why does a cell phone ring busy when dialed

Customer Question

I called a cell phone number and it beeps continuously busy.

A cellular phone rings busy when dialed usually for one of two reasons:

1. The party being called does not have call waiting activated on their cell phone
2. The network that the party being called is on is either down or the call cannot be properly connected due to interference or very low signal strength.
