NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Donald Trump is reported set to announce the deal that could put his voice on your cell phone.

According to the New York Post, real estate and casino mogul Trump, who is already star of the hit reality series "The Apprentice," is about to announce a deal with Warner Music Group to launch Trump Mobile. Products will include ringtones, video ringtones and Trump wallpaper for cell phone screens.

The paper reports that customers will be able to have Trump's voice as their ringtone, with the Donald saying, "Why not answer your phone, you could be missing out on some really big business" and "You're getting a phone call and, believe me, it better be important. I have no time for small talk and neither do you."

The deal, with Warner's Rhino Entertainment label, will launch Monday on T-Mobile, according to the paper, followed by releases on other wireless carriers over the next couple of weeks. Other carriers on board are Cingular, Verizon Wireless and Sprint Nextel, the paper says.

"When Donald Trump's voice is coming out of your cell phone, everyone around you will know you mean business," Trump said in a statement to the paper. "With Trump Mobile personalization products, people can finally get some valuable advice while their phones are ringing."
