God forbids, if any of your friends or family has been involved in an accident, and your number has been discovered in their belongings. The people would be calling you to inform you about the situation however you do not pick up the calls because it is yet another unknown number. Today we shall describe 5 reasons people avoid unknown calls in Saudi Arabia.
It would be a wrong number
It is general assumption that most people do not answer any unknown call in Saudi Arabia because they think it will be a wrong number, a telemarketer, somebody they were hoping to avoid or someone who harasses them on the phone.
2. They feel comfortable on text messages
It is most probably the best policy; however, when it is urgent, people tend to call you, rather than text. Some people, however, respond to texts on WhatsApp instantly regardless whether it is an unknown number or a telemarketer.
They feel completely comfortable and secure while replying to a text or a WhatsApp message, but they are not comfortable while receiving unknown calls in Saudi Arabia
3. Phone Calls are time-consuming
Many people consider phone calls as being extremely tedious and time-consuming. People can be cold and blunt during a written conversation, they can easily put a disguise, however, an actual telephone call would make that hard or near impossible.
4. They are shy to pick unknown calls in Saudi Arabia
They cannot shut down the callers when they have started speaking, which means that they will just have to tolerate somebody endlessly rants or a very inquisitive relative is going on and on asking about your life.
However, that is not the case in written conversations. It does not also mean that we ought to avoid all unknown calls in Saudi Arabia.
5. Difficult to talk to strangers
Communication by mobile devices such as smartphones and handsets are meant to exchange a conversation between two people, at 2 different locations at the same time. It is not just like this with known people, it is also including those we do not know.
Should we be therefore introducing this flat out policy not to pick up any unknown numbers? The essential aim of having a mobile phone then seems to have been defeated really.
Before we had created the contacts on our mobile phones, we had received their call or call them as unknown numbers. There are several apps in the market which will help you block any unwanted callers.
