Tips

  • If a friend has a conversation with you and adds someone else, this creates a three-way conversation. You can then just hang up, allowing the other two people to continue talking.
  • On some mobile phones, a three-way call is also called a conference call.
  • You may also be able to call other third parties by pressing the button you normally hang up for two seconds, listening for a ring tone, and then adding a third person to the call.
  • If you can't quite figure it out, read your phone's manual for more information.

Warnings

  • Three-call or conference calls will cost you extra in some areas or on some plans.
  • When you connect with someone and leave the call, this ends the call.
