    I answer mine. After all, why have a phone in the first place if I don't use it? Do I make many calls? No. Do I receive many calls? No. But I answer it unless it's some weird number from another area code.

    To me, the phone is for emergencies. On a typical day, texts works just as well - sometimes better since I don't have to deal with being told to "write it all down".

    I grew up in the Middle Ages (without an answering machine) so checking the voicemail never comes naturally.

    I prefer texts, IM or talking in person to the phone.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I answer the phone if a)I can ID who it is before I pick it up and b)I want to talk to them. I never pick up numbers I can't identify, because it's usually the shithead bank calling to jerk me around with some new product or another.

    I typically only answer the phone if I recognise the number or when I am expecting a call.

    If I can find it and have remembered to turn the ringer (back) on. My phone is one of the major sources of sensotard moments for me. Not only do I have difficulty figuring out how and when to answer it, but I also have this really cool trick where I call a half dozen people without realizing I've done so. I usually find out right about the time I plug it in for the night and see the gazillion or so frantic texts from friends wondering whether I'm okay. (It's an iPhone and I'm an iDiot)

    I really don't care if I recognize the phone number. It doesn't make the phone call less significant if I don't know who's calling.

    I turn off my phone in order for no one to call me. When it is on, I still never answer and I am usually not doing anything when it rings.
