Activate or deactivate call waiting

When call waiting is activated, you can hear and answer a new incoming call while you are on the phone.

Follow these instructions to activate or deactivate call waiting on your Apple iPhone 4S.

Please note that if you are a Pay as you go customer, you can activate call waiting and hear when you have a second call. You can only answer the new call, however, if you end the ongoing call.

  1. Find Call Waiting
    Press Settings
    Press Phone
    Press Call Waiting

  2. Activate or deactivate
    Press the indicator next to Call Waiting
    Depending on the current setting, the function is activated or deactivated

  3. Exit
    Press the Home key to return to standby mode
