And *EVEN MORE IMPORTANT*: DON'T SET VOICE ALERT WHEN NOT PRESENT AT  
THE RIG, ABLE, AND WILLING TO ANSWER CALLS.

How I do that is switching between two memory channels based on  
whether or not I feel like answering calls.

And of course it never hurts to try 146.52 if you see a nearby mobile  
(on a GPS screen if so equipped).  I had a nice QSO last week as a  
result of giving a call on 52 after seeing their station icon.  I  
encourage people to also monitor 52 simplex if not monitoring a local  
repeater (the D700 makes this rather easy to do - I typically keep  
one side on 144.39 and the other on 146.52).
