Call Failed instead of Busy Signal

I was driving home the other day and everytime I tried calling a certain friend of mine on his home phone, it would beep twice and then display "Call Failed". I could call other numbers without any problems, but when I dialed his, it would beep twice and show "Call Failed".

When I got home, I tried him again from my iPhone and still got the message. Then I tried calling him from my home phone and it gave me a busy signal (he doesn't have call waiting). Once his home phone was no longer busy, I was able to call him from my iPhone.

If you call someone from your iPhone and their line is busy, does the iPhone always give you the "Call Failed" message instead of letting you hear the busy signal?

in my experience with cingular, yes, you will always get call failed instead of a busy signal.
