so what is your policy about missed numbers you don't recognize on your phone who don't leave a message? Do you call them back, or do you leave them be?

I ignore them. They're probably wrong numbers.

Could be. It's awkward where I live as I get spotty service...

I never call anybody back, known number or not, but that's mostly because I really hate talking on the phone in general. If it's important that they reach me, they'll likely try again. If they don't try again, it can't have been that important, can it?

Unknown number, though? Definitely don't call back.

I don't mind it, its just hard at home sometimes to keep a call on a cell. Usually I only pick up on out of state numbers. This was in state.

I.don't think I'll be calling back.

Nodnod. Sort of what I was thinking as well.

Ignore. If it was important they'd leave a message. Remember, it's an election year, robo-calls are up!

I didn't think of that, but it was a Nashville area code...

Sounds like a plan.

Gelseygelsey on April 21st, 2012 04:10 am (UTC)
I think I will.

I ignore them, especially if they don't leave a message. I've been getting calls like that a lot lately from places in Seattle, Washington.

We don't tend to get the robocalls much, so:

a) If it's a mobile, I call back. Usually the dills had a wrong number, but it's a courtesy to them and doesn't cost me a lot.

b) If it's a standard number, same thing. Especially if it's from a completely different state. Once more, it's most often a wrong number. (My number starts out repeating the first 3 digits XYZ, so people calling XYZ ABCDEFG sometimes call XYZ XYZ ABCD and get me.)

c) If it's a 1300- or 1800 they can damned well call back.

Of course, if there's no ID, then they need to leave a message. If the message is dubious, ("Hi, we'd like you to call back immediately", no reason given) then they can damned well call me again.

I'm not sure if its a mobile or standard. I would hope if they had something to.say they would leave a message or call back... Heck I would kind of appreciate a wrong number saying "sorry wrong number" in a message so I don't have to worry about who is calling and why.
