Caller Tune Hello Tune India

This happens very usually. I am calling a friend and he / she has a caller tune ( or hello tune ) but, for about 5 to 10 seconds, what I get to hear is their service provider advertising their Hello Tunes .

Most of the times, the person at the other end answers the call before I start hearing the song. So, are you paying for that advertisement ? Really ?

I haven’t collected enough information to confirm if this is only on any particular network. Do you guys know about this advertisement ? Is it on all circles / states ? ( I experience this in Karnataka circle )

Is this fair ?
