My phone service is VOIP through Comcast/Xfinity and, for the most part, I'm satisfied with it. But I keep having a recurring and troubling problem with the other person breaking up after about one hour; usually more than an hour, sometimes a little less. Can anything be done? [more inside]
I've gotten a pair of phone calls that seem too weird to be unrelated when they're so close together but I can't make head or tails about what it could mean. [more inside]
I (30) met this woman (35) at a work-related meeting ten days ago. We were in a small group (2 men, 2 women), and chatted briefly. Among a few other things, she asked me if I was married and had children (no to both). She is divorced and told us (most of the interaction was with the group) that she was on her own, and had to work really hard to support herself and her two young children. She seems a very loving mother, in addition to an attractive and easygoing person. Before leaving she asked me (and the other guy) for our email addresses and told me she would send me a facebook friend request. This didn´t mean much in itself, as we might conceivably need to get in touch for work-related issues. Later that evening I see and accept her fb friend request, and we chatted for a few minutes.

When you make a call to a service or business, say, you're calling because you have a problem or require a service -- what do /you/ say? [more inside]
Is it possible to stop unwanted phone calls when it seems no one is on the other end? The call is coming to our landline (home phone), and we don't have caller id, an answering machine, or any kind of special machine or service that can identify or filter out the calls. This has been an ongoing issue for a few weeks. [more inside]
How do I keep my sanity while waiting for a phone call from my maybe future landlord about whether or not I get to rent her house? [more inside]
A man might be cheating on his wife, but it definitely isn't with me. His wife says my number is on his phone records as having incoming and outgoing calls with his phone. Is it possible for my phone number to show up on phone records for a phone I've never called? Also, is it possible this is somehow connected with the fact that my debit card has been compromised?

This question is for women who have used online dating : What are your most common reasons for breaking off an email exchange with a man who you met through online dating? Also, once you have given the man your phone number, and he calls you, what are your most common reasons for not returning the phone call? [more inside]
How do I keep track of my business phone calls? I'm looking for a program, preferably freeware or open source, that will help me keep track of the people calling/emailing/contacting me, why they're contacting me, when they contacted me, how to contact them, when I should contact them, and if I've contacted them. Preferably it would allow for multiple call-backs in case we get into an extended game of phone tag. Right now I'm using a notebook, but something on the computer would allow easier changes. Googling's failed me, since I'm not even sure of the right phrasing to use.
When receiving an incoming phone call on a cellular phone, is there any way to differentiate between in-network and out-of-network?

"I want my phonecall!" In movies and on TV shows, the protagonist/antagonist always asks his jailers for his "one phonecall" to a lawyer. Do you really only get one phonecall? Do regular people really have a lawyer's number on them? How's this all work? (I'm not in trouble, promise)
Bzzzzz. You know those Radio Shack devices for recording phone calls? When I hook one up to a tape recorder, it works fine. But it's the damndest thing: hooked up to my computer, it buzzes. Is this an electric grounding issue, or is there something I'm doing wrong?
