Default programmed electronic voice: "Your call has been forwarded to an automated voice messaging system."
My recorded voice: "Amy ___."
Default programmed electronic voice: " . . . is not available. At the tone, please record your message."
Or something like that.

Yeah, when I got my new phone, I realized after about a week that I had given my number to several people I was waiting to hear from but had forgotten to set up my voicemail, so I set it up in a hurry with one of the default messages. (I did extend the effort to leave my name, though, because I had changed my number, and any time I call a number I've never called before I like to hear the person's name in the message so I can verify I called the right place). And I just haven't bothered to change it. I wouldn't use anything clever, though, because my cell phone is the only phone I have and I don't want to turn off potential employers and things like that. Being a grown-up is no fun.

I get nervous when the message doesn't have the person's name either. After the earthquake I was trying to call my dad and I didn't realize I had switched 2 of the numbers as I just got the standard message that just listed the number (which I knew was the message he had) so I left a semi-panicked voicemail for someone else, heh.

Eek! Was it someone you knew at least, or someone completely random?

Oh wait I think I read that wrong . . . You meant you switched two numbers in the number, right, not two contacts on your phone. Right?

Haha yeah. So I have no idea who it was that got that message, lol.
