I called you up yesterday, but you didn't answer (the phone)...


Explanation:

Here's the full translation:
"I called you up yesterday, but you didn't answer (the phone). I guess you were busy that time. Anyway, I wanted to tell you.."

Note: I wanted to use " Anyway, here's my story.."
but I chose to translate the phrase in a more casual way.

I was calling you yesterday, but you were not answering. Maybe you were busy. Anyway, my story is .


Explanation:
With respect, the followint should be noted:
Firstly the use of phone or mobile is not mentioned in the original source but it is implied by the context of communication. It would be inaccurate to put 'phone or mobile' in.

Secondly a mobile is a phone, so unless it is explicitly mentioned it should not be used.

tumatawag - calling
sinasagot - answering

Explanation:
This is my translation version: I've gave you a call yesterday but you are not answering the phone/cellphone, maybe you are just busy, any news?

In Filipino we use news in a place of the word story like from the word "kwentuhan" or "balitaan" (mo naman ako) = any news or tell me something.
