One of the interesting things about globalization is that, today, you see cell phones everywhere--especially in the Third World. And, just like in the US, ringtones can be about as annoying. For example, when I was in Honduras, I thought I had heard enough of Daddy Yankee's "Rompe" on the radio and in the clubs, until I started hearing it as a ringtone featured in Telomodo's package. Ringtones are the rage in Iraq as well, only there, ringtones aren't just annoying, they can be downright deadly, especially in a hotly-contested city such as Kirkuk.
