Using the Call waiting function, Service 43

When you are making a telephone call, your line is busy. Configure your telephone so that a second caller can use the call waiting function in this case.

How call waiting works

If a second call comes in while you are making a telephone call, you will hear a signal (call waiting). You can...

  • ignore the new caller. Then his call will be rejected after 20 seconds.
  • terminate the existing connection (hang up the receiver) and take the waiting call (pick up the receiver again). You will be notified about the waiting call by an urgent signal for 10 seconds.
  • pause the first connection (parking) and take the second call. After you terminate the conversation with the second caller, you can continue with the parked call.
