    I make most of my calls through Google voice so i'm not often dialing through verizon. I just noticed when i make a call thru VZ i get music while i wait for the phone to connect. Never had this before, did verizon make a change?
    I haven't downloaded any apps lately.
    Is there a way to turn this off?

    Thx

    Fred

    This depends on who you're calling and if they have a ring back tone on their number.

    It's the person i'm calling??
    it never even rang, i dialed the number and immediately got a msg 'enjoy while we connect your call' and went into the music until the party answered...
    I didn't know that's the way it worked.

    Yeah, it plays music instead of ringing.its on their end and they pay a fee for it. They get to choose the music. Not something I'd pay for but,?

    Thank you all for answering. Sorry for the dumb question, I didn't even know this was an option.

    I bet this has been available for years.

    It's called a ring back tone.
