New York Telephone - Owen Murphy Lady Unable2Answer-Lite (c. 1970's)
(circa 1970's) A shorter and less raucous version of the Unable2Answer greeting that I also uploaded. Both of these greetings are meant to encourage callers to call again later, unless they MUST leave a message. This Lite version has fewer electromechanical switching noises at the beginning, that some callers mistook for their call being disconnected. (Although that may be desireable for borderline ditchmail callers). Send your unanswered calls back to the 1970's! The standard New York Telephone Owen Murphy voice, accompanied by vintage electromechanincal telephone sounds, asks your callers to try again later. A special operator then gives instructions for leaving a message.
sorry(?) ... call(?) your call again later please. This is a recording. Hold the line and operator will ask(?) for operator. Sorry we are unable to answer your hold you do please see if you must this message recording.
I wanted to name this greeting Unable2Answer-Lite (c. 1970's) to match the other one I uploaded, but apparently YouMail changed the greeting naming rules, restricting the characters that can be used in names. If someone from YouMail reads this comment, it'd be great if there were some way we could modify the names for greetings we've already uploaded. I tried several times before getting a name that was accepted, but now wish I'd made it something more descriptive than Unable to Answer. It'd also be great the categories could be multiple choice instead of a single choice radio button. I think the greeting might also fit into Fake Error/Out of Service and maybe Ditchmail. Better yet, let us create new categories like Vintage Telephone Sounds. Thanks for a cool service though. It's a lot of fun for those of us who love playin' with the telephone! Elmer
Thanks, YouMail for listening to our comments and making your service even better! Elmer
I just my use this one. Shopping for a standard greeting, but with some humor in the message.
