On a Moto phone, you edit the entry in the address book to select a
different ringtone than the default one.

Default Sender Customized Ring Tones

What does it take to select a custom ring tone that you can 'send' to
someone you call?

An individual did this to me on a couple of occasions. The effect wasn't
quite what he expected. Since everyone has downloaded some cutesy ring
tone, I picked a rather peculiar sounding one so when my phone goes off
in a crowded area, I know its mine. So, when this guy calls and my phone
plays his ringtone, I figure it must be someone else's.

I disabled the Ringer ID feature on my phone (a RAZR) but I can't recall
ever seeing something about how to send a custom ring tone attached to
my calls to another device.

That's how I can set a ringtone for my own phone.

My question is: can a ringtone be specified by the caller?

Oh, sorry... No, ringtone choices are the sole realm of the person
you're calling. Their phone, their service, their choice.

I can think of one possible mechanism:

My new LG phone has the ability to maintain a "name card" that you can send to
another user as a text message. In effect it becomes an entry in the
recipient's address book. Maybe your phone is (or was) set to accept such
entries and incorporate them automatically. On my (Verizon CDMA) phone a
ringtone isn't one of the fields you can include in a name card, but that may
be different on your phone and/or that of the sender.

Hmm. My RAZR has some "MMS Templates" which include animated graphics
and audio clips to which text messages can be appended.
