We are not playing any extra tones.  Completing the call in a timely fashion reassures the caller.

Are you playing a tone today prior to ring back?  Other than off-hook comfort noise, what else is there that would reassure the caller?

It makes me wonder if there is a forgotten about tone that should be played 
while things are occurring but not ringing. Silence just makes me think 
something is wrong, and if ringing is illegal, what do we play to indicate 
to the caller that "Hey, we're working here, we know what you dialed, and 
we're trying to make it happen, but it isn't getting through yet, hold on." 

Who knows if there is a standards-based tone or sound you play to indicate 
progress but not completion to ringing?
