    well i am pretty new to the blackberry scene
    i just got my first one not too long ago, like a week?
    and i had to start a new plan with verizon, and searching on the verizon website i stumbled upon ringback tones
    but it said i had to go through the "get it now" thing on my phone, but i cannot find this.
    so if anyone knows how to get ringbacktones with the blackberry 8330 for verizon please let me know, because this is a pretty neat feature and i would really like to use it

    (also sorry if this is already answered or talked about, i searched the forums but found no answer that worked)

    I am not sure about this, but you may have better luck if you post in the Verizon wireless section.

    Log in to your acct via the vzw website. You can download and activate your rbt there.

    well when i try to do it online from my computer it tells me that the model phone i have doesnt support buying media online and that i have to get to it by going to my media section on the phone and going to get it now and it will take me there, but i dont seem to have anything like that

    I have ringback tones on my device. The only way to do this is via the website. There is no get it now on these devices. Under your account there should be a "manage rbt's" section. Did you look there?

    I also have the curve. I know this can be done, and it is *****ng me off that I can't solve your issue. It is not that the model isn't compatible!! Lol - I would almost let you call my phone just to prove it works!

    So you have your device set as the 8330, your account is paid to date, and you have a data plan? And the esn is clear.. Basically all is good?

    I also have a ringback tone on my curve however it was set-up when I had another phone. With the bb being the only phone it may not be available to you. I have a coworker who just opened a new account with a bb and he cant get it either.

    Go to manage my ringback tones. You can set up your default tone, different tones for different callers, etc.
