Hi there! Next, which one of these two terms, " pick up the phone" or " answer the phone" is more common? An example can be: X: Hey, it's Marie here, do you wonder why I'm calling on your landline number, hm? Why don't you " pick up your mobile phone"/" answer your mobile phone"?
Y: Uhhh, I guess I left it at school. Thanks in advance! Hi Tenacious Learner, Yes, these two sentences do mean the same thing in this context. "Pick up the phone" is very commonly used to simply mean "answer the phone". I will mention, though, that the first option could theoretically just be communicating that he picks it up (but doesn't necessarily answer it; he might, for example, throw it on the ground in anger after picking it up while it's still ringing), whereas in the second option it is explicitly stated that the phone is answered.
I'm just nitpicking here, though! A reader of the "picks it up" sentence would assume that he is answering it unless some other information which indicates otherwise is given. Hope this helps
when your best friend don pick up the phone - Don't pick up the phone or Don't pick the phone?
Modern Bill and WHM Autopilot I dont know which one to pick. I cant say that I have picked both but I have used Modernbill and I really do not like it at all. Theyre support is horrible and they never seem to help me with any issues that I have and just tel me to upgrade over and over again to fix a common problem.
I dont have time for it anymore. Who do you guys recommend?
