    So has anyone been using this I signed up last night and it is not worth the money in my opinion. If you dont know what ring back tones are they are when you call someone who has verizon instead of hearing the dial tone sound when calling someone you can have it play music for people. If anyone would like to hear what it sounds like I can give you my cell number and you can call me Pm me. I just have the basic classical verizon default. You have to do it tonight though because I am going to cancel it tommorow I just wanted to try it and see how it was. So like I said if you want to hear it PM me and I can give you my number to try it out. Or click here to email me

    Ryan,
    I've tried the normal Verizon ringback tone myself, there's no monthly fee for me since I have an IN Texting package, but I wouldn't pay $1.99 for a ringback tone.
    My friend is bought a ringbacktone...I mean it is cool, but not worth it IMO.
    We should exchange phone numbers anyways to TXT ;)

    You can add the message that says, "please enjoy the music while your party is being reached..." to avoid confusion.

    It's getting pretty popular here in Southern Cali. Between VZW and T-Mobile customers, it is starting to really catch on especially with the youth.

    I must admit I am starting to like it. I have three different ones assigned to different people I know. A lot of the guys at work (young and old) are having fun with it too.

    I did some research on ringbacks, and gotta say it's a brilliant idea.

    BusinessWeek has an article on them here

    Because the ringback is on the the wireless carrier's server, there is no chance of song piracy. Additionally, the day might come when you call a buddy, get hooked on his ringback, press "one" to order, and the mp3 gets downloaded to your phone while your monthly bill gets nicked for $1 or so. As you can see, music companies will love ringbacks.

    Ringbacks can work on land lines too, so in the not too distant future you'll hear a company jingle in lieu of a standard ring when you phone a business.

    This is good and all but for those people who dont want to pay for addition ring back tones the carrier needs to get something other than classical. They need to give the customers a few choices for the basic service. Because I will tell you the classical Verizon has is nasty sounding.
