Airtel – WTH are you Thinking ?
I don’t know whether its because of some idiot in the company taking bad decision or Airtel been pushed to do things like this. But surely , the company has taken a path which is sure to raise question and annoy people in new , improved , different manner.
Airtel today has added its hello tune Advertising before each Hello Tune Song the user paid so that when his friends , relative call him they can hear the song while they wait for the call to be attended.
The Advertising which last about 7 seconds , is a serious issue as , Airtel is using people`s money to use their advertising. A normal person would pick a phone/call within 10-15 seconds and what is the purpose of one keeping the HelloTune when almost half of the time is purely advertisement from the company.
We had the same issue with BSNL , but its time we stand united and show these greedy Corporates that their plan of using our money to advertise their product is not going any further.
Here is recording of their advertisement
If you are willing to deactivate the HT here is the thing you can do
NOTE :- FOR DEACTIVATE HELLOTUNE DIAL 543211806 (free) AND DIAL *678# OR *106#
TO AIRTEL :
WE DIDN’T PAY MONEY SO THAT YOU CAN ADVERTISE !!

Very disappointed with you Airtel . They think either they are too clever or they are plain simply acting like fools. Now Ads show up now and then. Talk about being lucky .
