When a mobile phone call drops out, the ensuing attempts to call each other back on both sides results in endless straight-to-voicemail calls, engaged signals, more dropouts... it's just useless.

Adapted from the term "war of attrition", in which both forces wear each other down over a long period of time, resulting in little success for either.
Nick just dropped out; I'm trying to get ahold of him for the fourth time, but it's just a call of attrition at the moment.
