- While on a phone call with the initial call participant, tap the ” + Add Call” button, then use your contacts list to find the number for the additional party you wish to include on the call. (Or you can simply dial the number of the new participant.)
- The original caller will be placed on hold while the second number is called. Once you are connected to the second party, tap the “Merge Calls” button. This will add the new party to the initial phone conversation.
- Repeat the above steps to add additional parties to the conference call.
- If you’re already on a call and another party calls you, tap the “Hold and Answer” button that will pop up on the screen and then tap the “Merge Calls” button to add the new caller to the conference call.
