Frequently Asked Questions - Sending & Receiving Messages

Once you have dialed into the system, our prompts will guide you through the simple process of setting up your voice personals mailbox and recording your ad. Remember to speak clearly and directly into the phone.

Although as tools they share the same goal - to help you connect with interesting, new people, greetings on the Connector and your voice personals mailbox are used in different ways. Your voice personals mailbox ad (or greeting) is your identity on TangoPersonals, and is available to callers to hear 24 hours a day. It should contain the most detail about who you are, and whom you are hoping to meet. Your greeting in the Connector is heard only by other callers in the Connector, and should contain information about who you would like to talk to right then and there. It can be short and direct, but feel free to have fun with it, and make it different from your voice personals mailbox ad if you feel like talking to someone different than who you're looking for in the voice personals mailbox. When you hang up, your connector greeting is erased, but your voice personals mailbox ad remains until you change or delete it.

You can simply delete the message and move on. The person that left the message may send you another message, but that's all they can do. There is no way for them to get in touch with you outside of TangoPersonals, as all of your personal information is kept confidential. While on the Connector, if you get unwelcome messages, or just don't like what you hear while you're browsing, you can block the caller from sending you messages by pressing 7, when the system prompts you.

Send them a message back! You can do this back-and-forth as many times as you like until you decide you are ready to take it further, whether by arranging a meeting or by giving out your name or phone number. TangoPersonal's best feature is that you decide when you're ready to proceed. We keep your personal information private at all times.

We want everyone to have an enjoyable experience using our system. We will not tolerate any discrimination based on age, gender or race and we will not allow any references to illegal substances.

A "message" is a personal voice message that you record and send to a caller who catches your attention. Messages allow you to get to know other callers while still hearing the greetings of other callers on line. A "connection request" is a special type of message inviting a caller to join you in a private live conversation.

Remember this is your introduction to everyone online, so take some time before you record to write out what you want to say about yourself, and about the type of person you're looking for. Be specific, and don't be humble! Stand out from the crowd and make them want you! It's also a good idea to practice reading your ad aloud a few times, so that you sound more confident when you record.

All kinds of people call into TangoPersonals, but due to the nature of our service we find that many are looking for a relationship of some kind, be it of a casual nature or a more romantic nature, and they are willing to try something new in order to meet the right match.

Voice mailboxes are the heart of our service, and your most powerful tool for connecting with the person of your dreams. The ad you record for your voice personals mailbox is your 24-hour a day presence on the system, and should contain as many details about you and who you are looking for as you can imagine. Additionally, placing your ad in a category guarantees that the right people, those looking for the same kind of relationship as you are, will hear your ad. Of course, having recorded an ad you'll need a way for interested people to get back to you, and your voice personals mailbox is where their responses will go. You can also have a voice personals mailbox just to respond to any ads you hear on the system. If you do not wish to run an ad, you can designate your box as being "For Responses Only".
