3 Way Calls

I have the A700 and have a question. If I make a call or receive a call, then get anoter call, I know how to switch back and forth between the two by pressing talk, but how do I hook both calls up for a three way call? Can't find anything in the manual about going 3 way when you already have both calls going? Anyone know how on the A700?

Thanks for your help.

3-way calls work the same way on every phone (minus the button you push to flash between the two calls) on some home phones you use a flash button to go to your "second" line. on most other phones and i believe all cell phones, you press the talk button. so to answer your question, you cant. you must be on the line with ONE person, hit the talk button, dial the number and press talk, after 1 ring press the talk button once more and it should be a 3-way call. hope this helps!

Bottom line- You CANNOT connect two lines that have an existing call with.
So if you get another call, tell them you will call right back and conference them in that way. Sprint does not allow you to connect all 3.

lol I know I hate when my girl brags about that... i could be on the phone with her and one of her female friends calls and she just 3 way her in like that. And if she's in a 3 way convo if someone else calls her she can click over and talk to them!!!, normally for most other carriers its a busy signal and we cannot receive any more calls.....

Its alot of things i notice that other carriers can do.. When i try to record a phone conversation using my voice memo it only records the other person talking and not my voice. And with most nextels you an record a full conversation and save a few of them....

Yep. It's awesome. My phone even shows little thumbnails of each caller on the line and who is on hold, who is active etc. You can merge calls and drop each line independently. And texting on the phone is awesome with a handsfree headset.
