Does this happen to any of you? If so, why do they do it?
Strikes me that it's like hosting a party.
You greet each guest as they arrive.
Any conversation that develops is ended when the next guest arrives.
You will get back to them once the party is underway.

But yes, some cell users haven't figured it all out yet, and some people are just busy!
Don't take it personally though.
And that's a disadvantage of a landline, harder to get back to people who don't have a phone with them at all times.
