  4. Soon you’ll get a reply with a list of songs with the name you searched for. Now reply with the option number of the song you want to set as your caller tune.
    For example, if the song you want to set as Jio tune is in 3rd position in the list then just reply 3.
  5. Now once the next SMS comes reply with 1 to set the caller tune for all callers.
  6. Now, you’ll receive another SMS from a different number. Just reply with Y to confirm and finally, you’re done.

How is this Process Useful?

You might be thinking why would you go through another process rather than using the JioSaavn app. There are a few reasons actually,

  1. The JioSaavn app is unstable and many users are currently having problems setting Jio tunes including me.
  2. In case of very slow internet speeds, the JioSaavn app might not work or you might not be able to listen to the songs before setting them as your Jio Tunes.

In case of the above-mentioned conditions, the process might be helpful and you will probably still be able to set a caller tune.
