Having a "funny" or "goofy" answering machine message is such a personality combover.<br><br><br><br>
Here's mine: "Max Power. Leave a message."<br><br><br><br>
I, of course, use my real name (Hercules B. Rockafeller) on my voicemail.<br><br><br><br>
BIGGUP THA FUNKMASTA J IN FULL UHFECK Y'ALL.

I have a voicemail system (free download) that requires you wade thru several levels of recorded greetings from various "operators" at the "organization" before you get to my personal mailbox. Unless you happen to know my extension (which doesn't exist). Or you want to press 0 and wait for an operator (who is a recording who takes your message, and asks whom you wish to speak to.)

I change mine based on the time of year it is...Like right now it says that we are probably outside froze to the bone. And it also states that if we don't return your call within 24 hours to send the search party! Or I change it for the holiday..like around Valentines Day it'll be something like "Here's a great big hug and kiss ( and I'll make some goofy noises) and wish them a happy V-Day. One year I sang our message....to the tune of America the Beautiful (it was the 4th or July).

i still have that computerized male voice too, i've always had that ever since i've had an answering machine. i guess that would probably explain why no one ever leaves a message, oh well. i don't really like talking on the phone anyway heh.<br><br><br><br>
the best answering machine messages are the ones that just go "hello?".... "hello??" and people don't realize it's an answering machine so they try talking to it and are screaming into the phone. and then the recording starts and you hear them going "--wrong with my phone! i'll call back in a few minutes, hopefully it will work then!"<br><br><br><br>

changed it.<br><br><br><br>
someone called my house a couple weeks ago and left a message and then reported to my brother that i had 'some strange man's voice ' on the machine. then my mom proceeded to worry and..and. it was amusing. i usually warm people if they havent called before of the scary voice.

the one i use to have was nothing, it would just beep. you should hear the crazy **** people say. They dont know what happened or if they called the right number. everyone got mad at me so i changed it to something lame. I tried along time ago to record kerouac singing 'mary had a little lamb' to me but it didnt take. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I used to have one of Marcy from The Peanuts saying "Nickels, nickels, nickels." My dad left a message saying, "Laura, is that you?" Then he hung up. I changed it after that.<br><br>
Although, another time I had it where I said, "Hello? .....Hello?" etc. It pissed a few people off. So my mom got really mad about my messages and would always complain, so I figured that before I stopped with the strange messages completely, I'd do one last thing to get under her skin. So for my last weird message ever, I played the craziest part of The Beatles "Number 9". I just let it play as long as the message would record it. That was so fun. I think she said in these exact words..."What the hell was that?" and she was actually speechless for a bit. Now that was amazing. LOL

mine is automated voicemail and has a woman's voice doing a recorded message, but then it pauses and has my voice saying my name. sounds awful.<br><br><br><br>
my brother's used to be..<br><br>
"hello. . . hello? . . . . . . HELLO?! . . . ohhhhh right, i'm not home, leave a message. *beep*" at which point you're either laughing or cursing and forget what you were calling for.<br><br><br><br>

I'm not really a big fan of Seinfeld.. but that phone message cracked me up the day I heard it.

Right now it's something rather dull... my mom saying, "Hello, this is the -----s, and we can't come to the phone right now. Leave your name, number, and a brief message, and we'll be sure to return your call." We used to have a really cute one when the six year old twins were little and had just learned to talk in sentences. I forget exactly what it was, though.<br><br><br><br>
I honestly think it should be changed to, "Congratulations, you got the answering machine! Evidently no one is online here, so you know what to do."<br><br><br><br>
Or maybe just, "Well, I didn't pick up the phone. Talk."

Anyone wants me greeting callers on their answering machine, just send me a script, and I'll send you back a wave file! Or mp3 or whatever. I don't think I can do any realistic accents or dialects, but I can do a "foreign" accent from "unidentifiable-land."
