    Default Annoying music plays over and over while dialing?

    I just upgraded from an S3 to an S4 and started using Android 4.3.

    I get this really annoying music snippet playing over and over while my phone is dialing a number. Is this some new feature I can turn off???

    Are you talking about the thing that sounds like a drop of water while you're tapping keys on the keypad? If so, then in the Phone app, tap the Menu button, then Call settings > Ringtones and keypad tones, and uncheck Dialing keypad tone. But if it's playing music while the phone you dialed is ringing, then I don't know.

    No it's some wierd little harp music thing, played while the phone I dialed was ringing. It drowned out the rings, and any message. Now it's stopped. Strange.

    It sounds like maybe an app's notification sound. The eBay app notification sounds just like a little harp strum.

    Do you hear it for every different number you dial? If it's just a few, it might be a ringback tone.

    No, this played continuously over and over throughout the ringing. One time it rang 10 times, and played throughout. I know that these days you can pay your carrier to play music to people who call you during the ring (is that "ringback tone"?), and at first I thought that was it, but then I tried ringing my own land line and got the same thing.

    Started playing when the ringing started, played throughout, stopped when I hung up. Anyway it's gone for now. Even numbers that were doing it yesterday are not doing it any longer. So strange.

    It sounds like a ringback tone. Is it only when you call a certain number? A ringback tone is music you set to play for someone who is calling you instead of the default Erhhh....erhhhh....erhhhhh when you call a number.
    I hope I explained it well enough.
