I've just upgraded two telecom phones to a Nokia 6225 and a Gtran 4020. I find that both make an awful noise (aka music) when you turn them on, and despite requests to the retailer (Telecom mobile) we don't seem to be able to turn the noise off.
Every time we turn on our cellphones we are reminded of the association of the Telecom brand with an unplesent experience. Over time we suspect it will work.
This is in the category of TV One playing their new promotional theme tune - I switch to TV3 and watch their news instead.
I suspect whoever in Telecom marketing who thought of this degree of customisation is in the pay of Vodafone.
Before i send the phones back (none of their advertisng suggested we would have to listen to unpleasent music before we made use of our phones); take up Vodafone's tempting offers for people that switch from Telecom; and whinge loundly to telecom mobile management, can anyone confirm that this "feature" is part of the customisation or can it be switched off?
