Verizon Wireless announced today it is the first national carrier to offer Ringback Tones - short clips of real music that replace the standard ring callers hear when they call the phone of a Ringback Tone subscriber. The service is available now for customers in Sacramento and southern California, with national availability planned for mid-2005. Customers can choose from an initial catalog of more than 2,200 songs in 13 different music genres. Set-up options include different ringback tones for different callers based on the Caller ID, Group List or the time of day. The service is priced at 99 cents per month, plus $1.99 annually for each tone.
