Spam calls – cellphone cuts off

I received a spam call which did not leave a msg. So I called back the # 3 times. And 3 times my cellphone ended the call before the spammers phone rang? How are spammers now able to disconnect a persons cell phone when they dial the #? Is this a network or a software issue?

    Many times some persons have your numbers through various means/they are just calling every number in a particular area code sequentially. You can try whitepages caller id (an app) to identify spammers as they are calling in real time. Or please link here for one more good app, like truecaller.

    Thank you for the suggestions. But do you know what causes my cellphone to end the call immediately when I return the spam call. I called it 3 times and every time the call ended without me manually ending the call. Is there a way that spammers can intercept network to end the call.

    It's possible the number is spoofed to a non existing / disconnected line for the sole purpose of preventing you from calling them back.
