Recently I have installed an app that shows the name of the caller, it's work is just interesting what is does is it read all my contacts name and number and uploads it into its server i.e. their connecting is like growing way to fast...... :) well, if i am receiving a call from some unknown number it looks for that number in its database and if the number matches then corresponding name is displayed in the screen wether that contact name is present in your contact details or not... so in this way i know about the name of the caller and if it's from just ...... an unknown person whom I don't know I keep my phone ringing unless if i identifies the person I just pic up !! :grin:

Depends on the country I am in. If it is in the UK, the chance of it being somebody looking to sell you something is much greater than in Germany. So I definitely don't pick up in the UK.
But you can also end the call as soon as ya know that it's marketing business...
Could also be a friend who happened to have shut off number transmission for whatever reason

If it's important they'll leave a message. Let it go ("Let it go! Can't hold me back anymore!" Sorry.).

I would pick it up. People are entitled to their privacy and those who block their numbers usually have unlisted phones (I stayed in one woman's apt who's a media personality). Often when I had a landline, I would get a message saying "If you want to talk to this recipient, you must unblock your number," which is fine. Aren't cell phones equipped with such a feature?

I usually answer the call, since not doing that increases anxiety. But the best thing to do is change your number if you are getting too many creepy calls.

I only answer local calls even I don't recognize, but don't answer unknown calls from other areas. Fraud calls too much!(yawn)

I do pick up when i am alone, most of the times i prefer a friend or someone from my family to pick and check. Most of the times they are wrong numbers.
