Ringback tones are heard by callers while they wait for calls to be answered. The sound lets the caller know that the call has connected and is ringing for the receiving party. The ringback tone is not synchronized with the ringing heard by the call recipient. Ringback tones are usually hosted on a phone company switch and transmitted in real time.
