WHAT is it about people whose mobile phones do not reveal who they are when they call – i.e. their names don’t show up, just the words ‘Unknown caller’ or the like?

Is it because they simply haven’t ‘instructed’ their mobiles to reveal their names, or is it because they’re shy, or is it because they consider they’re so important that their identification mustn’t be made known to the person receiving the call? Who knows.

Easiest thing to do is just not answer any anonymous calls: the caller can leave a message; it’s the receiver’s choice whether to reply.

That should soon bring to an end to such nonsense.
