How to subscribe or disable caller ringtone “Hello tunes” on Airtel Kenya network

Sometimes it just feels right to have a specific tune for all or some of your callers to listen to before you eventually pick up the phone. With Airtel Kenya’s Hello tunes service, you can customize a specific ringtone that could be either an interesting quote or a tune to music that you love so that whenever someone calls, they’ll listen to the tone until you eventually pick up the phone.

And to be honest, there are a few people I know that have set some really funny tones, mostly using Safaricom Skiza tunes that sometimes you just want to listen and listen forever, especially those done in different mother tongue dialects. We recently explained how you could set a Skiza tune on the Safaricom network and later on Telkom Kenya network’s Beat Yangu and now Airtel.

To set your favorite tone on Airtel Kenya, you can use a text message to subscribe, a USSD code option and even listen to some of the tones before choosing one that suits you. And of course, there are a couple of requirements that I believe if you’re already on this page, chances are you’ve already met them.

  • You need to have an Airtel Kenya SIM card
  • And a working phone. Doesn’t necessarily have to be a smartphone.
