How to Make Conference Calls on the Phone
In life, we have to constantly switch from one task to another, so it is not unusual that sometimes we have to maneuver between phone calls.
Not uncommon, you need to call two different people on the same issue, and then switch between them during negotiations or other communication.
During the conversation, you receive a call from the person with whom you need to chat. Based on this, you put the conversation with the first person in standby mode, speak with the second, and then return to the first party.
From time to time, you need to chat with two separate people in the form of a conference at one point.
In a simple world, switching between different calls or organizing a conference call requires a special telephone, or even a whole telephone system. But in the world of the iPhone, such things are done in an elementary way, and in an amazing way.
The process of jumping from one call to another is simple, and transferring the conversation to standby mode to answer an incoming call is within the power of the child. There is nothing complicated, too, in order to organize a conference on the basis of an incoming or outgoing call.
At the first call, iPhone displays a screen of options (Fig. 3.4). To make another call, press the Add call button, and then use the program to dial the desired number.
At the end of how you connect to the second subscriber, the options screen changes: at the top of the screen appears the name (or number) of the first subscriber, next to which is written NOA (Waiting), and below you see the name (or other designation) of the second person, and the duration of the conversation. A new view of the screen is shown in Fig. 3.5. To switch to the waiting party, press the Swap button. iPhone puts the other person in standby and returns to the first. Congratulations! Now you have two conversations activated at one moment.

Ignore. Select this option to send an incoming call directly to voicemail.
Hold Call Answer. This option allows you to put the first call on hold and answer the second, incoming call. In this case, you again work with two calls, on the basis of this you have the ability to press Swap (Switch) to switch between interlocutors.
End Call Answer. Select this option if you want to end the first conversation and answer an incoming call.
From time to time, you need to at one moment speak with both of your interlocutors, in other words, arrange a conference. To do this is elementary: the Merge calls button. The iPhone will merge the two calls into one, and later display Conference on the top of the screen. Press the arrow and the iPhone will show the names of participants (or their numbers) on the conference screen (Fig. 3.7).

From now on, you have a couple of ways to manage your conference.
To talk privately with one of the participants, click on the green Private button next to his name or number. The phone puts the other party in standby mode.
To disconnect a participant from the conference, press the red icon with the image of the phone to the left of his name or number, and then End Call to end. iPhone will disconnect this subscriber, and you can continue communication with another participant.
To add a participant to the conference, press Back and you will return to the selection screen when you call. Press Add call, and then dial the desired number. When your new caller picks up the phone, press the Merge calls button.
To add an incoming call to the conference, press Hold Call Answer. When the connection is established, press Merge calls.
Managing multiple calls was never a hassle! iPhone perfectly organizes calls and allows you to easily switch between interlocutors, make or disconnect them, and combine calls to organize a conference.
