WALNUT CREEK, CA — Verizon Wireless has the perfect presents for customers looking to get into the spirit of the season with a wide variety of holiday music available for their wireless phones. This season, Verizon Wireless has created Holiday Playlists and Holiday Jukeboxes to help customers find the perfect ringtones and ringback tones to spread holiday cheer.

Holiday Playlists, which are available in the Featured category in VZW Tones on Verizon Wireless phones and online at Verizon Wireless’ Media Store (http://mediastore.verizonwireless.com), offer a variety of tones to get even the biggest grinch into a festive mood. With choices ranging from Disney Holiday favorites and Traditional Holiday classics to Country Holiday hits, these ringtones and ringback tones let customers personalize their phones for the holiday season.

Verizon Wireless is featuring different Holiday Playlists over the next few weeks, offering a variety of ringtone and ringback tone purchase options, including:

  • Holiday Hits
  • Traditional Holiday
  • Latin Holiday
  • Country Holiday
  • R&B Holiday
  • Romantic Holiday
  • Stocking Stuffers
  • Metal Holiday
  • Kids Holiday
  • Disney Holiday
  • Animal Holiday
  • Best of 2008
  • New Years Party Hits
  • Latin Fiesta
  • Club Hits ’08
  • New Year’s Resolutions
  • Motown Holiday
  • Winter Wonderland
  • South Park Christmas
  • Nickelodeon Holiday
  • New Age Christmas
  • Stocking Stuffers – Latin

For the first time, Verizon Wireless customers can also select from pre-programmed ringback tone holiday-themed Jukeboxes that contain three, five or seven ringback tones of favorite holiday titles. The Holiday Jukeboxes are available in the VZW Tones section on Verizon Wireless phones and online in the Verizon Wireless Media Store at a discounted price (compared to purchasing them individually). These holiday ringback tones can be saved immediately as a default Jukebox and will play a different ringback in the Jukebox each time someone calls, spreading holiday cheer to friends and family this season.

Verizon Wireless has a proven track record of leadership in mobile music – beginning in 2004, Verizon Wireless was the first national wireless company to offer ringback tones. Since then, the company has introduced multiple unique artist relationships, exclusive music services and devices, and its flagship subscription-based music service – V CAST Music with Rhapsody – which allows customers to purchase and download the vast majority of their full-track music to their PCs without digital rights management (DRM) restrictions.
