hello

i wonder why it is people who phone dont like answer machines, where i live they dont seem to like them, just had a with held number and i thought not going to answer it if its important they can leave a message, and they didnt it cant be that important,

How do you feel about them ? i like to know who it is dont you ?

    I tend to the 'thrown' by them and ring back later once I have composed what I want to say :oops:

    anyone phoning from the local council always withold there numbers because in the past they had people phoning them to say " did you ring me " and it wasnt them, i think all with held numbers should be stopped or at least leave a message.

    D socail worker is one of them and i dont want to speak to him dont like the man, i dont like answer machines but i will leave a message i think it polite as the other person i am ringing may feel the same as me.

    My number is with-held as I am ex-directory. I happily leave messages for people. If I encounter a with-held number and no message it isn't a problem. If they want to talk to me they'll ring back. It's more likely, however, that it's one of those silent-call dialling machines that has rung me - a right pain they are and I don't want to talk to them! DD

    hi D D mine not with-held but i can withold it by prefixing a number with 141 and that with holds in for that call.

    Hi Sylvia,

    Can't say I like answering machines.... I tend to freeze and if its a friend I ringing I just try again later. if however its something important I will leave a message but it tends to be hurried and panicked cus I hate talking to them.......

    the withheld number thing..... I know a few people ex directory so do answer them but..... its sometimes those machines and I hang up no matter what they are selling..... they are a bit annoying....

    Hope you have a good holiday. Cris
