Airtel customers who use prepaid and postpaid plans above Rs 126, will now be able to set caller tune for free. The caller tunes were previously chargeable at Rs 36 monthly. The only catch, however, is they will have to do it through Wynk Music app.

A user can set the caller tune as many times as they want, and in case they decide to use the same one, then they will have to renew the subscription after every 30 days, Airtel said in a release.

Stating that ‘Hello Tunes’ lets Airtel customers express themselves, Airtel CEO Sameer Batra said in a statement, “We are happy to offer Wynk Music’s catalogue as ring back tone to our customers. They can now set their favourite songs with the click of a button set them as their Hello Tune.” He also referred to the offer as ‘a delightful benefit for Airtel customers.’
