    No I dont, nor do I answer with held numbers or 0800/0845 ones either.

    In fact if I dont recognise the number I dont answer the phone.

    Sometimes if I'm at mine but people who call on private annoy me, why not use your number if you need to talk to me that urgently.

    I don't think you should answer. As someone might try to identify your details by pretending to be someone else you know. If it is a stranger hang up. If it isn't a stranger just ask for their details.

    When I got phoned by a private number I panicked everything was n't the same. I scream ed for my mum for help.
