    Call comes in. You get a notification. Green button = answer and switch to it. Red button = ignore and stay with original caller. Those options will light up on the screen...

    Do you hit green button again to switch back to original call?

    yes. green button will switch back & forth between callers.

    You, on phone with Ethel: blah, blah, blah *BEEP* [it's Lucy. You hit green button, putting Ethel on hold and chat with Lucy]

    You & Lucy: chat, chat, chat.... "Let me check with Ethel." [green button. Lucy's on hold and you're back with Ethel]

    Repeat as long as you got 'splainin' to do.


    Or... you could conference them from the menu.

    On my 8830, when I switch from Ethel, to Lucy, the screen shows that Lucy called. But when switching back to Ethel, it still has Lucy's info. Is that the case for everyone, or am I doing something wrong?

    That a bug with the OS with no fix in sight. RIM developers strike again.

    I can pick up the second call just fine. I hit the green button answer the second call but when I hit the green button to go back to the first call it is always lost. Is there a way to set this up or am I missing something?

    i have a question about the call waiting....how do i know when I have another call coming in?

    I have received several calls while on a call and never hear a beep or anything that I am getting another call.

    So what is the notification then I should be looking for?

    If your plan has call waiting as a feature on it, you'll hear a beep during your conversation and the screen will tell you there's another call coming in and who it's from.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I do have call waiting on my calling plan, but it seems to not be working.

    No Beep, and It doesn't show up on the screen.

    When I end a call it will show that I missed a call and have voicemail.

    I was just wandering if there was anyway to "turn it on" on the phone.

    I even called Verizon to confirm that I had call waiting and they said yes!
