Customers can browse through and choose from classic holiday favorites, goofy jingles and newly released covers by their favorite pop artists.

Verizon Wireless customers can surround themselves with a little extra holiday cheer by selecting the perfect holiday-themed ring tone to play on their wireless phones for any festive occasion.
