Hello?

My boyfriend is from Germany and he always answers his phone by saying his last name. Some folks here in the US do that too but its not as common, most of us answer with "hello?". He told me that in Germany it is considered rude to answer with "hello?". While I can understand that point to a degree I still never really thought of it as actually /rude/, just inconvenient.

What do you guys think?
