Isn't it annoying
when somebody phone
s you but hangs up just before you can get to the telephone
? Especially when you have had to get out of bed
In the UK, we have the number
1471, which we dial after narrowly missing a phone call
. When you dial this number
, a sexy voice
comes on the line
telling you what the number of the last person to call you once.
This didn't used to work when you were called by a mobile phone
, but I believe it does now.
If you wish to call someone without reveal
ing your number, dial 141
before dialling their number.
Some phones also have a display
on which you can the the number
of the caller even before you pick up the phone
. This is made possible because of CLI
or 'calling line information'.
