i know for sure that they won't refund me the amount.......what i will do is to deactivate it before expiry of 30days subscription..........these companies find "cheap" ways to dupe their customers....

its actually irritating. Even Docomo does this! The ad goes like this " If you're a docomo customer. .plz press * to set this song as your caller tune" And then the song starts!

Airtel even tells you the subscription charges before the song starts. Caller tunes are pretty much worthless, imho.

Give a call to their customer care. They will remove the ad that runs prior to the caller tune then and there itself. I have gotten ads removed from both my Vodafone and Airtel numbers by calling the CC. Takes 2 minutes.

Though I agree that ads should not run before the song in the first place.

^ How exactly? I was told point blank that if I picked the phone quickly, the caller wouldn't hear a tune and they (VF) could not do anything to disable it from one number. I told them to FO.
