I've been experiencing this problem quite randomly. I've asked some friends around who have Android phones as well and this happens to them as well, so my first thought was that this is an issue with Android.

I try to call a number, and without ever hearing it 'ring' anytime, I get a Conditional Call Forwarding Active message and a small beep, and it hangs up. I then re-try, and sometimes the call goes through, sometimes I get the same message. Sometimes, on occasions I have to try 4 - 6 times to be able to make the call. On very rare occasions, everytime I try I keep getting the message, beep, and hangs up. This is extremely frustrating. Any idea how I can look into this?

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy Note 2, stock Android (4.3 as per latest update).


Update 1

This has nothing to do with Call Forwarding apparently. I've disabled it from the Call Settings, and now it still happens, without showing the Call Forwarding activated message.

As strange as it may be, I did find a solution to this problem. I noticed that if I switch data / 3G, the call would immediately go through. I've tried this a lot of times where I couldn't call, switch off 3G and it immediately works.

Also, I've recently switched to CyanogenMod from the native Samsung Android installation, and I don't recall this happening again. Not sure if it is some kind of bug in Samsung's version of Android. I'm also using a more recent version of Android, so that could also be the reason.

  • This is the only thing that worked for me, except in my case it was 4G. Answer is still relevant six years later! On my phone, it was under Settings -> "More" -> Cellular Networks -> "Enhanced 4G LTE Mode". – Nathan Aug 7 at 17:19

If you go to: settings-call-call settings-call forwarding-voice call forwarding -- You will most likely see that for unanswered or unreachable calls it's not disabled because it forwards it to your voicemail, that's why it says conditional call forwarding is active. If you disable all options you won't get the message but then unanswered calls won't go to voicemail

  • Yes, it was switched on. I've disabled it and will see if it does it again. However, ideally I would still have that option because currently using that, my operator can send me a message when I am not in range, that somebody called me. If it solves the problem, does this mean it's an issue of the operator? – Karl Cassar Apr 2 '14 at 9:14
  • the problem wasn't solved. Now it's happening the same, but without the Conditional Call Forwarding active. That message has got nothing to do with the problem apparently, and it is shown everytime a call is initiated. – Karl Cassar Apr 2 '14 at 9:59

When this happened to my Note 4, I had to reboot, which fixed the problem instantly.

    In my case reboot never fixed it. For me, I had to switch off 3G strangely enough and calls went through. Check post marked as answer. – Karl Cassar Feb 23 '15 at 15:58

I deleted my call log, and all my text message conversations, cleared my cache, restarted my phone and now it all seems to work. Hope this helps!

I had a problem where all numbers worked I called then one I called daily stopped working would not ring just immediatly.hang up after I hit call.no beeps no vibrate.no ringing no voicemail nothing.not even a sound then call ended every other service and number worked unlimited plan with my bill paid in full never been late and the phone I'm using is newer I've had it since april no blocking on my end airplane bluetooth wifi wifi calling do not disturb all was off mobile data on cling on no settings messed with contact was made so after checking everything on my end confused cant find answers on the internet download a free calling texting app amd dial the number that's not working only 1 in my case especially if you know that the number your calling would not of blocked you and their phone bill is paid as well if the call dont go through on another number or phone you use it's most likely their phone that's the problem if nothing on your end is wrong amd if it rings on the other number or phone then have the person check your contact their blocking list amd if they hit a button on the contact list it will automatically block numbers without asking or telling you that it was done and sure enough my name had the button clicked they unblocked my name and it works just fine now some services have 2.blocking systems 1 that goes to voicemail amd one that does not allow that number to even leave you a message only a text can go through amd sometimes the.block wont let it go through at all some have access to both others only one like jails u can block the number but they cannot permante.block cutting network because if one person gets a new number then the next person who gets it if they have someone in.jail same.jail same.number it still will be blocked.so the new user can have it turned off so they can use the service but they can permanent block spam.numbers amd telemarketers hope that helps
