I recently came across something I have never heard before. When I call this one number, which is a normal mobile number, instead of hearing the standard 'ring ring' tone I hear music. Quite literally, a song.
I don't know the person who I was calling, it was through work so I can't really ask them how they did it.

I was hoping someone on here might know how this is possible? Maybe its setup through the network provider.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Hi kaotix, this is a orange feature..only discovered this myself a few days ago. orange allow you to change the ring ring to a list of songs, voices or whatever they have. You can then assign this new caller tone to individuals or to everyone who calls you.

check it out if your on orange that is...

ATT/Cingular has had this for quite a while. They call theirs Answertones.

Q. What are Answer Tones?
A. Answer Tones let you replace the standard ringing sound that a caller normally hears while they wait for you to answer your phone. Answer Tones may be an audio clip of a popular song, celebrity voice, joke or quote. There are emotional categories and many genres to choose from.

Q. Are Answer Tones different than Ringtones?
A. Yes, Answer Tones are different than Ringtones.
Ringtones are what you hear from your phone when someone calls you. Answer Tones are what your caller hears when they call your phone, in place of the standard ringing sound.
Ringtones are downloaded to your phone and stored within the handset. Answer Tones are stored on the AT&T network in a personal "library" that you can access and manage via the web or Media Net. And because your Answer Tones are stored on AT&T's servers (rather than downloaded to your handset), you can move your SIM card to another phone and your callers will still hear the Answer Tone you've selected for them.
Each Answer Tone will have an expiration date associated with it. As an Answer Tone's expiration date approaches, we will alert you via a free text message so that you may re-purchase another Answer Tone.
Because the Answer Tones service is provided on the AT&T network (unlike Ringtones), there is a monthly fee for service.

T-Mobile US has it available also, for an extra fee of course.
