The genius behind the mobile phone is that you can receive a call anywhere. I’m not implying that you’ll never miss a call. In fact, some calls you’ll miss on purpose: You whip out the phone, check the touchscreen to see who’s calling, frown, and then dismiss the call, banishing it to voicemail. That happens a lot.
As a type of a computer, your Android phone dutifully keeps track of all calls, not only missed, but those you place and answer as well. Missed calls aren’t sentenced to the digital ether, either: They can visit a place called voicemail. And that voicemail is more than just a “Leave your tone at the message” feature on an Android phone.
