You don't answer. You leave an awkward silence until they decide to say something or hang up.

"Hello" and then wait for them to say their name.. if they ask who I am I tell them "You phoned me" usually they stammer and say they have the wrong number after that.. oh and I also screen calls most of the time

"Hello?" in a friendly manner.

Then if you recognise the person, go on.

If not, say "I'm sorry, who's speaking?"

Then go from there...

Don't.

Phones can't talk, so answering one's "question" will only make you seem crazy.

I always say:

"Hello, this is the _______ of the _________ family. Kindly state your business." and I smile even though I know they can't see me.

That reminds me of an episode of Amazing World of Gumball lol

I answer with a generic, friendly Hello. I should get more creative.....
