How to Make a 3 Way Phone Call
Sometimes when you are talking to another person you find the conversation is about a friend who neither of you have seen in a while. You can get this person on the phone right away so he can talk to both of you by using the three-way phone call feature.
Advise the other person that you will call the third person and activate the three-way calling feature.
Place the existing call on hold by depressing the "flash" button located on your phone. Your existing caller is now on hold.
Depress the phone on/off hook, if you phone does not have a "flash" button. Depress the phone hook and quickly release it so you do not disconnect your caller. This will place that call on hold.
Listen for the dial tone.
Dial the phone number of the person you want to add to your three-way call. When the person answers tell them you are going to hold a three-way call.
Press the flash button now and all three people are on the call.
Click the phone hook quickly if you used this method. Make sure you do this quickly to avoid disconnecting your parties. All three people are now on the call.
Tips & Warnings
- If you hang up at any time, you disconnect all parties from the call. However, if one caller hangs up, you and the other caller are still connected.
- If one person says they are going to hang up, there is no way to know for sure if they did. Avoid having a conversation with the other person that you would not want this person to hear. Hang up and call the person again to ensure privacy.
