    I usually only call back if a message is left.

    I would feel weird calling back after just seeing a missed call and saying “Hi, you called?”

    You know what I mean?

     

    ETA: Unless it’s like Fiance or my mom, then I’m okay with calling when there’s no voicemail. 🙂

    I usually call back regardless, if I see a missed call or get a voicemail. That said, if you really want your friend to get back to you (since we don’t know their policy) I would leave a message stating “I would like you to call me back when you are free so wel can discuss “X”. At that point, there can be no mistaking your intentions!

    Good luck! Communication seems to be getting much harder these days…

    I only ever call back when there is a message – if I see a missed call and they didn’t leave a message I figure whatever it was wasn’t important.

    I would call back a friend even if they didn’t leave a message.  But if I didn’t recognize the number, I wouldn’t call without a message.

    I actually always tell people NOT to leave me messages because it’s a pain to listen to them. I’ll call back if I see a missed call, and as far as I know, my friends do the same thing.

    Depending on the kind of phone she has, sometimes you won’t get the information.  For instance, all of my previous cell phones/services I could view the number or it would give me the contact’s name, but my new phone doesn’t even notify me of a missed call, only a voicemail.

    I agree with MsMini, if it is important I feel the person would leave a message 🙂 Otherwise, I don’t call back (unless it is my mom, work, or BF).

    I have an iphone so I have visual voicemail making it super easy to screen people’s calls!

    Depends on who it is, but I generally won’t call back unless they leave a message.

    Is the friend generally good at answering phone calls?  I am absolutely terrible at answering phone calls and it’s kind of rare for me to respond to them.  It doesn’t help that I rarely remember to have my phone on me.  Actually, at this moment, I have no clue where I left it . . . maybe in the car . . .

    Most of my friends know that if they want to get through to me to email me, text me or contact my fiance.  So, if there another form of communication you can use to get ahold of that friend – email, Facebook, texting?

    I’ll call back if it’s a friend – most of us don’t leave voice mail bc it costs everyone money. Usually there will be a text explaining the call, which I guess counts as a message, but even without that I will call a friend back usually. If it’s an unknown number though I won’t call back.
