My phone has been blinking since Friday here at work, but I haven't listened to the message(s). I figure, if they really need to contact me, they can send me an e-mail. I may not open that for days as well, but at least I know who it is and usually a general idea of the subject matter.

Not a huge fan of voicemail or phones. If they don't want to text me they can ring back.

I don't see any problem with it, but some people at work may question me later as to why I didn't do some task they left on my voice mail or something. It's annoying.

I never avoid listening to my voicemail.

I know people care about me.

I hate listening to voice mails, at work or home. I hate calling people back even more.

voicemail, I listen to the messages when I see I need to, only because I rarely get calls to both phones anyway

I rarely listen to my voicemails if it's a phone number I recognize. I'm prone just to call the person back. I'll typically listen to the voicemail if it was quite a while earlier or it's someone I don't want to or can't talk to at that particular moment (in case it's an emergency).

But I am courteous enough to always get back to the person eventually.

I have not checked my voicemail at work in 3.5 years. I assume it is full.

I don't like voicemail either. I only use the phone when I have to. Guess I don't like the uncertainty of it.

I listen to it, but only because my phone will only ring twice when there are new messages.
I will, however, avoid returning the calls, writing letters, or checking my unread emails. If I could get away with not listening to my voicemail, I probably would.

I used to check my cell phone voice mail, since it was always wrong numbers and the messages tended to be pretty absurd. But I, uh, lost it about a year ago and never got it turned off. I assume its message space is full by now.
