I've been trying to download a hello tune, based on the information given in the website of Airtel, by calling a direct no. [protected]. I've tried it several times, it asks for options from the menu. If they've mentioned that this is a direct call no. Why is it so that they are charging people @6 INR per min and that too asking for questions and options from the main menu. Ideally a direct no. Shouldn't be asking so many questions and should directly start downloading the tunes. But this is not the case here and this according to me is fooling public. If they've mentioned in their site that this is the direct call no. then it shouldn't be asking for all the menu options, as listening to all the songs in the list is very costly (@6 Rs./min).

Thanks,
Manu.

    First of all it is pretty expensive and then when i wanted to check with airtel customer service regarding this caller tune issue and the deduction from my balance, they could not give me any proper answer and the srvice that the agent gave me was ridiculous and he was rude and when i asked for a supervisor he did not transfer the call and said that they were busy and that i would receive a call back within an hour but nothing hapened, its just damnnnnnnnn ridiculous.I have thus decided that i would de activate this stupid service.

    Right now the problem with my Airtel prepaid connection is that am not receiving incoming calls although i have sufficient balance and validity. I have been outside my local cicle for over 2 months. Everything was working fine. But after I changed my hellotune, things started going wrong. Its been 3 days since. I'm able to make outgoing calls and sms'.

    Customer Care people say that there isn't any fault in my number. They just have that same old solution of manually selecting the network. But that is of no help. The result is I unsubscribed from the service although I had 10 days left of the subscription.

    Anybody out there knows whats happening?

    Hi,
    I am a Airtel costumer trying to serch for my favourite hellotune through net but i think airtel only spends on advertisement and dosen't update or maintain a range of songs for hello tunes. I suggest you peoples should increase you database size for hellotunes so that we people would be satisfy.

    Regards
    Sumit

    See hello tunes charges for call 543211 is quit ok. But the chatge for song which is RS15 and Monthlly RS30 is quitlly on heigher side. You should provide the facility where customer can change the hello tune by using SMS code here what happen when we call to perticular number for hello tune then the computerised system will tell that

    For sure Airtel's Customer Care Service is pathetic.
    Even if you will ask retailers about some scheme going on, they will instead ask you to check with the Customer Care as even they would choose to avoid calling such useless customer service!

    My issue here is that I tried choosing a song from Airtel's database provided on its website. The instructions on the search page tells you to type SET CODE and to send it at 543211.
    When you do that, you get a message saying that there is no song matching your request!!
    If you call C.C. you'll get the response that there was technical problem from your side because you were supposed to type SET <CODE>.
    Which has not been mentioned on that webpage!
    So that means you are not supposed to rely on the contents of the webpage of World's No.1 service provider!
    Fair enough to STEAL 3 rupees from 'n' number of people and fill pockets!

    Before this incidence, even I trusted Airtel but not anymore...
