    I was sending

    I was sending a message to someone to whom I called but he didn't response. Message is:

    Hello sir, This is Sunil Jain. Tried to reach you. Please let me know the convenient time to call.

    Is it correct to send message like above?

    Does the person know who you are and why you would be calling?

    The message is:

    Hello, sir,
    [space]
    This is Sunil Jain. I'm trying to reach you. Please let me know a convenient time to call.

    Yes.

    Tdol is asking a good question. You might decide to change the message to explain who you are and why you're calling.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Re: I was sending

    Is "response " correct in the above sentence( first para)? Shouldn't I use "respond"?

    Yes, you should use the verb 'respond' instead of the noun 'response'.
