The burning question*: Do you listen to voicemails on your mobile?
It’s a bank holiday Monday, so let distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel. It’s back to work tomorrow, you have the whole week ahead and a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: Did you ever ring someone on their mobile, leave them a voicemail and get a call back later which went something like this:

You: Hi? Did you get my message?

Friend: No, I never listen to my messages. What’s up?

You: *sigh*

Or are you the person who doesn’t listen to voicemails because you’ll ring back anyway?

So here’s the question: Do you listen to voicemails on your mobile phone?

Poll Results:

B - No, if I have a missed call, I'll just ring them back (1956)
C - No, and I won't ring them back. If it's important, they'll call again (1588)
A - Yes (697)
D - I don't have voicemail (670)
E - I don't have a phone (243)
