Last Updated on September 13, 2022 by Kennedy
When it comes to rejected calls, this is very much common on samsung phones and other devices, and the question is what does call rejected mean.
As this is the very first time you’re seeing such term on your phone call log, this is what comes to your mind as to what the terms means.
I will explain all you need to know whenever you see rejected call on your call log especially on samsung phones.
What does call rejected mean?
A rejected call simply means when a recipient ends a call without first answering the call.
For example, if a recipient sees an incoming call on the cell phone, instant of tapping on the green button which means to pick or answer the call, the recipient taps on the red button which means to end the call.
Now when such happen, on the recipient phone what will be displayed is not incoming call, canceled call, etc, but rather rejected call. And this means that you the recipient rejected the incoming call on your phone.
Below is a typical example of what I’m talking about and which shows rejected call on a samsung phone.
Looking at the above picture you will see rejected call as it appears on the Samsung call log. This will not show up on the callers phone but rather on the recipient phone.
On the callers phone, what will be shown will be outgoing call because it the call was outgoing or initiated on the phone even though the recipient ended the call without picking or answering the call.
So whenever you see the term rejected call on your samsung phone or any other place, kindly know that it means you rejected an incoming calls on your phone.

Does Rejected call means ignored?
The straight answer is yes. Rejecting a call simply means that you don’t want to answer the call especially a that very moment.
Maybe you found yourself in a meeting or somewhere and which you wouldn’t want to be disturbed, you decide to reject every incoming calls or a particular incoming call on your phone.
As long as you didn’t answer the call and instead pressed on the red button to end the call, you have ignored the incoming call.
Will the caller know of the rejected call?
The answer is yes. The caller will definitely find out especially on multiple calls if you keep rejecting the callers calls.
If a call ring for 10 seconds or three time and ends immediately, it is an indication the recipient is rejecting the call and if it occurs on multiple times.
Call a number and it says call rejected? This occurs if the recipient is ending a call without answering or picking up the call.

Is call reject the same as blocking?
Th answer is no. Call rejevf is not the same as blocking because on call reject the call went through to the recipient, but in blocking the call will never get through to the recipient.
IN CALL BLOCKING:
Once you have been blocked by the recipient, the calls will never get through to the recipient as you will be redirected straight to voicemail if the recipient has an active voicemail on his phone. If the recipient doesn’t have an active voicemail, then the call will show user busy and end immediately.
Once you’re blocked by the recipient you won’t see call rejected on your call log.
When it says call rejected, it simply means the call went through to the recipient and which the recipient rejected the call by tapping on the end button without answering the call.
Looking at the explanations, you will see the difference between blocked call and rejected call is that blocked calls never went through to the recipient, while rejected calls went through to the recipient.
How can I tell if someone rejected my phone call?
To tell if someone rejected your call, if the phone ring for few seconds or one to three times and ends immediately without going to voicemail, it means the recipient rejected your call.
If a recipient phone is switched or offline, the calls will not ring as incoming calls will be redirected straight to voicemail if applicable. Even if the recipient phone has no active voicemail, the phone will never ring as the call will end immediately or say that the recipient phone is switched off or call not available.
If you call someone and the phone ring but ends immediately or abruptly with the recipient answering the call, and it occurs on multiple occasions, indeed the recipient is rejecting your call.
Remember that you won’t be notified if someone rejects your call but rather it will only display on the recipient phone. But with what I have explained, you will know when someone is rejecting your call.
Why does a call get auto rejected?
A call gets auto rejected when a phone is set to automatically reject a call on a given mobile phone.
Usually, you can set auto reject call on your phone for all calls or for a particular call but it depends on the type of phone and app you’re using as not all phones has the auto call reject.
Please do not set auto reject call on your phone as it will prevent incoming calls on your phone, better still use do not disturb mode to redirect the calls to voicemail.
What does rejected voice call mean on WhatsApp?
Rejected voice call on whatsapp means the recipient ended the whatsapp call without answering the call.
Rejected call on whatsapp means the all went through to the recipient phone, it rang but the recipient ended the call without answering. Once such happens, what will appear on the phone call log will be rejected voice call.
This is only available on whatsapp for ios as you won’t see such term on whatsapp for android.
