Topic: Cause codes from network.

Cause No. 1 “unassigned (unallocated) number” (UMTS specific cause values for call control)
This cause indicates that the destination requested by the mobile station cannot be reached because, although the number is in a valid format, it is not currently assigned (allocated).
Cause value = 2 IMSI unknown in HLR (Causes related to MS identification)
This cause is sent to the MS if the MS is not known (registered) in the HLR. This cause code does not affect operation of the GPRS service, although is may be used by a GMM procedure.
Cause value = 3 Illegal MS (Causes related to MS identification) This cause is sent to the MS when the network refuses service to the MS either because an identity of the MS is not acceptable to the network or because the MS does not pass the authentication check, i.e. the SRES received from the MS is different from that generated by the network. When used by an MM procedure, except the authentication procedure, this cause does not affect operation of the GPRS service.
Cause No. 3 “no route to destination” (UMTS specific cause values for call control) This cause indicates that the called user cannot be reached because the network through which the call has been routed does not serve the destination desired.
Cause value = 4 IMSI unknown in VLR (Causes related to MS identification) This cause is sent to the MS when the given IMSI is not known at the VLR.
Cause value = 5 IMEI not accepted (Causes related to MS identification) This cause is sent to the MS if the network does not accept emergency call establishment using an IMEI.
Cause value = 6 Illegal ME (Causes related to MS identification) This cause is sent to the MS if the ME used is not acceptable to the network, e.g. blacklisted. When used by an MM procedure, this cause does not affect operation of the GPRS service.
Cause No. 6 “channel unacceptable” (UMTS specific cause values for call control) This cause indicates the channel most recently identified is not acceptable to the sending entity for use in this call.
Cause value = 7 GPRS services not allowed (Additional cause codes for GMM) This cause is sent to the MS if it requests an IMSI attach for GPRS services, but is not allowed to operate GPRS services.

Cause value = 15 No Suitable Cells In Location Area (Cause related to subscription options) This cause is sent to the MS if it requests location updating in a location area where the MS, by subscription, is not allowed to operate, but when it should find another allowed location area in the same PLMN.
NOTE: Cause #15 and cause #12 differ in the fact that cause #12 does not trigger the MS to search for another allowed location area on the same PLMN.
Cause No.16 “normal call clearing” (UMTS specific cause values for call control) This cause indicates that the call is being cleared because one of the users involved in the call has requested that the call be cleared. Under normal situations, the source of this cause is not the network.
