    Is it often called by tax collectors? Do you call often? Do you prefer calling or texting? About how many people have your number? If you call, how long are you calls on average? If you text how many times di you have to empty your inbox if needed? How many texts/calls a month?

    I don't think this name was a good idea, I was going to report this thread.

    I don't get called very much, occasionally I get called by friends though.

    I used to get calls all the time from telemarketers. I put my number on a national do-not-call list, and they're literally stopped calling me. I haven't had once since. The only people that regularly call me is are my mother, one of my friends, and work, if they ever need to call me in. I prefer texting though, as it's cheaper and quieter than phone calls.

    I personally hate being called unless it's urgent and important, otherwise texting will suffice. My message inbox is never really empty because I never delete my conversations with friends. Lately, our household has been called by the same telemarketer number every day, several times a day and it's becoming increasingly annoying...

    I don't get calls often, usually family, friends, doctors, or work related or anyone I give my number to.

    When ever I get a call of someone I don't know I wont answer. I won't call back either if the other person on the line don't leave a message. Usually numbers I don't recognize, I'll google them.

    I have gotten a few 'robo-calls' apparently from the Caribbean (I looked up the number, according to their area code that's where it originates), I still wonder how they get my number, I'm still assuming they just call random numbers.

    Answer the questions on the first post:
    Spoiler:

    Is it often called by tax collectors? - never, tax collectors don't have my number, and I never give it to them.

    Do you call often? - Nope, not much of a 'phone' person myself

    Do you prefer calling or texting? - texting, it's much easier and convenient for short questions

    About how many people have your number? - about 13 people

    If you call, how long are you calls on average? - less than 2 minutes

    If you text how many times di you have to empty your inbox if needed? - I empty it out once I start having around 100 messages, or when I'm bored, which ever comes first

    How many texts/calls a month? - calls about 18 times a month, usually my mom asking me to pick her up from the light rail station - text at leas 90 or so.

    On average, I receive about six to nine phone calls per day. 30% of them are from work, 10% are adverts, and rest are from friends and family. I also send calls, but only on occasion. :p

      I only talk to my girlfriend, parents and close friends. I have a few weird numbers call me, but I send them to voicemail. If it's so important they can leave a message.

      I prefer texting. As much as I enjoy posting on forums, when it comes to talking on the phone, or messenger clients, or texting, I can be so anti-social. xD; Texting is what I do most out of three, and I talk on the phone mostly only when it's obligatory. If it's not, and a friend calls, I'll try to end it after a few minutes. I prefer seeing people face-to-face, or it's awkward. ;;;

      I did Skype call an online friend through the phone app the other day, though, and that was actually fun for an hour or so.

      Skype calling is waaaay better than phone calling by landline or cellphone. You save money that way imo :P

      The only reasons I call is for work purposes or when texting is out of reach and there's a sense of urgency.

        I prefer texting, though I have no one to text, lol. I'm awkward with phonecalls because I have less time to think of something to say. Though I'm not that terrible with them, lol. I can handle a phonecall, just I won't ring someone just to say what I could in a text message.

          My phone is not called by tax and bill collectors because I, shockingly I know, pay my taxes and bills regularly and on time! I much prefer to text than talk on the phone, but I'll call people occasionally when I need something immediately. A lot of people have my number but no one really blows up my phone with calls or texts which is nice. I never empty my inbox, haha. I have like 10,000 texts in there probably. I usually rack up about 500-1500 texts a month... it matters. Minutes wise I probably use about 300 a month.

            To answer the how many text or calls a month I have to use my Father's phone to text because mine lost service but it's around 2.5 thousand per month minimum, and for phone calls like maybe 1-4 times a month that are usually less than 1.5 minutes, but for the record of texts when I did have my phone with service I sent around 46 thousand texts and received 45.5 thousand texts in a single month.... Outrageous I know, but it didn't really seem like that much until I was yelled at xP
