Tim Guill of the VoIP service provider comparison site VOIPevo.com wrote me earlier today to tell me that a funny thing happened today when, following the lead of a "Talk To Santa" Vonage promotion, he dialed *101 overhis Vonage line to talk to Santa and leave the old bearded gent his Christmas wish list.
"It (the call) goes directly to his voicemail which has a very nice message from Santa," Tim writes. :At the end there is the typical female voice, but instead of the usual line, "Leave a message after the beep,' " well, Santa wasn't taking any more messages at the time Tim called.
"The slightly somber/apologetic female voice comes on and says 'Sorry, but the users mailbox can't accept more messages,' followed directly by a busy signal," Tim adds.
"Classic!," Tim chuckles in closing.
I'm laughing too, as I'll bet you are.
