So, wondering where to get free stuff for your mobile phone? You know, like ringtones, games, wallpapers, etc, without spending a dime?
I've been wondering about that myself and it's hard to find a website that caters to different mobile phones. Usually, a mobile phone website has a niche like iPhone stuff, Android stuff, Symbian, etc. Free wallpapers are easier to find though, because Google Image Search has loads of them. As to copyright issues, I don't think the makers would be suing you if you just put it as a wallpaper on your phone considering that it's probably covered under the free use clause (you can use it just as long as its for personal use). iPhone wallpapers are a bit hard to come by though. You can't exactly just copy and paste iPhone wallpapers, it has to be an image size of 320x480 or you'll get black borders. eMobilez has free iPhone wallpapers for you as well as FreeiPhoneStuff.info.
eMobilez also has some free mobile games for different mobile platforms. Mostly it's Java applications for lower end models but there's some iPhone games that I haven't tried yet. Hopefully, these games are legit. Getjar.com also has free java games and you can download it directly on your mobile phone through their wap site.
Ringtones are also harder to find as they're more strict with copyright. You can make one yourself though by recording your favorite song or with some free to use software, you can make your own MP3 ringtones.
In this age of commercialism, free stuff is not that hard to come by, thanks to the Internet.
