    Ringing, then busy signal?

    Made a call today and it rang 3 or 4 times, then I suddenly got a busy signal. This was calling a T-Mobile customer who I know had the phone on and has voicemail.

    What's weird is that when I got the busy signal it did not show me as "connected".

    What the heck happened?

    Sounds like a routing issue between carriers to me.
    If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

    It's not a matter of if you win or lose, it's how you assign the blame

    It's likely the voicemail system was flooded with calls at that moment, or was otherwise temporarily unavailable.

    When I was with T-Mobile I used to do that to people all the time. You set the "conditional call forwarding" to "none" (instead of the normal voicemail number), and then when you reject the call the caller goes from ringing to busy. Wonderful way to make someone really mad at you!!!
