Is it saying "Verizon Wireless" + playing your ringtone? The only setting I can think of that would do something like that is Sound & Display Settings > Call connect. However it onely applies to outgoing calls, and the default sound is not "Verizon Wireless". The other setting is in Call Settings > Caller ID Readout. However, that setting should only apply to incoming calls. Which begs the question, do you have any 3rd party apps installed that could be causing this?
This one really doesn't make sense. There aren't any settings, that I can find or think of, that would cause it to do this. I'm not sure where you bought your phone, but was it definitely a brand new, and never turned on before? I've played with this phone extensively and have never seen any setting that would do that. That said, I would probably do a hard reset, and try again. Out of curiosity, what does it say for "System Information" in the settings > about screen?
menu>settings>sound and display> (turn off ) ROAMING TONE!
Enjoy your new phone and have a nice day
This is the answer! I've found you have to be very careful what you allow/don't allow in all the options available on an X. It's easy to activate something that takes "forever" to find again to deactivate. Am getting lots of practice with that.
This still seems to be the default setting - new Droid Razr Maxx HD purchased in April 2013 has the same default behavior. Unticking the "Roaming" box as noted above does appear to turn it off. Thanks!
Hi Jvanwinkle. I can help you with this issue. FYI - I have an LG G3 (after the April 2015 software update). From your Verizon phone, go to Settings, Sounds & Notification, Sound Effects, then uncheck "Sound When Roaming." This will fix that obnoxious "Verizon Wireless" announcement from your phone. Hope this helped!
