How would visa officer verify the phone numbers? In all our phone logs, when I called my spouse I called the cell phone. We haven't listed that number in any of the forms. Is that an issue?

officer may ask you his number, you should memorize his cell, home and office numbers. sometimes they call that number to confirm.

Our officer was not worried about stuff like that.... we have called from calling cards for the past 2.5 years, i just made a copy of the calling card and sent it with my fiance so they could see what we were using... the past 1 year we have been using something called IndiaLD, and it only cost me between 5 and 15 dollars a month to call him pretty much as much as i want... i sure with i would of found this a lot earlier...

but dotn put to much worry in to these things... good luck

Not sure if it's different at your Embassy, but we had no phone records at all. I never really call my wife. I wouldn't worry about it.
Just as a caution, a great many things are unique to Manila and don't apply elsewhere. Manila has been described as "handing out visas like candy." In stark contrast, the Indian consulates are very tough. Try not providing phone logs there or at other tough consulates, and you can be kicked out with a 221g (if you're lucky) or an outright refusal of the visa. Edited by TBoneTX

ya, phone logs are looked at for DCF'd casefiles, as the two spouses live together in the same domicile. Who calls their spouse, when they wake up together in the same bed every day prior to the IV Interview?


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Do you have a thread link? Or could you start one?
Nope; it's subjective opinion that's periodically been expressed. Nothing formal.
