Windows Phone 7: No Custom Ringtones – Does it matter?

We have some somewhat disappointing news to bring you now, as it has been reported that Windows Phone 7 handsets will ship without the ability to set a custom ringtone. We have a video to show you evidence of this.

As reported from Engadget, a hands-on video of the upcoming HTC Surround has surfaced over at PocketNow, in which they specifcally guide users through the various default ringtones available on the handset.

However, after watching the video,you may be surprised to hear that there isn’t an option to set a custom ringtone, so if you plan to buy one at launch, you’ll have to make use of one of the preset tones.

This could be a deal breaker for some of you, especially to those who would like to at least have the option to add their favorite 80s track on their smartphone.

What are your thoughts on this? Is this a major issue for you or not?
