A German man is facing up to six months in prison for having a speech by Adolf Hitler as his mobile phone ring tone, the Daily Telegraph reported Wednesday.


According to the British daily, the 54-year-old man had the speech - in which the Nazi leader pledged the "destruction of world Jewry" if Germany was "dragged" into war - programmed into his Nokia phone.


The report said passengers aboard a train in Hamburg heard the ring tone several times and reported him to police, who seized him at the end of his journey.


Once he was in custody, police also found swastika stickers and photos of Hitler on the telephone with the words "The greatest commander of all time".


He was charged with violating the German constitution, which expressly prohibits public displays of the Nazis and all their works, the Telegraph reported.
