Deactivate the Wind call waiting on the mobile phone
To turn off the classic call waiting, the one that plays an acoustic signal when you receive a new phone call while another is in progress, just use some codes to type in the dialer of your smartphone.
To begin with, then, start the dialer, that is, the dialing screen, which is usually represented by the icon of a handset located on the home screen. Then, if necessary, call up the numeric keypad (by pressing on the appropriate icon, which should be at the bottom of the screen), enter the code * # # 43 and press the button to initiate calls, which should be one green handset.
In this way, you will check the current status of the call waiting. In fact, within a few seconds, you will see a message on the screen that will inform you if the service is active or not on your line. If successful, you can proceed to the deactivation procedure.
To disable Wind's call waiting, go back to dialer of your smartphone, call up the numeric keypad (if necessary), enter the code # 43 # and press the button to initiate the call (the handset). Within a few seconds, you should see a message appearing on the screen that the call waiting service has been deactivated.
If you change your mind, you can reactivate call waiting by typing the code * 43 # in the dialer and pressing the button to start the call. More information about this can be found in my tutorial on how to activate call waiting.
