Naxos AudioBooks New Pride and Prejudice Alert Tone

Naxos AudioBooks Pride and Prejudice Ringtone (2013)

From the desk of Laurel Ann Nattress: 

Last month I reviewed the Naxos Audiobooks edition of Pride and Prejudice, read by Emilia Fox. It is my favorite audio edition of Jane Austen’s classic novel. I was thrilled to learn that they have also created in honor of this year’s bicentenary of publication a clever alert tone for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch of a select section of the recording.

Wouldn’t it be totally cool and so chic to have actress Emilia Fox as Elizabeth Bennet saying, “It is your turn to say something now, Mr. Darcy.” when you receive a new email or text message on your electronic device? Well, now you can.

It is only accessible within the iTunes store on your iOS device. Once it is downloaded, you can set your new tone as your default tone or assign it to a Contact. Why not try it?

Gentle readers, please bear with this Luddite who does not own a cell phone, iPod or iPad. If I make a mistake in the description or process to purchase, please forgive me. My computer and NOOK are as a techie as I get.

Here are the instructions:

Available from:

Apple Mobile App Store (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch)


You cannot purchase ringtones and alert tones from your computer, but you can purchase them using your iOS device with iOS 5 or later. You can purchase tones on iPad, iPhone (3GS or later), and iPod touch (4th generation or later).

To locate tones in iTunes on an iOS device:

  1. Tap the iTunes app.
  2. Tap Tones. If Tones is not visible, tap More > Tones.
  3. Browse for tones. Once you purchase a tone, a dialog is displayed. The dialog gives you an option to set your new tone as your default tone or assign it to a Contact.   If you don’t want to do anything with the tone just yet, simply tap Done.
  4. Tones purchased using your iOS devices are synced to your iTunes library when you connect your device to your computer. On an iPod touch or iPhone, you can find tones in Settings > Sounds. On an iPad, you can find tones in Settings > General > Sounds.

Have fun!

  1. I am not sure if i have an iOS device

    I would like them , to have us hear “dearest Loveliest Elizabeth”


  2. My favorite quote is not really good ringtone material. But I love it so. I use if for all manner of things….like when my cat knocked over the Christmas Tree. “Really, Mr. Collins, you puzzle me exceedingly!” I don’t know why I said that to the poor cat. His name isn’t Mr. Collins, it’s Mr. Wickham….


  3. “I am excessively diverted.” For emails or texts could be fun. Maybe a quote about Mrs. Bennett’s nerves or “I am extremely put-out” by Lady Catherine as a ring tone for someone you may dread talking to. :)


  4. I don’t have an ‘IOS,’ whatever that thing is (my ignorance is telling on me) and as I have had continuing difficulty in listening to audio books (I’m near deaf or so my wife says) and lastly I’m so intensely visual that I very much prefer reading the word. I’ll say one thing about NAXOS though…..The quality of their CD’s, especially in classical or fine music, is unparalleled so I can only imagine the quality of this audio book!


  5. Maybe a few Lady Cat quotes, like “Obstinate, headstrong girl!” or if it the sound was to notify about a new message, “I will not be interrupted.” But there are the classics less used, “Keep your breath to cool your porridge,” & “Those who do not complain are never pittied” or one of my favorites “It is very often nothing but our own vanity that deceives us.” Ooh, just too many to wonderful ones in the book to choose only one.


  6. “For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn?” or “You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” … I have an iOs device (which is the software that Apple devices run on – iPhone, iPad, iPods)


  7. “Follies and nonsense, whims and inconsistencies do divert me, I own, and I laugh at them whenever I can.”

    “The distance is nothing when one has a motive.”

    “My good opinion once lost is lost forever.”

    “To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love”

    –and all the other quotes already mentioned above… really, no quote from P&P would be bad! Thanks for arranging this.


  8. I hate to be too much of a traditionalist, but I love “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a great fortune must be in want of a wife.” Is that too long for a tone? Well, I like it anyway. I think it’s witty and sets the tone, if you will, for what is to come.


  9. “I beg your pardon madam for interrupting you but I was in hopes you might have got some good news from town, so I took the liberty of coming to ask.” –Mrs Hill. & or, “Obstinant headstrong girl.” Lady Catherine


  10. “I am the happiest creature in the world.” Short and sweet! However, hearing the “ardently” quote as a ring tone would be lovely, too!


  11. I am too new to PandP to know any quotes! But all the quotes posted here sound lovely! And I have this audio version of the book (thanks Laurel Ann!) and just actually started listening to it this week. Emilia Fox is great!
