help, please?

Thankyou Lazarus. I know you meant to help, but your instructions caused me some difficulty. It wiped off my tool bar, and replaced it with some grotty toolbar which wanted me to sign up for all sorts of unwanted programs. I had to do a system restore to get rid of it. Think I will have to find another way of getting my Apache ringtone
