How Do I Get Rid of a Ringback Tone
Depending on your sim service, this may be a little different. But in most cases, you either go to their website, then turn off the ringback tone for good.
It also depends on which way you feel easy. So we included both ways.
1. Log in to Your Service Providers’ Website
Simply search your SIM provider’s website. Login to your customer account. This usually comes with your number as the username and an OTP (One Time Password) sent to your number. Enter them and you are in your account.
All your call records to services are now in front of you. Scroll down to the services section and you’ll find the ringback tone option.
Select it and select turn off from the menu. Your ringback tone will be turned off now. Try calling your number to be sure.
Tip: Sometimes the ringback tone option is situated under the VAS (Value Added Service) section. So if you don’t find it in the open, make sure to navigate there.
2. Dialup to the Shortcut Service to Get Rid of the Ringback Tone
In addition to the website visitors, you can also use your Service provider’s dialup shortcut menu to get rid of the ringback tone feature.
Every service provider has a unique 3 or 4-digit dialup service menu. Inquire about it from your service provider.
Dial that up and follow the voice instructions to navigate to the ringback tone feature and press the number they ask to turn it off. And you’re done.
Tip: Some service providers charge you for dialing their dialup shortcut service. Make sure you are aware of that.
