Dropped Call Etiquette

January 21, 2009 at 9:54 am 3 comments

I’m instantiating a new guideline to follow for cell phone calls that are dropped.  To avoid both parties calling each other at the same time only to get each others voicemail (since both phones are attempting to make a call, incoming calls go directly to VM), I suggest that whoever initiated the phone call should be the one to call back.  The dual callback posses so many issues – how long to wait before I try to call you back, repeatedly calling until I can get through, and even waiting to call back somehow always backfires with both parties calling at the same time.

So I say to you now, if you are the initial caller, it’s your duty to call back if your conversation gets cut off.

    I would think its the initial caller for that session.

    M: I call you, leave voicemail.
    T: you call me, i answer

    Yes, this is only in regards to the call that was dropped. Whoever called to initiate the DROPPED call should be the one to call back.

    The voicemail part is once the call is dropped, and we both try to call each other back, we go straight to VM.
