No, I haven't tried to leave voicemail messages in English, because in my country to leave a voicemail is a very rare thing.

I call some of my friends who speak in English and we do our conversation in English. But, on my private mobile phone, I have never used my voice message to others in English. I hope I will do that in my future job at a big company.
