Lumia 800 call waiting

Hi,

 

with other Nokia phones , when I called someone who was already on another call I got a notification saying "You are on Call Waiting". So I knew whether or not that other person was on another call everytime I called them

 

but on the lumia 800 it does not do that how can i get it actived

Re: Lumia 800 call waiting

i don;t think its a nokia thing.. this depends on the network operator of the person u're trying to call.. for some networks they give a double beep thingy for some they play a recording "that the number you have dialed is on another call"  or something to that effect..

 

hope this helps.. :smileyhappy:

Re: Lumia 800 call waiting

I've tried the follows on Vodafone and it's works :

Turn call waiting on or off
1. Find "Phone"
Press arrow right to access the main menu.
Press Phone.
2. Turn call waiting on or off
Press the keypad icon.
To turn on call waiting.
Key in *43# and press call.
To turn off call waiting:
Key in #43# and press call.
A request to turn the setting on or off is sent to the network.
3. Exit
Press the Home key to return to standby mode.
Hope will help you.

Try dialing *43# from your Lumia 800. It will enable call waiting. You will get a message saying "succeeded". This works for GSM network.

Re: Lumia 800 call waiting

Hi tyekhan

 

I understand exactly what you mean and this is a phone behaviour. Some of them notifien when the other one is with another call. Unfotunately my Nokia Lumia 800 does not provides this information. Other brands and models... some of them have this feature. However I don't really know how important it could be.

 

Maybe you could ask for this feature before buying a phone. As far as I know it is not possible to enable/disable this feature in any phone.

 

Kind regards

Re: Lumia 800 call waiting

Simple solution. Goto settings-->network+ --> call settings --> set. You have option to call waiting and call forwarding...
