No point in setting Airtel caller tunes

I switched to Airtel from Idea a few months back because Idea had practically no coverage in my office area. I keep getting messages - up to three a day - from Airtel about different things. Rate plans to caller tunes to SMS packages.

One such message had an offer to set your caller tune to songs from Orange. I love all the songs of this film and thought I should set my caller tune to 'Rooba Rooba'. So I called the number mentioned in the SMS and went through the voice recognition based menu to eventually set the song as my caller tune. They charged Rs. 15 for the tune and Rs. 30 to subscribe to the service for a month. Ok, I thought. I got an SMS confirming my selection.

I called my phone from another phone to see how it sounded. I quickly realized that the whole purpose was defeated. First, a message is played where they tell you about the service and how you can copy the dialer tone and then how much it costs you. I can bet that most people would answer the phone before the song starts! WTF?

Rather than subject my callers to this torture, I promptly unsubscribed from the service. I have yet to figure out what happened to the Rs. 45 that was debited to my account.

While on the topic of phone tones, have you tried setting a ringtone other than the predefined ones on your iPhone? Well, I tried and they sound really bad. First, I tried using Garage Band and it was terrible. I looked up the Internet for solutions and found some software that was supposed to do a good job. I paid $20 and bought iSkysoft's iPhone Ringtone maker.

I tried making a ringtone from Rooba Rooba and again, it sounded really bad. If I played the same song using the same iPhone using the iPod app, it plays really well. Why then can it not play well for a ring tone???

Hello, I'm Kamal from Hyderabad, India. I have been on dialysis for the last 13 years, six of them on PD, the rest on hemo. I have been on daily nocturnal home hemodialysis for the last four and half years. I can do pretty much everything myself. I love to travel and do short weekend trips or longer trips to places which have dialysis centers. Goa in India is a personal favorite. It is a great holiday destination and has two very good dialysis centers.
