Summary

Learn how to add a third person to the line when you are on a call.

Solution

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. Press and quickly release the switchhook to place the first person on hold.
  2. Listen for the dial tone.

    Note: If operating on a per use basis, press *71, otherwise proceed directly to step 3.
  3. Dial the third person's phone number.
  4. To make the three-way connection, press and quickly release the switchhook.

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

The switchhook is the button the handset pushes down when you hang up the phone. Some telephones have a Link or Flash key you can press instead.
 

Canceling a Three Way Connection

 

  • If the third person did not answer or you wish to disconnect them, just press and quickly release the switchhook. You will then be reconnected to the person holding.
  • If either of the two people hang up, you can continue talking with the remaining person.
