You may not notice when you call on a number you listen a beep sound multiple time. If you hear sound multiple time it is a normal thing but when you call and listen to ring only a single time then it is clear something is wrong such as the person stands in weak signal zones, or busy on another number or your number is blocked.
3. Automated responses
Another reason that indicates the block of your number is during the call you get a response from the sim provider company that “the user is not available”.
