    No... no one in my family is a phone person. My husband has a work phone which he answers only during work hours. I have a phone which I got for internet access during a hospital/rehab stay. And both my adult children (ages 29 and 33) have prepaid cell phones on which I think they spend about $10.00 a year to keep active.

    None of us are drivers, and if I want to have a chat with someone I'm more inclined to say, "Let's meet for breakfast", than I am to say, "Give me a call."

    if i miss a call i miss a call. i try to answer my phone whenever i can as i am running a business but if my hands are full i have caller id and voice mail i will call back if needed. it is kinda irritating that hardly anyone ever leaves voice mail anymore. for a couple reasons one, if i am in a spot that i don't have service it wont record the caller id of the missed call or show a missed call but it will show new voice mail when i have service again. and for the other if your calling from a unknown number and don't leave a voice mail i don't know who you are or why you called. i hate returning calls to telemarketers.

    You can easily have them stop by going to. https://www.ftc.gov/

    follow the link to the DO NOT CALL Registry, and follow the prompts.

    may take some time to report all the phone numbers, but it is doable. Those calls do stop, in time, and best of all, this service is for free.
     
    pattyj Thanks this.

    I normally don't check messages. Normally don't answer if I'm busy when I guy calls. I'll answer when a pretty woman calls

    Even on the Do not call and the Indiana Attorney Generals website, they say they can't stop Rachael from Card services. But they hope to in a year or two. I block the calls on my Iphone, but they just make up a new number.
