    Just thinking about my past phones (LG Keybo and Nokia N8), they all had narrator ringtones which a lady would say "call from _____".
    And if it's from an unknown number, the lady would just call out the numbers, say "call from 123456789 (example number)

    I think this is a major feature that is missing in BlackBerry. I have extensively used the narrator ringtones on my past phones.

    If you are concerned about privacy, you could have a setting that just tells you the initials of the contact. Even better, you could have a setting in the contacts menu to customize the name the narrator says in the phone call ringtone.

    This would eliminate the need for a custom ringtone.

    While my past phones only had this feature for phone calls, I'm sure it could be easily used for bbm, texts, email, fb, and other apps as well.

    I hope they bring out those famous corporate ring tones we had in the height of BlackBerry. The Bold, etc. There were tons of ring tones made from a famous guy. Ring tones made with love and passion. The notification alerts, etc. I miss that.

    Now, with BlackBerry 10 there are just a few strange ones. I want original made all new BlackBerry ringtones!!!!

    Dear Mr. Chen. If read this: please hire the founder of the ringtones from 2007-2011!!!! He was bestest. We care about the little details.

    So when my passport or Classic lies on the table and rings, I need a typical BlackBerry ringtone/ notification alert.

    I have a soft spot in my heart for those old notifications. Especially Lightspeed. I also used Sonar and Crystal a lot. I tried downloading a set of them, but the recordings are all bad. The sound quality isn't good and they clip off the end of the notification. However, I'm using a notification on my M8 that sounds almost exactly like Crystal. It makes me happy .
