[cont'd] feedback on this one. Whilst the results feature shows the time the call was made it doesn’t seem to show when an answered call was ended. Calls are either listed as unanswered and therefore unsuccessful or answered and successful. I can only assume that when the likes of me slam the receiver down in frustration within a nano second we’re ticked off as a great success.
I think this type of system probably has its place if a local or national emergency needs to be transmitted to a great number of people very quickly. Unfortunately the vast number of businesses using it means that if you’re like me then you’ve either stopped answering your phone unless you recognize the number or you slam it down the second you realize it’s a recording. It’s a shame because if someone hits the red button by mistake and the doomsday machine goes up I’ll be none the wiser. At least I won’t lose my train of thought for a few more seconds though.
