    Just got my first Blackberry and while I am very happy (switched from Treo) - although I'm have some sound quality issues (but that is a different topic). Anyway, I'm wondering if I may have missed something, but I was looking to place a call on hold earlier today and did not see anyplace to do that. From looking around, it seems as though some OS's offer a "hold" function, but 4.7.1 doesn't??

    Have I missed something?

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Press the mute button?

    Unless you expect music to be playing while on hold, mute does the same thing, right?

    While the music on hold would be a nice option, its not really what I'm looking for. I guess mute works just about the same. Like I mentioned, I was coming from a phone that had both mute and hold coupled with seeing some BB's have a seperate hold option while mine didn't.

    yes, my Tour came with a user guide and it didn't mention anything. Thats why I figured I'd ask here.

    So what did the Treo do on hold that mute won't do on the Tour?

    Same issue here with a Sprint on AT&T. Who knows? In the meantime, found this to work:

    Key in the following codes and press call on your mobile to switch Call Waiting/Hold on or off.

    Activate: *43#
    Deactivate: #43#

    To put a call on hold: dial 2 and press send.
    If you receive a second call, to switch between two calls: dial 2 and press send; or press Menu and choose from alternatives (hold or ignore).
    To disconnect from one call and return to a call on hold: dial 1 and press send.

    No clue on how to join in an incoming call to a conference call. Any ideas?

    Depending on your wireless service provider and wireless network, this feature might not be supported.

    1. During a call, press the Menu key.
    2. Perform one of the following actions:
    • To answer the incoming call and place the current call on hold, click Answer - Hold Current.
    • To answer the incoming call and end the current call, click Answer - Drop Current.
    To return to the first call, press the Menu key. Click Swap or Flash.
