Uh oh. The recorded calls again!!
Shameless self promotion is one of the major problems, I feel that can be a nuisance to almost all the people. Many have become so irate after being subjected to the inhuman torture by the major cell service provider, that they vent their bottled up emotions on a unknowing person/object they can lay their hands upon. (Heck, you can’t even abuse a pre-recorded message).

Well, in case you’d like to do something about the scene, and you have Airtel, you go to :
Don’t Disturb

Lets’ hope it works and is not another phishing scam. (I’m not paranoid 🙂 )

  1. This is one thing that is even more distasteful than having chocolate syrup dripping all over a tomato-cheeze pizza !

    Hutch, Airtel, RIL, TATA Indicom … the list is endless, each worse than the other. Be it an important client meeting, a private moment of solitude you seek or just plain normal life … ‘Download KANK ringtones for free, calls @Rs 6 per min’ will always be there to jangle you back to reality (should I say commerciality) !
