Restricted call

    About once a week or so my ringer goes off, but when I pick up the
    phone it says "restricted call". If I answer it, no ones there. I am
    disconnected immediately. If I don't answer it, the phone
    disconnects after 3 or 4 rings.

    Is this some test call or something from Verizon? Anybody else
    getting these?

    It's a call where the caller has blocked the sending of caller ID. On a home
    caller ID display, you'd see something like "Private" or "Number Blocked"
    (ymmv).

    I don't answer the cell phone for callers who block their number. If I have
    to pay for the airtime, I at least want the option of rejecting the call.

    Could be someone pranking you. When I get these calls and I'm not
    immediately expecting one from someone, I do not answer.

    Just to let you know, I have received some calls like this also. Being
    that very few people know my cell phone number, I normally answer all
    incoming calls. I don't think I will in the future.
