User busy iPhone means… The “User Busy” indication you see when calling someone on your iPhone indicates that the person you are attempting to reach is occupied with another call. You should wait; that would be the finest course of action.

What Does the Message “User Busy” Mean?

When you place a call and “User Busy” appears on the screen while you are talking, it signifies that the person you are attempting to reach is now on the phone with someone else.

Because of the way phones function, you can only get many people on a call if someone calls you.

Priority is given to the current call, and the lines will be ready to receive calls after it is hung up.

Why am I receiving the “User Busy” notification on my iPhone?

You may be receiving the message because the person on the other end of the line is on another call.

A “User Busy” warning may appear from time to time owing to a network issue, but this is uncommon.

If the person you are attempting to contact is using a phone with an alert slider, such as an iPhone or a OnePlus phone, it is possible that they have set the alert slider to mute. However, nine times out of ten, the busy message is because the caller is on another call.

Verify the Recipient Is In fact Busy

You can check to see if the person you are calling is truly on another call before giving up on trying to reach them.

You could try sending them a text and waiting to see if they’ve read it.

If they respond, you will know they weren’t on a call and can try to contact them again.

If you manage to text them, you can also ask them to call you back and leave a message.

Making a Call After Waiting the Appropriate Amount of Time

The best course of action is to wait if you were able to confirm that the person on the other end is on a call.

Wait a few minutes before attempting again if you receive a “User Busy” warning after trying to connect.


As long as you don’t connect, keep repeating the cycle of waiting and trying.


Alternatively, you could simply text them to inform them that you have been attempting to reach them for some time.


For your own benefit, create a “User Busy” message.

When someone tries to call you, you may quickly show them the “User Busy” message if you ever feel the need to.

On your iPhone, enable Do Not Disturb to accomplish this.

Using iOS 15 for this:

  • Launch the Settings app.
  • Decide on Focus.
  • Decide to be ignored.
  • You can choose how you want to receive notifications.
  • Additionally, you can activate it by entering the Control Center and selecting Focus.


From there, you may activate Do Not Disturb.

iOS Versions prior to 14:

  • Start the settings.
  • Go to the Do Not Disturb page.
  • Plan out a schedule for when to activate or turn on DND.
  • You can also do this action from the Control Center by choosing the crescent moon icon in the panel.

Final Reflections

  1. If texting or contacting the person didn’t work and you were anxious to reach them, you could still leave a voicemail without really reaching them.
  2. If you and the person you are trying to call both use the same cellular provider, check out the provisions and features that let you send messages without dialing.
  3. You can set up Spectrum’s Call Guard service if you have a Spectrum Landline subscription and want to block calls or look busy, just like you did with your iPhone.

Questions and Answers

What is the best way to tell whether someone is using another iPhone?

Use the Truecaller app on your phone to see if the other party is on the phone.

Some phones may also let you know when you call them that they are on a call.

How can you tell if someone on an iPhone has blocked you?

Check whether the iMessage texts you sent them are delivered to see whether you are indeed blocked on your iPhone.

You may have been blocked if you send a message and the app reports that it was not delivered despite a good mobile signal.

Through other routes, you can also politely text someone to let them know.

If iMessage is prohibited, would it still say delivered?

The application will indicate that the message has not been delivered if you are blocked on iMessage.
