For many it will be surprising but it is true in India! Often, a person calls on his friend's cell phone and cuts before he picks up. Most of the times it is a 'mutually understood act!' The reasons for that range from saving money to simply notifying someone.
Example: Say, A tells B that once he reaches the venue, he will give B a miss call so that B should understand that A has reached. There is no need to talk or to text because the purpose is just to notify that A has reached! Simple and witty!
Now, on the cellphone of B, it is surely a missed call as it reads '1 missed call from A'. Because it is recent past...so it is 'missed'.
But, I wonder in this case, what do we use?
Okay, when I reach the venue, I'll give you a 'miss or missed call?'
It is a future tense where the call is 'yet to be missed!' That way, it should be 'a miss call,' but my instinct still says it should be 'missed.'
