The ringtones available include the show's trademark chants; including "Jer-ry, Jer-ry, Jer-ry," which the crowd uses to cheer their ring master on, "Steve! Steve! Steve," used by the crowd when the show's director of security breaks up frequent brawls, and of course Springer's heart-warming closing, "Take care of Yourself and Each Other." Springer says, "This is great! Now everytime your phone rings, your friends will think you are coming on the show. You did what? With who?" In addition to the ringtones, fans can also choose cell phone wallpapers from three different show logos. All downloads will be available for a small, one-time fee.
