Profile:How to Change the Ringback Tone on Chinese mobile
(單詞翻譯:雙擊或拖選)

Back in 2004, China’s cell phone users were grooving to their friends’ favorite tunes almost every time they made a call. Color Ringback Tones, as these songs that replac the repeating ringing signal are called, swept the nation after being popular with Japanese and Korean youth. More than 30 million users subscribed to the service in 2005, according to China Radio International, which let people pick from endless lists of Chinese and Western music to personalize their ringback tone. In 2009, The New York Times reported that even state-controlled China Mobile got in on the action by changing their users’ ringback tones to Jackie Chan’s “Guojia” or “Country” in celebration of National Day.

While these days the fad seems to be fading, reports say that China is still one of the primary consumers of ringback tones, even while Western service providers like AT&T and Verizon Wireless still offer support for this feature.

This means, whether you like it or not, there’s a chance your own Chinese cell phone has a ringback tone, and you’ve been torturing your friends with a polytonic symphony every time they call.

Let us help you fix that.

Get Started

China has two major mobile phone operators, China Mobile and China Unicom, and they both have a ringback tone service. If you use China Mobile, a ringback tone is called 彩鈴 (cǎilíng). If you have China Unicom, it is called 炫鈴 (xuànlíng). If you want a ringback tone, it doesn’t matter if you get 彩鈴 or 炫鈴—they’re the same thing.

China Mobile

Dial 10086 to call China Mobile’s customer service. You will hear a long introduction, but all you need to do is press 0 to speak with the operator. Ask, “Can you help me open the ring tone service?” (你能幫我開通彩鈴嗎? Nǐ néng bāng wǒ kāitōng cǎilíng ma?)

If this is too challenging, you can use China Mobile’s official website for ringback tones: http://music.10086.cn/.

1. Become a member and open the 彩鈴 service. Click 開通彩鈴業務.

2. The next page asks for your cell phone number (手機號 shǒujī hào), your email address and a verification code (驗證碼 yànzhèng mǎ). If you can’t read the code, click “change to another image” (換一張 huàn yī zhāng), and a new verification code will appear. Then, check the box to approve the user agreement (我已經看過并同意《用戶使用協議》Wǒ yǐjīng kànguò bìng tóngyì “yònghù shǐyòng xiéyì”). Then click “next step” (下一步 xià yībù).

3. Next, you will receive a mobile phone verification code in a text message. Enter the code into the box and click 下一步.

4. You will now receive a text message reminder from China Mobile which says, “Your Color Ringback Tone service is now available” (您的彩鈴業務已開通 Nín de cǎilíng yèwù yǐ kāitōng). The message will also include a song recommendation with a corresponding number. Reply to the text with that number to change your ringback tone to the recommended song.

5. You can also search any song’s name on the website http://music.10086.cn/. Enter the song’s name into the box on the top of the page and click “search” (搜索 sōusuǒ). Choose the one you want from the results and click “use as ringback tone” (定制彩鈴 dìngzhì cǎilíng). Enter your phone number and the verification code. Click “get verification code from a text message” (獲取短信驗證碼 huòqǔ duǎnxìn yànzhèng mǎ). Enter the code you receive in the text message and click “/confirm/i” (確認定制 quèrèn dìngzhì).

6. After you confirm your ringback tone, you will get a text message from China Mobile that says, “Dear customer, your ring tone is available now” (尊敬的客戶,您的鈴音設置操作已成功 Zūnjìng de kèhù, nín de líng yīn shèzhì cāozuò yǐ chénggōng). Congratulations!

China Unicom

Just like with China Mobile, you can call China Unicom’s customer service hotline at 10010. Press 0 to speak with the phone operator and press 9 to ask for English service. If you prefer to use their website, follow the directions below.

1. Click “register” 注冊新賬戶 (zhùcè xīn zhànghù) to open an account. You can either use your cell phone number to register (手機免費注冊 shǒujī miǎnfèi zhùcè) or use an email address (郵箱注冊 yóuxiāng zhùcè).

2. If you decide to register with your cell phone number, you’ll be asked to provide a verification code, a username (昵稱 nìchēng) and a passwor(mìmǎ 密碼). Confirm the password, check to agree with the user agreement and click 立即注冊 to register.

3. If you choose to register with your email address, fill this in along with the website verification code.

4. Return to the homepage and click 開通炫鈴 to open the ringtone service. Provide your cellphone number click 獲取驗證碼 to get your verification code. After you have the code, enter it into the second box. Don’t forget to click 確認 to /confirm/i.

5. Finally, search for your favorite song on the site by entering it’s name in the box next to “find music” (發現音樂 fāxiàn yīnyuè). Choose the right one and click the cellphone icon. A new page will pop out, wher you can check 定制炫鈴, provide your phone number, get a verification code and enter it. Click /confirm/i, and you’ve got a new ringback tone!
