In October 2011 I moved to Montreal, Canada and within days I had fallen in love with STM*. That’s right, the Société de transport de Montréal! A few months later the STM introduced an audio signal to announce the closing of metro train doors – a feature standard on many subway systems but something new to the Montreal Metro system.
When I first heard the new signal (a reproduction of the sound made by MR-73 train’s power converter as the train leaves the station) last week I decided that it would make a great SMS ringtone for my iPhone.
As they say in Montreal**, il fait beau dans l’métro!
The downloads are formatted into MP3 and iPhone compatible file-types – just download the version appropriate to your device and install according to your handset manufactures instructions. The iPhone version is compatible with iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S handsets.
If you are using an iPhone all you need to do is download the iPhone version of the ringtone and drag the downloaded file into iTunes. With that done just sync the iPhone and you should be good to go.

* Please don’t tell my girlfriend, I doubt she’d be impressed.
** I’ve not actually heard anyone say this. Most people comment on the temperature!
