A friend of mine answers the phone during football games by saying, "Hello, the game is on, who is this?."

I just yell, "Whos on the bell?", in an abrasive English accent.

If it's a male friend, "yo."

If it's a female friend, "hey."

If it's my girlfriend, I don't say anything and wait for her to talk. This has caused her to hang up on me when she thought her cellphone was being weird, more than once.

If it's an unknown person, "hello?"

If it's an unknown person, I'll say "Hello?". Often with an unintentional grumpy tone. If there's a reason to use my full name, I'll answer with that.

For most of my frequent-calling friends I have specific ways of answering. Like, "Hi this is Mike from the appliance repair service. I'm just calling to say that your washing machine is ready and that you can pick it up any time now.", or something along those lines.
