The main advantage of telephone interviewing is from the researcher point of view. The number of different people can be reached in a relatively short period of time. From the respondents standpoint it would eliminate any discomfort that some of them would feel less uncomfortable disclosing personal information over the phone than face to face.

A main disadvantage of telephone interviewing is that the respondent could unilaterally terminate the interview without warning or explanation, by hanging up the phone. Called ID might further aggravate the situation. This is understandable given the numerous telemarketing calls people are bombarded with on a daily basis. To minimize this type of no response problem, it would be advisable to call the interviewee ahead of time to request participation in the survey, giving an approximate idea of how long the interview would last and setting up a mutually convenient time.

Interviewees usually tend to appreciate this courtesy and are more likely to cooperate. It is a good policy not to prolong the interview beyond the time originally stated. As mentioned earlier, another disadvantage of the telephone interview is that the researcher will not be able to see the respondent to read the non-verbal communication. Interviewing is useful in data collection.
