    Does anyone else not like this feature? Before my phone starts ringing whether it be incoming or outgoing calls a voice says "Verizon Wireless" rather loudly. This isn't a huge deal when making a call, but it is super annoying when i am receiving one. How do I turn this off? Can i turn this off? I have looked every where it should be in the setting, and everywhere it shouldn't be as well. I have called Motorola and VZW, no one had any idea how to turn it off. HELP.

    Why does a womans voice say "verizon wireless" every time i make a call?

    Or right before an incoming call? Very annoying. It just started last night

    I never had that issue, pretty weird. Sorry I can't help but I posted because I'm interested in what this phenomenon is.

    No I'm at my house. It just seems to be a "piss me off" thing

    Shot in the dark here, butcheck that there's a ringtone selected. I've never had your problem, but there's a default ringtone that is used if the phone somehow loses your selection.

    Pretty sure the solution is to goto Settings > Call Settings > Caller ID Readout - and change it to Ring Only (rather than caller id - which is announcing its a verizon call)

    Settings

    kgmankin, go to setting> Sound and Display> and un-check Network lost tone and Roaming Tone

    and it will turn off "Verizon Wireless"
