    Ugh. I get all of the time “I called you! Why didn’t you call me back??” People call all the time and don’t leave voicemails and it bugs me half to death. I have issues with reception for whatever reason where I am, so when someone just calls you don’t see it as a missed call if you don’t have service. So I don’t know unless someone leaves a message. Getting hounded about calling people back when they don’t even leave a message gets on my nervvvves.

    Usually, a voicemail signals a more pressing need for a return phone call.

    Also, it’s easy for me to forget to call someone back if there’s only a missed call and no voicemail. 🙂

    Agree, I only call back if there’s a voicemail. Sometimes, depending on who it is, I text them “what’s up”.

    I generally only call back if there’s a voicemail.  If I just see a missed call, especially from a number I don’t have programmed into my phone, I just think, eh, they’ll call back if it’s important.

    For me it depends on who is calling. If it is a member of my immediate family or FH I’ll call back on just a missed call.

    Otherwise I never call back unless there is a message. I also don’t answer the phone unless I know the number and if it’s an unknown number without a voicemail I def don’t call it back.

    I get too many phone calls. I listen to all my messages, and still don’t call people back if there doesn’t seem to be a need to. It’s not that I’m anti-social, I’m just busy! If you leave me a message that says “please call me back. i want to talk to you” i will call back.

    I will only call back if there was a message left. I figure if its important I will either get a VM or a text right after.

    If they don’t leave a message, I assume it wasn’t important and they didn’t really want to talk to me.

    I call back a missed call if it’s someone I know and don’t call back if it’s an unknown number unless they leave a message.

    Depends on how much I feel like talking to them or if they are the type to leave messages. I have certain friends who always leave messages and those who absolutely never do. I know which are which and if it’s someone who wouldn’t bother to leave a message for anything short of the apocolypse… i call back 🙂

    I also never call back unless there’s a message. Unless it’s my husband, I assume that the person didn’t really need to talk to me. I also sometimes don’t get great reception…especially when I’m underground on my train, so if I go by the missed call, I’d probably miss half of them anyway! If you don’t leave a message, I’m not calling you back!

    Our phone doesn’t show us the phone numbers of people who called, so if people don’t leave a message and neither of us is there to answer we won’t know they called at all. Previously when our phone did have that capability, I wouldn’t bother calling back just for missed calls because I figured it must not be important because they didn’t leave a message.

    I’d recommend leaving a message the next time you call.
