Yes, I often make phone calls in English to my customers for collection of payments. And I also leave voicemail messages in English whenever I do not get response from my customers.

Frequently I call by phone but if the person that I call isn't online, I leave a written message. I think it is appropriated.

No, I don't. Nowadays, people often text instead of calling someone else. But I will try.
