As part of an incentive for those thinking of picking up the Windows Phone 8S or 8X from HTC, O2 will now be offering customers a bespoke voicemail message from the actor Brain Blessed.

Only the first 100 to buy the phone and Tweet @O2 with the hashtag #brianmail will receive the message, which will be recorded by Blessed and will include the person’s name and their interests.

The winner’s voicemail will be recorded in high quality and transferred to their account by O2, and as an added bonus they will also receive a copy of the recording in their inbox.

Brian Blessed who has already been chosen for one of the new navigation voices for TomTom said the following about the venture:

“I’m thrilled to be lending my vocal talents to the good folk at O2, I’m planning to have a lot of fun with the voicemail messages, and leave the caller amused, confused and generally bewildered.”
