We know that when someone watches the film they get a call that says

"You have 7 days"

What if the person doesn't answer the call? Is the person going to die anyway ?

    This thread suggests that Noah didn't pick up the phone but still died after watching the video. – Longshanks Feb 14 '17 at 12:18

Yes they would

According the TV Tropes page on The Ring, where this is addressed:

Noah watched the tape but did not answer the phone when it rang for him. He heard the phone ring and asked Rachel if she was going to get it. He still died.

    He got the message another way though, from the bellhop. – Valorum Feb 14 '17 at 12:24

    @Valorum so maybe the rule is "the message will arrive another way, and you'll still die". – Darael Feb 14 '17 at 16:24
