THREE WAY CALLING

Use this feature to create a three way call. When this service is assigned, you can place a three-way call using the flash based services.

While engaged on call:

Press flash hook on phone. The initial call is placed on hold.

Enter complete phone number or extension of third party. You can press # to signal the end of the phone number.

When third party is connected, press flash hook again. All parties will then be connected in three-way call.

To drop the third party caller, press flash hook again.

If either two parties hang up, your call with the remaining party is intact. If you disconnect, the other two parties remain connected.
