What is a Skiza tune
The SKIZA Tunes service is a personalized ring back tone service whereby you can download or record a SKIZA tune or message at the fee stipulatedby Safaricom. The selected SKIZA tune can be:
1. played to and heard by your callers (both Safaricom subscribers and callers on other networks like airtel) It rings from the time when the connection to your line is made until when you pick up or disconnect the call or until your caller is directed to your voice mail.
This can just help to entertain the caller as he or she waits for the call to be picked.
2. It can also be played to and heard by you when you place a call to both Safaricom subscribers and callers on other local and international networks from the time when you dial until when your call is picked up or disconnected.
