You saw an incoming call on your mobile phone, and after one ring the call abruptly ends. You saw that as a cut and maybe the problem is from is from your mobile phone or your service network provider.
However, there are more to know on this issue of incoming call cuts after one ring.
You’re not alone in this type of issue as I myself have seen this happen a lot to me.
This article explain all you need to know on the reason why you’re having an incoming call cuts after one ring on your mobile phone, and be it on android or iPhone.
Incoming call cuts after one ring
This usually occurs when a caller abruptly hang up a caller before a recipient or the person whom he or she is calling answers the call, caused by a volte network issue or probably it is a scam call.
It is also caused when someone mistakenly dialed a wrong number or you have enabled incoming call barring on your phone.
I delved into this problem of incoming call cuts after one ring trying to understand why someone will dial my number and ends the call after one or two ring before I will answer the call.
Some of the reasons why this occurs are stated below;
1. It is a scam call
A typical example of a scam call is to ring once or twice and boom cuts the call. You as the recipient will see it as a missed call or your incoming call cut after one ring, but please be careful because it is likely to be a scam call.
As long as you don’t know the mobile phone number, please do not call back else your phone may be hacked by the caller or probably the scammer.
2. The caller dialed a wrong number
This is one major reason why you are seeing incoming call cuts after one ring on your mobile phone.
However, this is so if you happen to see this occur once for a particular contact on your mobile phone. If it happens very often, it wasn’t a mistake but someone is doing it on purpose.

2. The caller wants you to call back
This is very weird and annoying but it does happen, someone trying to save his or her minutes and instead of calling you, he or she will pretend to call you and end the call after one ring just for you to call back.
Normally you will see this type of call as a missed call on your mobile phone, and this type of call won’t go to the voicemail because the caller didn’t allow the call to ring complete before hanging up.
Definitely you will see it as a missed call and call back immediately not knowing that the caller is being mischievous and wanted you to call so as to save it’s phone minutes.
Honestly I see this as someone being weird and same time stupid.

Before concluding that yes truly you have barred incoming calls on your android phone, you must confirm it first.

4. Incoming call cuts after one ring caused by a volte network
If you have a mobile phone that supports the volte network, this is likely to be the culprit of incoming call disconnects after one ring.
To confirm that truly the problem of phone rings once then cuts off is caused by a volte network, you have to get another phone and dial your number.
If the call cuts after one ring, open the settings app and go to the mobile network or connection depending on the type of phone you’re using.
In the mobile network section, you will see volte call though it depends on your service network provider and the type of phone you’re using.
Now if you have seen that the volte network is enabled on your phone, kindly disable it because it is most likely to be the cause of the problem of incoming call cuts after one ring.
