Caller Tunes

Hello tunes - the myriad melodies you hear when you call someone on the mobile phone - could reflect the user's personality and also affect the mood of the listener.

'Bright and light tones may reflect a bright personality but it could also be associated with someone who is feeling low and wants to feel bright. On the other hand,'Sad tones suggest an underlying depression or low mood. Romantic tones have their own story to tell.

But it could be other way as well where tunes could prove to be a complete contrast to the user's personality.

'When we choose something, our conscious and sub-conscious minds are involved. And unknowingly, our choice reflects our personality. In an effort to be what you feel like, the choice of the hello tune can depict the core of a person. But sometimes it can be completely contradictory to that as well.

'The hello tune also depends on the nature and surroundings of an individual. If someone is religious by nature, he will put a spiritual tune. And college-going people will prefer a trendy tune.

Recently, I encountered whole together a new twist to caller tunes, a guy who had a hindi caller tune was called up by his client(somewhere out of India) , each time he dialed and there was music in hindi for which he thought as an automated message in some other language due to unavailability of network or some other technical problem and so he used to disconnect it each time, thinking trying again later.

Every damn thing comes with a demerit!!!

well agreed it may sometimes depict the personality of the person..but sometimes it may not too..
i guess caller tones are too mild a criteria to judge a person from :)

but i know what u mean...sometimes they are soo bugging that u want to put down the receiver before the person even picks up the call...heehee

wish there would be something wch would judge the personality of the caller and play accordingly...no? ;p

Good Post!!!

Sometimes it cud be the personality and sometimes its pure fun.....thats what I think.

I usually prefer a caller tune which is popular n will be liked by the caller......a Sad song will anyways turn the mood off and the conversation will turn sad too....So why take a risk??

Currently its Dil Haara Re....from Tashan!!

And ya thanks for ur visit...will be back with something soon!!!

Hi Chakoli,

dear my ring tone is nothing but simple trin trin. How wud u guess my personality? waiting for ur reply.... :-)

Yo.. I had the same problem. When caller tunes were introduced long back, I had a dialogue from 'Khoobsoorat' as my tune. Half the people disconnected in a few seconds thinking it was some goddamn message. Then I had Gayatri Mantra as the tone. Many used to call me only to hear that, and told me not to pick up the phone until it finishes. Esp my Mom !

So, since then, its same old tring tring! And now, I play with my Voice mail message. Current one is 'awesome' accordng 2 biwi!

I had "Golmal hai bhai sab golmal hai" as my caller tune for about 3 years !!!

Just could not find a better fit :)

Thankfully even the big bosses liked to smile for a second before i picked up my phone and never asked me to change it :)
