There are multiple calling errors that you may face while trying to call someone. One such popular calling error that you may get is ‘The person you have called is temporarily not available.’
But what does this mean, and how can I connect with someone if I get this error when calling them? If you are worried about the same, this article will help you with it.
Let’s see what are the reasons behind facing this error and how we can get rid of it:
Reasons Behind Getting ‘The Person You Have Called Is Temporarily Not Available’ Error
This is a common error to be encountered when you are calling someone. But what does this error mean, and why are you getting it? This issue can be encountered due to the following reasons-
1. Person Outside Network Region
This is one of the most common reasons why you may face the ‘The person you have called is temporarily not available’ error. This can happen when the person you are trying to call is in a region with low network reception.
For instance, if the person is on a trip to a forest area, there are very high chances of low network reception.
2. Phone Powered Off
If the person’s phone is powered off, then also you will hear this prompt while trying to call them. Many people prefer turning off their phone before going to sleep, or if their phone has turned off due to low battery, you will get this voice prompt when calling them.
3. Airplane Mode Turned On
Another common reason why you may get this error is airplane mode enabled on the person’s phone. Airplane mode blocks cellular network connectivity, and if this is enabled, the person won’t receive the call, and anyone trying to call them will hear the voice prompt saying ‘The person you have called is temporarily not available’ error.
4. You Are Calling Answering Service
If you get a call from customer care or any company’s number with an automated answering service and try to call them back, then you will face this issue. You cannot call such an automated answering service but only get a call from them.
5. Person Has Blocked You
You cannot call the person if they have blocked you. You will hear one ring, and then you will hear the prompt ‘The person you have called is temporarily not available.’’
6. Number Is Unassigned
If you are trying to call an old number, then the number is unassigned. But what does this mean, and how does this happen?
If the number is old and the person hasn’t paid the bill for a very long time, the network company will disable the service, and their number will be unassigned.
It means the number won’t be assigned to anyone until the person tries to get it back or is purchased by anyone else.
What Can Be Done If I Am Getting ‘The Person You Have Called Is Temporarily Not Available’ Error?
If you are facing this issue while trying to call the person, there’s nothing you can do. You will have to wait for the person to turn on their phone or get back to a high network reception area.
But if it is urgent and you want to connect with the person right now, you can text them over some social media network if you are friends.
If you are friends with them on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, or any other social media platform, you can message them or even call them there. However, you must both be connected to a Wi-Fi network or have activated cellular data.
