The codes here are displayed using the numbers 0 – 9, as well as # (hash) and * (star).

These represent the keys on your phone.

First of all select the “Composer” function on your phone which can be found under the “Tones” menu. If you have to, choose “Options” and “Clear screen” to remove any previous tune you may have entered. Find the code you want and then key it in, taking care not to key it in too quickly (the phone can be slow sometimes!!) or miss out any digits.

When you’ve keyed it in, select “Options” and then “Play” to listen to it and “Options” followed by “Save” to store the tune.
