Happens to me from time to time as well. I believe that I must have lost cell signal when the call was coming in.

could be a bunch of different possibilities most of which aren't because of your device. You could have the number blocked in your phone which would send a call straight to voicemail. Mostly its due to network congestion. either the tower your connected to is overloaded or if you're moving, when your signal is handed over from one tower to another, there may have been a connection issue.

How often do you reboot your phone? I used to never reboot and my phone never ring but would have voicemail messages. Started rebooting often and that issue has dang near gone away.

There is a new technology that goes direct to voicemail, called "Ringless Voicemail". My company uses it to advertise events.

The other day I was using my phone surfing the web when I got a voicemail. I obviously had signal, and I have never blocked a number. I chalked it up to AT&T service.

I am on AT&T. I frequently receive a call that I may not answer because I am in a meeting or whatever, and plan to call back when I am free. Then 30-45 minutes later a voicemail shows up from that call. How does that happen that the voicemail does not immediately follow the call???
