    Ringback tones don't "Show Up" on your phone. They are only heard or used when someone calls you. That's what they hear instead of a 'ring' on the phone. I have had them for two years, and on my Droid since I got it in November.... Everytime someone calls me they hear one of three 'James Brown' Classics! There is nothing on my phone to indicate I have them, I manage or change them over the internet.

    If you don't mind me asking, how do you manage them over the internet? I used to be able to do it on my last phone thru the Verizon Media Store.

    Any help is appreciated!
    Probably thought you were talking about actual ringtones...

    Go to Verizonwireless.com and sign up for online management of your wireless account. You can pay your bill there, check your usage, make changes to your account, and manage your Ringback Tones.....

    I'm pretty sure that you can change the settings somewhere to get rid of that... I'll look into it and get back to you on this.

    Managing Ringbacks & Caller Greeting

    Chev64,

    Ringback tones are not downloaded to your phone. They reside in the network where they are played back to callers. The $0.99 is undoubtedly to pay for all those media servers. So... the only place to get them is VZW. On my old phone I could manage them via the VZW Tones application, but it doesn't appear to be available on the Droid. The only place on the phone I found is the mobile browser store (s.vzw.com/home). But, in my opinion, the VZW mediastore (www.vzw.com/mediastore) on the web is a much better experience.

    1. Navigate to www.vzw.com/mediastore
    2. Select a pulldown at the top of the page that says "Manage"
    3. Select "Ringback Tones" from the Manage menu
    4. Manage your ringbacks from there.

    Note to an earlier poster, you can turn off your caller greeting (i.e. "Please wait while your party is reached") at the top right of the manage ringbacks page. Look carefully -- the button is grayed out because they must not expect most people to use it.


    Happy Ringbacking.

    Visual Voicemail as replacement for Ringbacks??

    DJ Smooth suggested Visual Voicemail by YouMail above. I just checked it out and am not following...

    Visual Voicemail is from Verizon -- and good product, but not a replacement for Ringback Tones as far as I can tell...
    Calling Features: Visual Voice Mail

    YouMail is a voicemail product, not a ringback tone product.
