3. 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.

4. The caller dialed a wrong number

This is another good reason why you may be having the problem of phone rings twice then hangs up especially if it doesn’t happen very often.

The incoming call you saw on your phone was a mistake, the caller must have mistakenly dialed your number and having realized he or she dialed a wrong number, the call will be ended right away.

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.
