I don't get many phone calls, so I can do this. However, most people leave their ringer turned on. So, how many rings before you answer the phone?
As many as it takes to reach my voicemail. Ha ha ha! I really don't love being on the phone. I have seriously had 4 voicemails for at least 3 months & I never checked them. I know, it's bad, but I just tend to avoid my phone for some reason. No calls are hardly important besides my parents, lovie, grandmothers, the kids & sisters. And they usually text. I'll answer my texts or call back if it's one of them, but it can take me hours. Lol. It gets me into some annoying situations, sometimes though. Like the time my poor dad needed a ride a couple months ago because his truck ran out of gas on his way to work & wouldn't you know, I didn't answer! But I seen his call after a while & went to his truck. I felt so bad for that. Looks like I'd learn.
I usually don't keep up with my phone unless I've been texting someone. I'll leave it laying in one spot all day or in my purse or leave it at home all together! I should really keep up better. Lol. I don't get many calls either, but I do leave my ringer on. I just don't bother to answer. LOL.
