How to set your Name as your Caller tune on MTN and Airtel Uganda

MTN and Airtel caller tunes are known for latest comedy skits and billboard 100 tracks hosted in the telco databases as in-call spicers. But nothing excites better than listening to your name greeting instead of a political track or ordinary tone as your call back tune
