BEDMINSTER, NJ — Can't get enough of the holiday spirit? With holiday ring tones, Verizon Wireless offers one more way to celebrate. The nation's largest wireless provider offers everyone's favorite holiday tunes to add festive sounds to any Get It NowSM-enabled phone.

With several ring tone providers to choose from, available in the getTONES shopping aisle, customers can personalize their wireless phone with a different ring tone for each family member and friend. Verizon Wireless offers the following suggestions for making the most out of holiday tunes:

Parents - It's Mom or Dad calling when MyTonz's versions of "Joy to the World" or "Jingle Bells" play out loud.

Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles - Personalize their ring with classic songs such as Modtones' versions of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" or "Chanukah O Chanukah."

Siblings - Upbeat songs like Modtones' version of "The Dreidel Song" or MIDIRingTones' version of "Jingle Bell Rock" can announce a call from a sibling.

Nieces and Nephews - Find out what's new in a young relative's life when Modtones' version of "Frosty the Snowman" or "Christmas Time is Here (from A Charlie Brown Christmas)" plays.

A Grumpy Friend - Don't pick up the phone when it plays Modtones' version of "You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch."

New Year's Eve Date - Know it's that special someone calling when Ringster's version of "All I Want Is You This Christmas" by *NSYNC or MyTonz's version of "Auld Lang Syne."
