What Does Call Rejected Mean?

Let us take a look at what having your phone call rejected means for you actually. Please read further to learn more about this subject and learn about what exactly “call rejected” means and how this affects you when you may be attempting to place a call to someone.

What Does Call Rejected Mean

‘Call Rejected’ is a feature that you can enable on your phone if you so choose. What precisely does this feature do, and why would anyone want to or need to enable it, you may be asking?

Well, this ‘Call Rejected’ feature is a completely optional setting that will allow you to set your phone so that it will automatically block (or reject) any incoming phone calls from a specific person’s phone number.

What it is typically used for is that it will allow a person who chooses to enable this feature to block any and all incoming phone calls from any callers who have chosen to conceal their own calling number and calling name information from any phones they call.

Why is My Phone Call Being Rejected?

There can be several possible reasons why your phone calls may be repeatedly rejected by a specific phone number that you have been trying to call.

What could these reasons possibly be? When your phone call is rejected by a person’s phone, it is rejected because the person with whom you are attempting to place a phone call to has their phone set to reject any automatically and all incoming phone calls.

1. Weak Signal

If you suspect that the phone you are attempting to call may be having a problem connecting to its phone network, consider the following options. If your phone can still turn on, you must now try to figure out why it is having so much difficulty connecting to the phone network right now.

Use the ‘Settings’ option on your device, your app, your phone, or your web browser (whichever one you are more comfortable using), and now it is time to attempt to answer this question of discovering any helpful or necessary details about your phone’s current network connectivity status and facts.

It could possibly be a problem with the phone’s network connection and not a problem with your phone itself. Have you changed your WiFi password or any of your WiFi login information recently?

If this is the case, you will need to manually enter your new WiFi login information on your phone to ensure that it is able to properly connect to your network and/ or to allow it to connect to your WiFi network or even Internet connection, possibly.

Is your phone able to connect to the Internet now? Are you able to access the Internet on your phone, and if you are finally able to access the Internet now, is your phone behaving properly and no longer displaying error messages related to the weak phone signal?

It could possibly be a problem with the router’s Internet connection and not a problem with your phone which you are attempting to run programs.

You can test whether or not your router is working by checking on a different device (such as your smartphone or smart TV) and seeing if these devices are able to get connected to the Internet.

Have you changed your WiFi password or any of your WiFi login information recently? If this is the case, you will need to manually enter your new WiFi login information on your device to ensure that it is able to connect properly to your router.

Do not worry, and it is very quick and easy to understand the answers to this question. Read further to find out all about Airplane mode and how this could be a possible solution method for the weak phone signal issue your phone is currently dealing with.

Airplane mode is a setting that, when set to ‘On,’ prevents your phone from transmitting any signals. Airplane mode is also an available setting on any type of electronics that has the capability of emitting signals and/ or connecting to the Internet.

Even when your phone’s Airplane mode is set to the ‘On’ position, you still will have the option to enable or disable specific settings, including your Bluetooth connection and WiFi connection.

Is it working correctly now? If it is still not functioning properly, please read on to find out what else you can do to solve this annoying weak phone signal problem.

2. Their Phone Died

Patience is a virtue. If the person you are trying to call is simply not answering or if they are hanging up on you, maybe this is a bad time for them and you will just need to wait for them to call you back whenever they are able to do so.

Fix 1 – Call Them Later

Most people will only experience a very weak phone signal on their phone for a specific reason. The vast majority of the time, a person is unlikely to experience a random, very weak phone signal for more than several hours, depending on the circumstance, of course.

So, maybe give it a couple of hours or more and then simply try to call them again.

It is probable that a person will not keep experiencing an extremely weak phone signal for very long because they will be likely to move to somewhere where they are able to get a phone signal as quickly as they possibly are able to do so.

3. They Rejected the Call By Clicking the Decline Button

If this may be the case, you may want to try to get in touch with this person using a different method.

Fix 1 – Wait For Them to Call You Back

Patience is a virtue. If the person you are trying to call is simply not answering or if they are hanging up on you, maybe this is a bad time for them, and you will just need to wait for them to call you back whenever they are able to do so.

4. They Put Their Phone on Airplane Mode

If the person’s phone is indeed set to its Airplane Mode, the person may still be able to receive and possibly make messages via certain messaging apps that they may or may not have on their phone that can be connected only to WiFi.

This is due to the fact that if the person is actually on an airplane at the moment and they have sent their phone to the Airplane Mode setting, the actual rules for airplane passengers are that they cannot use any kind of cellular connection on their phones.

If the person you are trying to get in contact with has their phone currently set to the Airplane Mode setting, they may still be able to communicate through apps such as WhatsApp and messenger if (and only if) they are able to connect their phone to any available WiFi connection.

This possible solution method is worth a shot because it may just work and you may finally be able to actually communicate with the person who you have been trying so hard to reach.

5. Your or Their Phone Antenna is Damaged

If it is not a software problem, perhaps it is a hardware problem. If none of the above solutions have worked, try these steps. Close all the currently running apps on your phone and restart your Android device.

This should allow it to refresh itself completely and this could possibly get rid of any issues or bugs.

Is your phone frozen and not allowing you to even open up the menu to tap the ‘Restart’ button? You will need to force a restart of your phone. Hold down the power button for several seconds, and it will turn itself completely off.

Wait a few seconds or minutes, and then press the power button to turn it back on. This should solve any remaining problems.

If the weak phone signal issues continue to persist after you have tried the above steps, it is very likely that you will need to go to your local phone store and have them take a look at your phone to check for phone antenna problems.

If there is no problem happening with your own phone’s antenna, then the problem is very possible with the phone antenna of the person with whom you have been trying to place phone calls.

Fix 1 – Repair or Replace Your Phone

So, now you have tried all of the above methods to try to solve the weak phone signal problem, and nothing so far has worked.

The issue is too serious to be fixed by restarting the phone in question or even to be solved by trying each of the above-listed ways.

What are your remaining options at this point? Please see below to find out what you can do now to resolve the weak phone signal problem that your phone is currently experiencing.

So far, nothing we have tried has worked, and your phone signal continues to be very weak. Not to worry!

Having your smartphone repaired rather than going out and buying a whole new one is often the most cost-effective and practical solution to dealing with the problem.

If nothing else has worked, it is time to speak with your phone service provider and schedule the repair.

Be sure to schedule the repair with a professional phone service repair center because they will be specifically trained to work with your device, and they will be able to obtain any necessary parts for your specific phone from the company that manufactures it.

This way, you can be sure you are getting legitimate parts that will be compatible with your particular device.

Contact a certified phone service repair center near you and explain the problem.

You can find the nearest phone repair center by googling the questions or by going to the official website of the company that makes your phone and live chatting or calling a company representative.

You may also email the phone company for recommended repair locations near you. If the representatives and tech support agents are unable to troubleshoot the issue over the phone, you will need to have the phone company repair the phone or the phone’s antenna to solve the problem.

Do not be intimidated. Your phone company will likely do this efficiently, and they will work with you to accommodate your schedule and to work around your needs and preferences to ensure the best possible customer service and repair experience.

6. They or You Have Moved to A Secluded Area With No Signal While the Call Was Ringing

If you think your phone may be having trouble getting a strong signal wherever you are at the moment, you will need to seek out a place where you can get a stronger signal.

The same goes for the person you are trying to make a call to if their phone is getting a weak signal.

Fix 1 – Change Area or Wait For Them to Move to A Better Area

As soon as you have the opportunity, move to a place where your phone is able to receive a stronger phone signal.

Does Call Rejected Mean Blocked?

It is not exactly the same as blocked. You can block certain numbers or people. Call rejected means that the phone is not taking your call because your information is hidden.
