For AT&T customers, ringback tones requires a $0.99 monthly subscription; GoPhone from AT&T customers are charged a one time delivery fee of $1.00 per tone. These charges will appear on your wireless bill (taxes may apply). You can view your ringback tone purchases by visiting www.att.com/myapps or on your wireless bill under the Mobile Purchases and Downloads detail.

QHow do I select ringback tones?

Open the Ringback Tones app on your mobile device or open the Ringback Tones web site on your PC, browse the catalog, and select a title that you would like your callers to hear. (If you don't have the app on your phone, open http://rbtapp.att.com on your mobile browser, or go to http://rbt.att.com on your PC.) The app will open a new window where you can preview the ringback tone by clicking on the artwork associated with the track in the upper left hand corner. To purchase that track, click on the Buy button. If you have not already logged in to the service, the app will display a form where you can enter your cell phone number. Enter the cell phone number where you want the ringback tone to play when called. This is also the cell phone number that will be billed for the service. The service will send a PIN to this cell phone via text message. Once you have received the PIN, enter it in to the second text entry field and select the Verify button. This will complete the authentication and allow you to confirm your purchase. You can continue shopping for more tones, or you can set your new ringback tone as the default tone or assign it to a specific caller or group of callers.

QWhy are my callers not hearing the tone that I purchased?
