Sometimes in one situations we can't receive phone call from the cell phone. And with cell phone, we knew who is the person or number which called us. But are you always call back the person who misscall you ? Or you are just letting him/her call back to you and pick it up when you have time ? Or it depend to your mood means if you curious you will call back? And is it polite not call back the person who misscall us (especially the person you know very well) ?

Well usually I don't call back the person who missed called me. I usually send a text message that I can't answer the phone at the moment and he/she can call me back at some time. Or sometimes I do ask him/her if it's an emergency.

I always return a missed call. The person making the call could be using a "pay as you go" mobile phone and be short of credit, or they may have simply moved into a poor transmission area and dropped the signal. In either case they are obviously trying to contact me so I would return the call straight away. I have returned calls and discovered that the person has called my number by accident, but at least that assures me that the situation is resolved.

Generally I do. But since I have voice messaging system so I can get the message and determine priority.

I don't really call them back once I have missed calls. I'd still usually wait for them to call me again, unless I think and consider that the person calling are one of those 'important' people on my contact list so that would be the time that I'd really call them back. Like, my fam'ly, my partner, my bestfriend...but other than that, I don't really call back.

I admit I don't always call back if I missed a call. It depends on who it is, if I know them well, or if I want to talk to them at this time. If not, I'll wait for them to call back. If it's important, my friends know that they'll either call back or contact me through my e-mail, which I check frequently. I personally don't think it's rude to not return a call unless they've tried reaching me multiple times. If I miss their call a second time, I definately return the calls because I presume it's important.

Personally, I never did. People make mistakes often when they dial numbers, so if we start calling them back it is going to be a full-time job.

sometime I call back sometime I do not. If I have to call back anybody who give misscall it would be too expensive. There are times when I don't call back even if I know who it is because I suspect that the talk will be a casual one...hi bye sort of... and I suppose that if it is urgent the person will call back. But there are times I call back. So it may depend upon the person and also the mood and the phone bill. I think sometime it is impolite not to call back, sometime it is not. And I would say the same thing even to the one to whom I tried to call but missed.

I try to return the call if I know the person. If the number isnt listed in my phonebook,I just wait for that somebody to call again. Because if it's important,they'll try to phone me again.

I absolutely hate it when people don't return phone calls. I do have to admit though, I'm guilty of it myself. Sometimes when someone calls me, and I don't really want to talk to them, I'll call back and leave a message when I know they won't answer.

oh yes ,unfortunately i have this habbit of calling back a person who gives me a misscall, and i tend to do that almost everytime. I do know i would screw up my balance, but i dont know still i make it a point that i call the other person, i always get really curious about the fact that who exactlly it is when it is from the unknown number.

If I recognize the number that called me last I will call back. If it's a number I don't know I won't. I always say if it's important they'll call back. With friends and family, I have their names and numbers in my phone and if I miss their call I call back without fail. They do the same for me if I call and they're not available. I think it's the polite thing to do and it shows that you care also. I couldn't just let them call me all the time.

I would depend on if I feel like talking to that person at that time. Sometimes I don't answer my phone on purpose because I am too busy to talk to certain people. I eventually would call back when I get the time.

I always return calls to people that I know. If I get a call and don't recognize the number, sometimes I don't call back, though anyone that leaves a message I will call back.

No I dont call back the person who miss called me because it can always be a mistake. And if it is genuine then the person would always give an other one. Then I will call the person.

I have caller ID for my phone. So if I missed a call from someone I know, then I would return the call or drop him a sms. Otherwise, I will only call back if I am in a good mood. LOL :P
