Summary

This article describes how to add a third person to the line when you are on a call.

Solution

What is Three-Way Calling?

Three-way calling allows you to add a third person to the line when you are on a call.

Adding a Third Person to the Call

  1. Place a call to the first party.
  2. Once that person is on the line, press the switch hook/ flash or talk button. The first party is then placed on hold and you will receive a dial tone.
  3. Dial the second number. If the second party answers, you can speak privately to them, or press the switch hook once to create a 3-way connection.
  4. To disconnect the second party, press the switch hook once (the first party will stay on the line). To disconnect all parties, hang up the phone.

Result: You can now talk with both people at the same time.

Note: The switch hook is the button the handset pushes down when you hang up the phone. Some telephones have a flash or talk key you can press instead.

Canceling a Three-Way Connection

  • If the second party does not answer, press the switch hook/ flash or talk button twice to return to the first party.
  • If one person hangs up, you can continue talking with the remaining person.
