Ringtones, remember them?

What ever happened to those tunes that rang from people's phones? People really used to take time to customize their ringtones back in the days of the dumbphone. To be honest, I never really like ringtones (I thought they were really disruptive and annoying) but now that they're gone, I kinda miss them. Since the rise of the smartphone, all I hear is the Samsung ringtone, some carrier ringtone and stock sounds in Android and iOS. 90% of the time though, I don't hear anything at all, since most people's phones are on silent mode, now. Maybe it's just where I am, but do you think that ringtones are disappearing, and do people care about them anymore?
