Presence technology is going to be an integral part of the next generation of communication technology. It can eliminate telephone tag between two parties (caller and callee), which will increase productivity of the parties and reduce unnecessary bandwidth usage of unwanted calls. In this paper, we propose a Willingness Estimator that computes willingness level of a callee for receiving calls from a specified caller. By knowing the willingness value of the callee the caller can decide on proceeding with the call or not. The proposed Willingness Estimator is tested with real mobile user data, and these results are highly accurate. We measure willingness based on calling patterns (arrival time, location, day) of a caller to a callee and this could serve as one of the future presence based services. The results can be used in telecommunication networks such as PSTN, Cellular networks, and Voice over IP networks.
