COVID-19 hasn’t yet ended, but many people seem to become reckless. In India, the lockdown has been lifted, but the COVID-19 persists. During the COVID-19 crisis, the Indian Govt. has taken all mandatory steps to spread awareness. From recommending the use of masks and the implementation of social-distancing, the Indian govt has also introduced a ‘Corona Caller Tune’
Yes, we are talking about the caller tune with a person coughing at the beginning of the call. Although the caller tune has been introduced for good, it’s no longer required now. This is because now most people across India know these necessary safety measures to protect themselves from the virus.
People are now finding the Corona Caller Tune irritating as it interrupts & ruins the mood of the person who’s making the call. According to the telecom operators, the Corona caller tune has been removed, but it’s still active in our experience.
Steps to Remove Corona Caller Tune From Android & iPhone
If you have become too tired of the Corona Caller tune and want to get rid of it, then you are reading the right article. In this article, we are going to share two best methods to remove Corona Caller tune in Vodafone, Idea, Airtel, BSNL, and JIO. Let’s check out.
Remove Corona Caller Tune on Android
Important: Deactivate the caller tune only when you have heard it enough times. If you are prone to forget important things like maintaining social distance, wearing a mask, etc., then please don’t deactivate the message.
To stop the caller tune, you just need to press any number by bringing up the dialer. You need to press any number at the start of the caller tune. Once you press a number, the message will immediately stop and the call would ring as normal.
This is a tried and tested method. However, this won’t deactivate the caller tune. That means you need to press a number every time you make a call. Just remember to press any number as soon as you hear the caller tune.
Remove Corona Caller Tune on iPhone
Like Android, you can use the same method on the iPhone to stop the Corona Caller tune. However, you need to press a different button on iOS. On iOS, you need to press the ‘#’ button at the start to stop the caller tune.
If the corona message continues to play, then you need to press the ‘#’ button again.
