    Some people block their number when they make calls. I guess they don't want people to get their number?

    BTW, Hi!

    Actually, if the caller ID information isn't received it will also say Blocked, which can happen if there's an issue with the cell signal as well. Is it all calls that cut off or just some of them?

    If it's some, it's probably a signal issue, if it's all, that sounds more like a really weird hardware issue you may want to have looked at.

    In the UK, any caller who dials 141 then the phone number comes through as blocked, even if they are in your contacts, if when you answer it, it drops and you don't connect, chances are its a multi call. This is when a computer dials 10 numbers and the first to answer gets through, the other 9 are just dropped on answering.......these calls can be traced and banned by BT
