    No. It’s a Samsung.

    I prefer text as I am very hard of hearing. No miscommunication.

    I only answer when I recognize the caller- otherwise they go to voicemail.

    I got a really nasty voicemail - yelling at me to stop calling them!

    I had never called them before-

    A little while later I get another call from the same number - I answer it and explain to the guy I have not been calling you - someone must be using my number - but it is not me.
    He doesn’t accept that and starts calling me names-

    I hang up - block him - some folks just don’t understand.

    Does this allow people to leave a voicemail?

    Like say someone not on my call list calls -

    never mind - I just went there and I read it.

    I was really hoping this thread would explain to me why the trailer park/ghetto crowd at Walmart have to hold their phone out in front of them, in speakerphone mode, and yell at it as they shop.

    I don't answer calls from unknown numbers. I did get on an unknown multi-text conversation though, so that pops up from time to time. Must be some kind of work group or something.

    I’ve never received a robocall or whatever they are. Not a single one. I answer my phone anytime it’s on which is roughly 60 percent of the time.
