If you do not recognize the phone number on the Caller ID or it comes up Private or Unknown, do you answer the phone?

I don't! I have a list of numbers by the phone on the wall. If we do not know who is calling we don't answer. Can't stand the telemarketer and politicians!

  • Nope, sometimes I'll call it back from MY own blocked phone to see who answers. It's always some telemarketing firm. Sometimes I google the number. --- Telemarketers. I feel sorry for people in those jobs.

  • Nope...mostly because I get a lot of collectors calling (not for me! For my mother, who insists on using my address and phone number, even though I have asked her repeatedly to stop, but she doesn't want my dad to know about them...ugh) and I am tired of them not believing me when I tell them I am not my mother. So if I don't know who it is, I don't answer.

  • Honestly? Most of the times I don't. I have an answering machine, so if it's important they can leave a message.

  • Normally no, but as of right now I need to because my husband is looking for a job and he doesn't want to risk missing a call from a potential employer. Also because we had to downgrade our phone and don't have messaging so if we miss a call they can't leave a message.

  • I just let it go to voicemail. If it is important, they will leave a message. If they don't leave a message.. then there was no need for me to answer the phone anyway.

  • right now I have to 'cuz my Mom is in the hospital and I don't wanna risk missing something important. Generally I'd let it goto voicemail though, esp right now w/ all the political crap
