Hi, I'm sorry for any confusion or misunderstanding. The system automatically asks if you want a phone call. You do not have to accept a phone call. You only pay a certain percentage which is normally about 80% off to 90% off of my regular hourly fee. You don't have to pay anything in addition to that. It's just $5 to post your question and then you're charged the remaining money, usually only about 36. $46, after that and no more. Would you like to continue?
