And if so, why do you ignore them?
Because you're tired, not in a talking mood, don't like speaking to that person?!?! Maybe you have a friend, who rings 20 times a day, half an hour apart, just for the sake of ringing you (you answer the phone and there's an awkward silence, ''Why are you ringing again, I told you 5 min ago I was on the toilet, still on the toilet, what's wrong with you?!?!'')
Also, how do you handle being ignored, for whatever reason?!?! How do you handle the transparent lies you're told...
''Ohhh, I lost my phone/left it at home''
''My phone's broken''
''Didn't hear the phone ring'' (didn't hear it ring... all 20 times?!?!)
How do you retaliate?!

The truth hurts worse than any lie.
Nothing is new with me, and sounds like nothing is new with you due to the long silent pauses. So I won't wrack up any more of my minutes and I'll let you go. I'm going to go back to what I was doing prior to this phone call. Goodbye.
If I didn't answer the phone and they comment/question it next time I do answer it. I'll tell them, obviously what you called about before wasn't important otherwise you would have left me a message. I didn't feel like talking to you (or anyone if that is any consolation) so I let it go.
If the person is really a pain, I'll set them straight. I'm not here for your entertainment. You shouldn't call me if you are simply bored. If you are calling to hang out, chances are we won't because you aren't that exciting to hang out with.
