About

The Caller Ring Back Tone (Callertunes) service is a service that allows customers to personalize a tone that plays on their incoming calls. Rather than hearing a “tring-tring tune,” their friends, family, colleagues, and rest of their callers will hear a song or a Bible verse or their name or any tone of their choice.

Customers can choose a tone from the categories below:

1. Music.
2. Bible Verses.
3. Comedy.
4. Motivational Tunes.
5. Personalized Names.
