Announcing the launch of this unique service, Mr S Ramakrishna, Chief Operating officer, Andhra Pradesh, Tata Teleservices Limited, said “Tata DOCOMO is the leader in developing innovative VAS services on the mobile entertainment platform.

The process to activate the service is simple—when a Tata DOCOMO customer hears a song he/she likes anywhere, all he/she has to do is dial 57878 and hold the phone near the speaker of the source of the sound, be it a TV, laptop, music system, car stereo, in a cinema hall and so on. As soon as the customer does this, voice recognition software at the back-end will match the song’s availability in the Tata DOCOMO ‘Call Me Tune’ database and identify it from within the vast collection. Within 30 seconds, the customer will receive an SMS confirming the activation of the service and the song details, including the movie or album it is from, and the name of the singer(s).

After adding the song, customers can check their playlists any time and set Call Me Tunes and Welcome Tunes.
