Hi,
I noticed weird problem with Nexus 5/ 4.4.

Whenever I make a phone call and if the the receiver is busy (line engaged) it is impossible to hang up the phone straight away. First it give untraditional busy tone and then if I press hang up the tone won't go away at least for next 10secs and impossible hang up until phone it hangs up it self after 10sec. I'm sure lots of people must be having same problem.

Please advise.
Many thanks

Here is the bug report for this. From what I am hearing it may be carrier dependent but could also be a hardware issue.

Most phones will respond this way - this isn't a "new" problem. Perhaps 10 seconds is an extremely long time and it doesn't make sense why you're getting that kind of time, but standard 2-6 seconds is common. Typically what happens with these phone lines is when you call a number and receive a busy tone in response, the transaction is metaphorically grabbed and held onto in the attempt that the called line becomes free again.

Perhaps with Android 4.4 or the Nexus 5, a newer technology has been integrated which is causing long times in this case. I have not experienced this but it sounds frustrating. When this happens - are you calling a land line or mobile device?

Hi,

Doesn't matter whether I call mobile or landline. I tested both and same problem. And its really really frustrating.
I know it might take few secs to hang up with other phone but not this one unbelievably long and I hope thisnt hardware issue. Already exchanged this one previous n5 came CPU faulty (posted on my previous post)
