    I need help installing the ringtones that play when someone calls your phone and they hear music istead of ring tones. Anyone got an App or set up directions?

    Serious Disapointment...

    I have Verizon's Ringback Tones. They control that in the network. As far as I know, there is no way to put that into a phone by itself. If you find a way, please post it. Ninety nine cents a month is allot to have a caller hear music instead of rings.

    I'm sick of hearing "Please enjoy the music while your party is reached. " Worst invention ever!

    Yes, its called Visual Voicemail For Your Phone | YouMail very good service for individual greetings for each call, also very good to ditch unwanted callers and stalkers, the best on the planet.

    Using the DROID you are obviously on Verizon (today anyway)... log into your VZW account and you can browse and setup your ringback tone(s) from there.

    As for the horrible song selection, that is your friends choice, if you don't like it, don't call them, make them call you. That has nothing to do with the phone, network, or an application.

    I personally love my setup for ringback tones... You can set it up like ringtones on your phone, so certain people hear certain songs... or you can set up a cycle of songs so you don't just have 1 to cycle through. You can even set it up so there is one ringback tone per day of the week. I found these options great, but a bit expensive for my taste (.99 per song of course). However, I chose one song (Cake - Never There), and I set the "Please enjoy the music while your party is reached" to be in Spanish instead of English..... keep in mind I don't speak Spanish... so I get a lot of hang up calls, it is a great way to weed out those who don't really want to talk to you lol.

    Changing Ringback Tones

    Manage your Ringback Tones at:
    www.vzw.com/rbt
    select "Manage" pulldown
    select "My Ringback Tones"
    Login

    The greeting at the start may be turned off or toggled between English or Spanish.

    Like another poster, I use jukeboxes to keep things fresh for my callers. You get a discount when you buy them versus buying them a la carte.

    Price of $0.99/month is less than another provider I used to have and the catalog is huge. I set it up to play a mooing cow for my wife, for example.. smart I might not be.. lol.

    Rock on!

    I just tried the VZN media site and picked and purchased the ringback tones. They never showed up on my DROID. I called VZN customer support and was told they do not support the DROID for ringback tones and I would have to use an app from market place!!
    Any help is appreciated!

    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.

    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.
