Default What numbers do I hit (step by step) to accept his call?

Hi, I am from germany and my man is in Virginia, Pocahontas. We want to talk on the phone. Yesterday I got this bot-phonecall. Can anybody explain me please, what I have to hit?
At first I hit Number 1, next I said my firstname and next I hit Number 2.
My love wrote me today I made anything wrong?
Is there someone who could explain me, which numbers I have to hit (step by step) please?

I am really hopeless.
Thank you very much.

I assume that he requested your number to be added to his list so he can call you. Once it calls you hit one like you stated then it ask you to say your name and then hit number 2. After that it should say something like your number has ben added to the inmate list. That's all! But it may take some time to get approved. Maybe like a day.

Hope this helps

Do you remember if it told you that your number would be placed on his list? It usually says it right before it hangs up. If its not taking it when he tries to call you again you'll get the recorded call again.

My number is placed on his list. My problem is: the last message was too "fast" for me, I don`t understood the meaning and what I have to hit. It`s difficult for an foreigner with school english ;-)
I know they try it 4 times a day. I missed the 1. call and then I got the 2. call. 1-my name-2. And I`ve thought it`s done and ok now. But he wrote me the next day, I did something wrong.

thanks for your help :-) And greetings from bavaria

It`s spring. We have new flowers in the garden. I love spring.

I was in Florida 2 weeks ago (for 16 days) and now I am back. We had warm weather in Florida (pooltime) and in germany was it very cold. 5 fahrenheit.

Thank you very much.
I've done this twice but I can't remember what I pressed..sorry. But I do know that I had to say my full name..first name and surname..not just my first name as you said you did..maybe that's the problem?
