Call waiting (swapping) and conference

The "Call waiting & conf." function is only available if supported by the network provider.
When using the Bluetooth® hands-free unit, this function is only available for a limited selection of devices.
A prerequisite for this function is that there are two calls, one of which is active and one of which is on hold (inactive). To find out more about this, please refer to the sections "Establishing an additional call" on page 58 and "Accepting a waiting call" on page 59.

  • Select "Call waiting & conf.".
    You now have a number of options:

Swapping between the calls (call waiting)

  1. Select "Swap".
    The system swaps to the other call. The previously active call is put on hold.
  2. Select "Swap" again to return to the call on hold.
  3. To end one of the two calls, select "End call 1" or "End call 2". - or -
    Select "End all" to end both calls.

Conferencing the two calls

  1. Select "Conference".
    Both calls are activated and connected so that all parties can speak to each other.
  2. Select "End all" to end the conference.

Making an emergency call

  1. Press the button.
  2. Select " ".
  3. Select "Emergency call".
  4. Select one of the two menu items in the emergency call menu that appears:
    Yes
    If you select "Yes", a connection is established to the rescue coordination center.

    If you select "No", no emergency call is made. Instead the previous menu is opened again.

An emergency call can also be made:

– without having to enter a PIN,
– while the SIM card is being checked as well as
– without a valid SIM card (depending on the country and network).
If your vehicle is equipped with a navigation system, you can access the current location information in the event of an emergency call. For that purpose select "Location info".
