I received the call on my cell phone but it kept repeating. Why?

Sometimes when there is background noise, the system misinterprets a live person for an answering machine. When this happens, it will continue to wait for the answering machine’s beep followed by a brief moment of silence before starting to play the message from the beginning.

You can prevent the message from repeating by minimizing background noise or pressing mute on the phone.
