Question about Nokia 6300 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

I want an 'engaged tone' to sound when people try to phone me whilst I'm on another call!!

I understand the importance of being accessible and contactable to others in this hectic 'Rat Race' way of life that we live, but, my mobile (business) can ring anything from 50 - 100 times during the day!!

The problem is this;

It's either 'Call Waiting' - sure fire direct route to madness!!!
or,
Bloody Answer Phone!!! - I'm then obliged to make a return call, more time with the thing stuck to my ear!!

Bottom line is, I hate these features - which are more geared toward recreational phones for your mates than business users if you ask me!!

So can anybody help me find, or activate the good old (and much missed) 'engaged tone'? In doing so, also assist me in retaining my sanity for a little while longer!!
(Service provider think I'm 'whacked out' for wanting such an "out-dated" feature and are usually about as much help as a 'Windows 98 For Dummies' manual would have been in the late 'Jurassic Period' of pre-history!!

Any help would be most welcome.

I am not sure what you are trying to say here. Is it the busy tone you want? You can deactivate your call waiting, or if you totally do not want to receive calls, you can block incoming calls through call barring if your provider supports it (menu>settings>security>call barring>activate all) or you can deceive everybody by having a ringback tone and voicemail message that sounds like a busy tone. Or perhaps you could get a phone that has that feature built in (try checking with sonyericsson because they had a phone before that could block incoming calls to specific numbers).

I am trying to use a ringtone i downloaded as a message tone. so when a message arrive you hear a song


You can do this one of two ways. Either you can set a universal "Notification Tone" for your phone with the desired song, or you can set a specific notification tone for your particular messaging app.

To set a universal tone (which will play when messages arrive, and for calendar events and other "notification" type events), do this:
- Go to your App Drawer and tap Settings
- Tap "Sound"
- Tap "Notification Ringtone" and select the song you want. If the song doesn't appear in your list, download RingDroid and use it to save the tone as a Notification tone. Basically, you'll just open the sound in RingDroid, tap the menu key and then save it as a notification tone.

If you only want the sound for a particular app, like the default messaging app, you'll need to open that app, tap the menu key, access the Settings menu and look for something like "Notification settings." In the default messaging app, the option is at the bottom of the Settings screen, and you tap "Select ringtone" to choose the sound you want to play when a message arrives.

I have Nokia 1661-A and model: 1661-2b. When


I had the same problem with mine. when I would go to tone settings every time I tried to hit ring tone it would turn off the phone and restart, by the way in ring tone it was blank. No matter what I did it wouldn't work. So I went to settings then restore factory settings entered the code. It reset the factory settings, then when I went back to tone settings the ring tone said Nokia Tune so I hit enter and it gave a list of all other ring tones, then it worked so my phone finally rings.... Hope it works for you.

How to change the message tone on samsung corby


For the Samsung corby pro, go to settings from the main menu. open the phone profiles, select the normal profile, then access the uppermost drop down box (which should say incoming call by default) select the new messages option, scroll down to the message alert tone and viola.
you can choose from the default tones or even or even upload one of your own by clicking the sound button.
