Conference calling, which is sometimes referred to as 'three-way calling,' allows you to carry on a conversation from your wireless phone with two or more people. To add a third person to your call, simply press and release the receive button once and wait for a series of beeps, then dial the number of the third person and wait for an answer. Once the third party is established on the line, press the receiver again to add them to your conversation. Continue this process until all desired parties are on the line. To disconnect, any of the called parties can hang up, allowing you to stay on the line with the remaining parties; alternatively, you can disconnect the last person you called simply by pressing and releasing the receive button. Conference calling also works with call waiting. If you receive an incoming call, you can add that party to your existing conversation the same way. One major advantage of wireless conference calling is that it allows to you to be in contact with several parties, simultaneously, and you avoid having to contact them individually to relay the same information. This feature saves time and money, and allows all involved parties to receive identical information. Your wireless service provider may or may not charge a monthly fee for this feature, but long distance and/or per-minute charges will likely incur for each caller.
