Will FaceTime Ring when Phone is Dead?

There are a lot of questions surrounding FaceTime calls. Will it ring if your phone is dead? What is the reason if the FaceTime disconnects in the middle of the call?

These are the questions many people are asking, and we have the answers for you.

This blog post will try to answer all these questions and more. So, read on to learn everything you need to know about using FaceTime!

Does Facetime Ring if The Phone is Dead?

No, Facetime will not ring if your phone is dead.

  • Your Facetime app must be running in the background for it to work, and if your phone is dead, then there is no app running on your phone.
  • For a Facetime call to work, you need an active internet connection, either through Wi-Fi or cellular data. If your phone is dead, it means that it does not have any power and, therefore, cannot connect to the internet.

The only way to receive a facetime call when your phone is dead is if you have another apple device signed in to your account and connected to the internet, such as an iPad or MacBook.

If you do have another device signed in to your account, the call will ring on that device instead of your iphone.

However, if you do not have another device signed in, the call will simply not go through.

So, if you’re expecting an important facetime call, make sure your phone is charged up!

What Happens if Facetime Disconnects in the Middle of Call?

If you are in the middle of a Facetime call and your call gets disconnected, it might be due to several reasons. But, you can easily identify the reason as explained below:

1. Their Phone is Dead

If you are in the middle of a Facetime call and the other person’s phone dies, the call will be disconnected.

You will see a blurry screen with a pause sign in the middle, which indicates that your phone is off or has run out of power.

If you’re expecting an important call from someone, make sure their phone is charged up! Otherwise, you can try calling them on another device if they have one signed in to their account.

2. Other Person Just Hung Up

When the other person hangs up the call, the call will end immediately, and you will be taken back to the previous screen.

3. Internet Connection Problem

If there is a problem with their internet connection, the screen will become frozen(Not blurry), but the call will not end. In this case, as soon as their internet connection is restored, they will be connected back to the call.


So, in conclusion, FaceTime or any other call will never ring if the phone is dead.

If their screen is blurry with a pause sign in the middle, it means that their phone is dead, but if their screen is frozen, they have lost internet connection.
