    Note: Buy ringtones through the Verizon Tones app on your Android® or iOS device.

    Ringback Tones aren't downloaded to your phone. Instead, the Ringback Tone is played by our network to your callers before you answer the call or the caller is diverted to voicemail. The person calling you hears the Ringback Tone.

    Note: Get Ringback Tones at the Media Store.



  2. Ringback Tones replace the standard ringing sound for your family and friends to hear when they call you. Choose a song or clip for your callers to hear before you pick up a call or they're sent to voicemail.



  3. Over 90,000 ringtones and Ringback Tones are available in a wide variety of genres. If you can't find a title by genre, try searching by artist name or song title. Playlists are also available to purchase a collection of Ringback Tones at a discounted cost.
