I'm not asking to change the ringtone for contacts (what plays when they call me). Now am I asking how to change the outgoing ringtone--so that when people call me they hear a custom ringtone while waiting for me to pickup.

I just want to change the sound when I place a call and it rings while waiting for the other party to pickup. I'm using CyanogenMod 7 on a rooted T-Mobile MyTouch 4G. The reason I want to do this is that the ringing noise is quite loud. If I have the Phone Call Volume all the way up, so I can clearly hear people on the line, then the ringing is loud enough to be painful. If I have it turned down so the ringing noise isn't overpowering, I can't hear people on the line after they pick up--and don't want to have to turn the volume up and down every time I place a call.

(I did consider using Tasker to change the Phone Call volume when ringing and when the other person picks up, but I didn't see the right states/events to be able to do that).

Is there a way to change what ringtone is used, so I could just pick a quieter tone?

I believe this is typically determined by the network switches involved, not by the handset (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ringback_tone has a bit of explanation) –  eldarerathis Nov 19 '12 at 20:46

Music, what played at line hold/conference waiting are set by operator, and at most cases it not allowed to change it (except corporate virtual phonebox).
Music, what caller hear, when waiting for connect, can be changed by operator, but it usualy costs money for people, whom you call.
You can only decrease call volume.
