      Unfortunately, this personalized ring tone is only available to Sprint and Nextel customers, who can set it up as Ringers (ringtones) or Call Tones (ringback tones) by downloading it from their phones. Sprint will also begin streaming the first two videos from Chingy’s album, Hoodstar, "Pullin’ Me Back" and "Dem Jeans," as well as an exclusive interview Chingy did with one of Sprint’s VJ’s on Channel 33 or Channel 35 on Sprint TV, which is available on Sprint Power Vision phones.

      With the success of his latest single, "Dem Jeans", Chingy is taking it a step further. The young emcee has recorded 123 personalized ringtones using the hook "Damn Girl, how’d you get all that in Dem Jeans?" from the single, but replacing "Girl" with 123 different female names. Chingy laid down each hook in the studio using names like Jalisa, Lakeisha, Mariah, Oprah, Beyonce and others.
