    my fiance says no one listens to their voicemails if they just missed a call like if you were in a store or away from your cell for 30 minutes to an hour, i told her i always check so the person doesnt have to say everything twice. what do you do

    I do the same as you. If I miss a call I always listen to the message first. If they need some kind of info I can find it then call them back. That is as long as they say what they want in the message. Otherwise they have to either repeat themselves or you will have to say "I'll call you back when I find out."

    I always listen to my voicemail. Alot of times there is no need to call back if they are just relaying a message. I figure if there is no voicemail, it must have not been that important, or they will call back later or would have left a voicemail in the first place :grin:

    if I know what its about I won't listen to it. Or if I'm in some real hurry. Otherwise I always listen so I know what they wanted and can answer them quicker.

    Have too liston to it befor I can delete it. Damn thing won't let me just delete them. Caller ID lets me know who it was. Some relitives I'd just as soon delete without having too hear what they say.

    I gotta check my voicemail to delete the message anyway, so I'll usually just listen to it, unless I'm in an insanely mad rush, which is usually never.

    It's usually a business client on mine so I always check first...

    If it's my mom or my wife I just call them back most of the time.

    No one ever calls me so I have none to check.........:(

    If I do get one, I may check it, but I probably wont call you back, cause either I dont have your number, dont know your number, or just dont feel like talking to you.

    I just look at who called and yes it was the wife once again, her message always says "call me back I need to talk to you blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah"

    So I just call her back without checking it. :D

    I get around 45 calls on an average day. You do the math. I always check first. As often as not you can avoid the call. :whistle:

    Woohoo, you mean there's another guy on here that's never owned one! If I want to talk to someone I'll unpack the rotary dial.

    Gerri always retrieves our messages, I just don't think about it often enough and by the time I got your message we'd already be in the same retirement home.
