Death Proof

Other mistake: When Mike rams up the backside of the challenger, the girl driving the car loses control and turns hard towards the left, the front tires aren't pointing forward down the road so there was no way she would have recovered from this. In the following shot after her closeup she's driving straight. (01:33:40)

Deliberate mistake: At the end of the movie, where the girls chase stuntman Mike, they drive the upper dusty road. When their car is shown front outside angle, there's a lot of dust rising from the camera crew's car. But when the camera angle gets into their car and shoots strait ahead - the dust is all gone, the air is perfectly clear.

Question: When Abby is in the store, Lee calls her. What is Abby's ringtone? It sounds familiar, but I can't place it.
