Several situations can cause one’s phone to go straight to voicemail, continue ringing without answer or deliver automated messages. The phone is turned off, or the Do Not Disturb feature is enabled. (S)he forgot to pay his or her phone bill and has had service disconnected.
“The simplest way to tell if you have been blocked by an Android user is to call,” Lavelle says. Just like with an iPhone, listen for it to be diverted to voicemail or play you a pre-recorded message.
If the battery is dead, then it is impossible for it to ring. If the phone is off, it won’t ring either. If you only have the screen turned off (like when you press the power button once), it will ring.
Often, if you’re calling someone’s phone and it rings only once then goes to voicemail or gives you a message saying something like “the person you have called is unavailable right now,” that’s a sign the phone is off or in an area with no service.
If the phone is off, you will not be able to receive calls, the calls will go straight to voicemail and the person calling will have to leave a voicemail..
