Alright, I was just wondering how many people only answer their phones if it's a text. It seems like like NO ONE answers their phones anymore. I don't know if this is a big trend everywhere or if it's more or less just a local thing. I'm in Nor-Cal (hella ).

90% of texts are unimportant and not worthy of me answering them.

EDIT: I misunderstood the question. I answer phone calls because everyone that has my number knows only to call me if it can't wait.

I have a telephone with the numbers 0-9 on it. Sometimes when I'm lucky I'll get reception and make a call. Sometimes if I'm even luckier, that person will answer.

#7
Not a lot of people have my number, and the ones that do have it know not to bother me with pointless crap. So I almost always answer texts, and most calls (unless it's an inconvenient time)

No one texts me. If they do, I rip their nuts out.

Where do you live? I live in Northern California too.

I answer both calls and texts. (Probably because nobody every tries communicating with me).
#12
I barely ever get called, but I usually answer if I know the number, but if I don't know the number then there's a 50/50 chance of me answering.
I also answer texts when they have a question worth answering
#13
I answer to phone calls more frequently, because if someone calls it means they want to talk to me. On the other hand, sometimes people text me just because they have a stupid joke or they're bored (although I do receive many important text messages too).
#15
I answer all texts, and phone calls from people I know. otherwise if they call my cell and I don't know them, i let them leave a message.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

The last serious text I got was my friend checking all the numbers in his phone.
It's been months since I've read a text message.

I try to answer any calls I get, but it seems everytime I get a phone call I'm in the toilet trying to have a crap
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

I (almost) always answer a phone call, and usually respone to texts, unless it's meaningless bullshit.

Threads like this make me feel good about my social life. I usually answer both depending on who is trying to contact me.

Where is the "No one calls me/texts me" option?

#23
I answer both. That being said, I only really text one person particularly often, and she always texts instead of calls me, so...

If I get a phone call, I almost always answer it. If I get a text, same. Unless I'm not in the mood then I don't or I wait a few minutes if I'm busy.
#26
Instead of the last option being a please specify you should of made two separate versions. One with texting and the other with calls.

Anyway, I answer texts more. Phone calls are awkward and annoying. I can't stand being on the phone.

More people text me than call me. Texting is cheaper.
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant

I don't answer stupid texts like "lol pray fer a snow day then 4wrd this to 10 ppl" but for the most part unless it's someone I don't want to talk to I always answer my phone.

Whenever my mobile rings I don't normally hear or feel it straight away so by the time I whip it out of my pocket it's stopped ringing and gone to answerphone. So I do try

Oh my... would you look at that





It seems as if an avatar has fallen out of somebody's pocket and is shivering, all alone in the cold, waiting for somebody to take it in to a warm loving home. I wonder who has the heart in themselves to do such a selfless act.

You need to uprgrade your friends. Try a newer, spam freee one.

I answer them both, generally. I theres something in a text that doesn't need answering, I'll leave it. There is a mutual knowledge that there is no need for a reply.

If someone gives me the time of day to text, or call, then I'll answer it. It it's a text I might read it later but I'll still reply.

Unlesss this happens while I'm sleeping or when I'm about to sleep. I just turn my phone off and think 'Fuck 'em'
