How to activate Call Waiting Three standard

For your information, thestandard call waiting is that service, offered by both Three than from other mobile phone operators, which allows you to receive phone calls even when you are engaged in another conversation. I'll explain better what it is.

If, for example, your line is already engaged in a telephone conversation, you will receive an audible alert indicating the arrival of a second call, together with a "special" video notification, by which you can choose to ignore the new incoming call. , continuing the previous one; to accept the new call, putting the previous one on hold; or to accept the new call and terminate the previous one at the same time. Those who call you will find, however, the free line, even when you are engaged in another phone call.

At present, the service is completely free, does not include additional costs and can be activated in at least two different ways: by using operator codes, or through the appropriate menus on Android and iOS. Below I'll explain everything in detail.

By code

The easiest way to activate call waiting Three consists in using the appropriate codes provided by the operator.

So, in order to activate call waiting on a line Three, first open the dialer phone (i.e. the dialing screen) and, after calling up the keypad, dial the code * 43 # and start the call by tapping the button in the shape of handset.

After a few moments, you should receive a confirmation message that call waiting has been activated: starting from this moment, if someone tries to call you while you are engaged in another conversation, you will receive a sound alert. In addition, you will have the possibility to accept the call (putting the previous one on hold) using the screen that appears on the mobile.

As already mentioned above, when call waiting is active, users who try to communicate with you will not know that you are on another phone call and will hear the classic "free" signal.

If necessary, you can deactivate call waiting again by entering the code # 43 #, or view the status of the service, this time typing the code * # # 43. More info here.
