    Nah, she just wants to make up for the sudden loss of my income should something catastrophic (to me) happen.

    All of the companies I do business with have proper caller ID. All my friends and relatives have proper caller ID. Kinda like the old joke about the Chinese laundry "no tickee no laundry" only it's "not know number no talkee."

    A bit related. The first week I had my new cell just before Christmas I got a couple of texts asking "what are you doing" then "where are you" then "Kendra what's going on" and I answered the one "Kendra are you okay" with "this isn't Kendra" and he replied "sorry my sister had this number" which led to a few pleasant exchanges regarding our respective sisters.

    Depending on your family situation you one day may regret not taking an unrecognizable or unknown or blocked call. How can you be sure the call wasn't from a hospital, or someone else's cell phone in an emergency. As a "general rule" I agree with you but with telephone numbers being so mobile you might regret not taking that one unrecognizable call as I did.

    Never - don't recognize it - it doesn't get answered . If it's known politcal - it doesn't get answered. If it's known sales - it doesn't get answered.

    If somebody calls me from a number not in my list - they can leave a message on either voicemail / answering machine depending which one answers.

    I'm sorry that happened to you. Every medical facility I have ever dealt with is identified by the caller ID. And believe me when I tell you that has been many in the last few years. I do have some numbers blocked. But they are all from nuisance callers. I also have a block on unidentified callers. However, they do hear the requirement to use caller ID in order to have their call answered. I will answer a stranger's call if their name and number are present. And if I choose not to the answering machine will get it just as it does when I'm unavailable.

    I completely agree with you! There are a number of a times I am glad I typically do not take that approach. If I am walking over to the phone to look at the caller ID, what is a few more seconds to answer it & hang up if it is a telemarketer or politely tell the individual they have the wrong number. Last evening, a gentleman called and was looking for someone who had my number several years back. He was extremely polite so I took a couple of minutes of my time and helped him find a new number for the person.

    What about a borrowed cell phone call which is what happened in my case (at 1:30AM). Also, my VOIP provider doesn't support CALLER NAME all the time. Maybe half the calls show the name one time and don't the next or not at all for some weird reason. When I ask them they say "we don't officially support CNAME." Hey, if it works for you, that's fine. It always worked for me as well.

    I've been getting calls on multiple lines from John with Polical Opinions of America. Same issue with caller ID. Very frustrating.

    As I said before, if it is a legitimate call, they will leave a message. If I am home and just screening calls, I will usually hear it and can pick up before they are done. 99% of the time it is a telemarketer or other sales call that just hangs up.

    I was at the wrong end of one of the situations you describe many years ago and had to spend a night in jail when my father let my one phone call go to the answering machine in the middle of the night. I got over it. It's not that big a deal.

    If it's a hospital that doesn't have proper caller ID, then I would be afraid to think of the other places where they are cutting corners or not following standard procedure.
