I was in my hall and heard my brother's mobile phone ring, but as soon as he could come upstairs, the phone stopped ringing.
What term/phrase is used when the other person disconnects before you pick up the call?
I usually say
The phone got cut
But I'm aware that this is wrong
I can't use disconnected either because it is normally used when the person is in the process of talking
I was talking to my friend and the phone disconnected
So how do I tell this? I'd like a more formal way of saying it
