Phonecall terminates without busy signal
I occasionally experience the bug on the S3 during calling.
Sometimes, when I start the call and my phone rings for about some random seconds 5-20 sec. the call gets silently terminated.
It doesn't provide a busy signal or anything it just hangs up the call. I assume that it happens when the other side cancels my phonecall
during when their side is ringing. I have the 4.0.4 replicant build.

How exactly is this an issue? The phone call is supposed to get terminated when the other end hangs up and it doesn't go to voicemail, right?
Do you have any reference of another behavior that should happen, for instance from CyanogenMod? If so, I'll look into it.

Hi Paul !
It is an issue because I don't get the correct signal. For example:
I am calling someone and the call is silently being terminated, it just does "click" and hangs up without any kind of voice signal (like beep-beep-beep busy tone). Keep in mind that I don't reach the caller to hear their voice, the call is ringing on the other side for random time (maybe 1-7 times), then it gets dismissed on my side with the "click" tone and no signal. Later I get called from those parties who are either telling me "Hey you called me 3 times and I was busy" or they'd say "Hey you called 3 times and I replied and there was no answer from you", because after the phone does "click" I don't know either the other party "received the call and answered it" or either they do a busy-signal or something else, so it is kind of annoying because I keep on dialing after that happens... Sometimes I keep dialing 3 or 4 times, until the phone-connection is actually established so that I can really talk with the other party and sometimes when I dial their side doesn't ring at all and the phone instantly does "click" and hangs up. If they are actually giving the busy-signal and don't want to pick up the phone and it does just "click" on my side, then I would keep on dialing them presuming that I couldn't reach them and it is probably annoying, because they have to cancel the call each time which keeps them disturbing.
I don't use CyanogenMod so don't know how that behaves.

I can confirm that with 4.2 0003 there is a similar issue, but this time when I call the other person, the phone just does "click" and hangs up after maybe two/three seconds, so it's impossible to tell if the called person is in a conversation (because there is no busy tone signal) or if the phone cannot sync with the base station or something (I don't know about that), because I place the call and it just clicks and ends the call. This time it doesn't even ring for a few seconds anymore. IT DOESN'T APPEAR VERY OFTEN, but when it does I just keep repeating calls and maybe on the other side, my call just gets canceled. It would be "good" if there would always be a busy tone signal before the actual dropout of the call.
