RingTagz announce launch of new Android app, ‘Dead Tone’ to stop unwanted calls from playground bullies
RingTagz have launched new app, ‘Dead Tone’ on Google play, allowing Android mobile users to deter unwanted callers.
RingTagz, the service that allows mobile users to customise the ringing heard by those that call them, has today announced the release of their ‘Dead Tone’ app, a replica ‘out of service’ ringback tone which gives the impression the phone is no longer in use, deterring unwanted callers such as playground bullies. For the first time ever, UK mobile phone users can record and upload their own messages using the RingTagz application, even tailoring specific messages to specific callers, and applying them to their phone in minutes.
- Android users are able to apply the ‘Dead Tone’ to any mobile phone number they wish to give the impression that their phone is out of service
- The ‘Dead Tone’ app also gives the option for the users to let callers know they have been ‘Dead Toned’ via text message if they are using the service for revenge purposes
- The idea of using this app as a protective tool to stop or deter calls from the likes of bullies is an entirely new concept
Head of Central Marketing at RingTagz, Danielle Morgan commented:
“We think the Dead Tone is going to be huge. It’s a fantastic tool for parents to use, or introduce to their children as an aid to stop calls from pestering bullies causing unnecessary stress and upset. With the introduction of the Dead Tone app, mobile users will no longer have to go through the hassle of cancelling their number, or deal with unwanted callers, they can just make callers think it’s out of service.”
Danielle Morgan continued:
“When creating the Dead Tone application, a mother in our office commented that her son was being bullied by a group of youths and they were targeting him by his mobile phone, and that the Dead Tone would be the perfect catalyst to help avoid them. This problem is rife as the younger generation are now all using smartphones, and so we see Dead Tone helping youths avoid unwanted phone calls and hopefully seeing the bullying come to a stop.”
Danielle Morgan continued:
“The personalisation function means there is no end to what you can choose as your RingTagz, and the functionality of setting specific tags for specific callers makes it even more fun. It doesn’t all have to be doom and gloom! Imagine your partner calling on your anniversary and there is a lovely, recorded message waiting for them? Or when it’s your birthday coming up, you can let your family know exactly which presents you want!”
