The article reports on the launch of endtone, a technology that plays a musical tone similar to a ring tone to signal wireless users when a call has ended, disconnected and dropped by the network. The technology was conceived by Brock Muir, president of Endtone, after being frustrated with a wireless service that fails to signal users that the conversation is over. The technology will allow subscribers to be aware of the calls dropped by the network. The company is negotiating with operators to add the concept to their service.
