Looks like you've found it's TMobile internal collections on 800Notes. No indications this is a third party collector in illegal disguise. Under the TSR you should be able to revoke call permission from this and any business, whether or not you are a paying customer.

Possibly you'll meet resistance since this caller, representing an original creditor, is not in a sales department and is not covered by TSR or FDCPA, but maybe your state allows you to issue a no-call demand to ''first party'' collectors.

If you want to take the tricky playback route, below is a link to my fave resource of telco alerts. The files should all be clean recordings, and the page covers several carriers and regions so you can likely find the sound files which are most authentic to your area. The site is also a treasure chest of fun facts about phone systems.

RE: How doyou tell a recording that they have the wring number?

If you’re contacted by a machine, fight back with a machine.

Play the U.S. Special Information Tone (SIT) signal for a ‘vacant circuit’ into your receiver. The robot will dutifully erase your number from its memory.

For more information, Google ‘SIT wav file’

It was a recording from T-Mobile, looking for someone not at this number.
How do you tell a recording that they have a wrong number??
This is the 2nd call from them, the first one was on 5-19-11 and they didn't leave a message.
