What is the difference in failed call and no answer. I have noticed when I call a friend most of the time it goes to "call failed" immediately. Sometimes it take a while and says no answer. They are showing unavailable. When the available light is on, sometimes it says no answer, when they answer it get a beeping before they answer.

    I'm guessing here, It may be possible when you are calling them they have no signal. That may be why it goes to fail immediately. No answer might be because they are on the line with another call. Does it ever go to voice mail? If so is it immediate or after a few rings?
