    I don't have my own Droid phone yet but my wife has a Droid 2... and she's driving me crazy. I already have the roaming sound and network lost sound turned off but every time she gets an incoming call the phone makes the 'Verizon Wireless' sound followed by the ringtone. Is there anywhere else to look to silence that sound?

    Does it say "DROID" followed by a bunch of electronic sounds?

    You're telling me that the phone itself actually says the words "verizon wireless"???

    Yes, it says "Verizon Wireless" in a female voice.

    Hmm. Wish i had an answer. Only time i have ever seen something like this is if the user has an app installed. I forget what that type of app is called though :thinking:

    I searched through every stock ringtone and didn't see one with a female voice saying "verizon wireless." I'll keep checking, though.

    Try setting a song you've transferred onto your phone as the new ringtone. See if that makes any difference.

    Go through her app list. Is there anything that has to do with caller or dialer?

    Im researching for this issue. Seems i did hear it once before and it was some silly app.

    I'll check her app list. I've changed to different ringtones and it doesn't change anything.

    Thanks everyone for the help so far.

    There is a setting somewhere that will "Announce the Caller Name"
    Don't remember where - but sounds like CITY ID Identifying it, then that setting speaking it.

    Try Settings > Call Settings > Caller ID Readout > Ring Only.

    That's the way it was already set. I tried all the other options in there to see if it would change and it didn't

    Settings>Personal> Factory Reset

    If that doesn't fix it, time to call/visit Verizon.

    If it's THAT big of an issue, Redflea is right. My phone is on vibrate 80% of the time anyways.

    well i dont blame the OP .... i wouldnt want to hear "verizon wireless" before somebody calls me first time ive ever heard of that problem... take it in the vzw store and have them look at it and if not they should switch your phone with a new one

    I had that same problem, it would say "verizon wireless" when I called someone and turned off the phone (or lost service). I just exchanged my phone yesterday (for a diffrent issue) and this one is not doing it (thank god)

    My wife's Droid2 did the exact same thing. Mine does not. Her phone was purchased from a Verizon Retail store... mine was a warranty replacement for a Droid1.

    Go to Settings->Sound->Roaming Tone

    Make sure this option is unchecked... no more creepy Verizon Lady announcing your phone calls. ;) She was about to go insane!

    I think he said he already had turned that off.

    Nah, I just stumbled upon this thread with the same problem, and turning that option off fixed it. Uncheck roaming tone under sound options.

    Thanks!

    Thank you so much for this information!!!! I was wondering why that creepy lady spoke before each of my received calls! It was so annoying!
