Re: do you pick up your phone(house or cell)

i usually do because you never know where that phone call maybe coming from(learned the hard way once) but now i have this one person who i do not care for having my number anymore and they refuse to stop callingChat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon but i am not going to change my number for one person. so now if it comes up private i will wait for a message to be left.

ets: they have now started using the *67 (or what ever it is) to block their number in thinking i will pick it up. after the first 2 times it came up as blocked i picked it up(hey you never know) and now i do not only thinking this person will be on the other lineChat Icon

No. We screen those calls. The answering machine is in the living room, where we are most of the time, so it's easy to hear the machine.

Only on my cell if I am waiting for a phone call. At home I always let the machine get it.

mostly, because I know it's either a friend of mine or my parents Chat Icon Very rarely are telemarker calls private. They come up as anonymous. Our number is private too, so I guess most people don't pick up for me either!

Re: do you pick up your phone(house or cell)

Absoluely not.. My messages even states "I am no accepting any private calls at this time. If you are calling from a blocked number please hang up hit *82 and redial my number. Then your call will be accepted" I hate private calls.

Re: do you pick up your phone(house or cell)

yes, because my parents' and my sister's numbers are both private, so it's almost always one of them.

Re: do you pick up your phone(house or cell)

Rarely. I don't know anyone who normally calls from a blocked number so I assume it's a call I'm not interested in taking. If it's someone important they leave a message & I call back.
