Restricted call

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Bob Giddings, Jun 10, 2004.

  1. I don't answer calls with no caller id either. I might call them
    back if they leave decent voice mail, and I bother to check it in time.

    That sounds like what a telemarketer call would be like. No caller Id,
    Autodialer, no-one there when you first pick up, hang up if you don't
    answer......
    With number portability, I'm getting more and more of those now....

    Remember the old cleaner saying "no tickee, no washee", updated for cell
    phones that would be "No caller ID, no answer" :)
