    The voice actor for Serious Sam (think Duke Nukem) is in debt and selling his voice for $1 a word.

    So I want him to do my voicemail!

    I keep getting phone calls on my iPhone, and it's really annoying. I'm deaf, and don't - and can't - use the phone function. So I want to have a voicemail basically telling the telemarketer that I'm deaf, and to not bother calling anymore.

    I'm thinking "I'm deaf, fool. Quit calling this number." Or something. Any ideas? (Keep it ~10 words or less!)

    It's a shame it wasn't the voice actor for Duke Nukem. Now that would be funny.

    You're in the US, right? You had those "can you hear me now?" commercials?

    Maybe "No, I cannot hear you now or ever. Messages are futile." ?

    Or how about "I'm deaf but I don't want to hear from you anyway. Leave no message." ?

    "Thank you for calling. This voicemail is for your entertainment purposes only due to the fact that I am deaf and unable to hear any message you might decide to leave here. Have fun playing with yourself!" :D

    You can have your voicemails transcribed with Goolge Voice! Now you can listen to what telemarketers have to say!

    You'd be surprised when you realize whatever they're trying to sell is absolutely necessary in your life!

    Also, why do you want Serious Sam to do your voicemail, if you don't know how he sounds! Is it his general persona that makes it tempting? Just curious...

    You're right, I have no idea how he sounds. It's just his general persona.

    I know about Google Voice - I was pissed when the app was rejected from the App Store. Morons.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far. But not quite what I'm looking for. I'm looking for something Duke Nukem (or Serious Sam) would say.

    If you have your iPhone jailbroken, you can get the very one that was denied from the App Store. I'm not sure off the top of my head if it transcribes voicemails, but there is always

    https://www.google.com/voice/m

    I think that might provide transcripts.
