Third time in as many days I have been hung up on MID sentence.  Is it something I said? Each had different questions and none were about price.  Not rattling on, simple questions with simple answers.

It can't be my breath or food stuck in my teeth. 

This is our sloooow season so not many calls coming in at all so I wonder too if something is wrong with my phone. 

Frustrating.

I have a lovely i phone and it periodically hangs mutes itself.  Not, it's not my cheek, it even happens when I put earphones in. 

I bet it's a technical problem that has people "hanging up" on you

My mom used to call from your neck of the woods and her phone would always go dead.

Might be the caller's phone, too -- particularly if they are calling on their cell phone from an area where their carrier doesn't have good coverage.

My understanding of dropped-call etiquette is that the person who initiated the call should be the one to re-establish the connection --- but if they haven't called you back within a few minutes, I would probably go ahead and try calling them (assuming I thought it was a potentially fruitful call!)

The first two, no I did not.  I felt they both may have gotten the info they wanted and decided we were not for them.  This last one I did try. I felt differently about this one and the particular question/answer was not one that I would think would be a real cause for what I call a RUDE way to end a call. 

So I thought, my phone could have been the reason... did my cheek hit the end button?  But when I called back it was an office and I had no idea who it was I was speaking with so I said I must have the wrong number.  C'est la vie!

I'm just curious if you call them back?  Do you think it was done intentionally, or the phone call was just dropped somehow?
