We have a group conversation (of 3 friends) on phone, after some time one of us was 'cut off' / 'hanged up' of the conversation. Which of them is more intended for unexpected or non-wished such ending of conversation?

For example, when he calls again to join our conversation, I can tell him:

We didn't notice that you got cut off the call / hanged up.

He may response:

Yes, I'm sorry that the call was cut off / hanged up.


The phrase you are looking for for when a disconnection is not initiated by anyone on the call is

cut off
My phone lost signal and I got cut off.

As opposed to

When the call was finished, I hung up and got back to my other work.

Where the disconnection is intentional.
