Today, when voicemail kicked-in, I noted that giffgaff have changed the voice that delivers the opening message. Problem is….the male voice now sounds like a loud, over-excited teenager, and is annoying. Can we choose a different voice?
mc_zen Can we choose a different voice?
Given the posts in the thread linked to above and threads on the specific topic elsewhere, the change of voice has not gone down well.
It’s just a voice. All it needs is to be understood.
Have to agree with you, the new voice is harsh/grating and lacks the warmth and pleasant intonation of the old voicemail voice artist. Presumably those responsible for selecting this voice had guzzled a bit too much wine one Friday afternoon in the giffgaff offices and selected the first option they were presented with!
Couldn’t agree more, Please giffgaff, bring back the old voice or find a more friendly voice!
Why don’t you just box clever and record your own greeting simples it’s just voicemail
It’s awful. Why should I have to record one myself just because giffgaff have such an awful message.
I thought it was just me but delighted to see I’m not the only that misses the warmth of the last voicemail. This one absolutely get’s my ackers up before I even listen to the message. Bring back the cheerful northern lad pleeeeeease giffgaff
P.S what’s with having to now confirm a delete? Not user friendly at all
