Isn't it annoying when somebody phones you but hangs up just before you can get to the telephone? Especially when you have had to get out of bed to answer it.
In the UK, we have the number 1471, which we dial after narrowly missing a phone call. When you dial this number, a sexy voice comes on the line telling you what the number of the last person to call you once.
NB This didn't used to work when you were called by a mobile phone, but I believe it does now.
NB If you wish to call someone without revealing your number, dial 141 before dialling their number.
NB Some phones also have a display on which you can the the number of the caller even before you pick up the phone. This is made possible because of CLI or 'calling line information'.
