Establishing an additional call

You can establish a further call while there is another call active.

Some cell phones do not support making or accepting a second call. If this is the case, the "New call" menu item is grayed out while there is a call active.

  1. Select "New call" in the call menu.
  2. You then have the following options for entering the telephone number:
    "Dial number":
    The input menu for telephone numbers is opened. To find out more, please refer to the section
    "Dialing a number" on page 55.
    "Phonebook":
    You can insert a number stored in the phonebook. To find out more, please refer to the section
    "Calling a phonebook entry" on page 56.

The active call is retained if the second connection is established.
You can switch between the two calls or hold a conference call. To find out more about this, please refer to the section "Call waiting (swapping) and conference" on page 59.

Call waiting

The "Call waiting" function is only available if supported by the network provider.
The "Call waiting" function must also be activated in the call settings of the PCM or the cell phone. To find out more, please refer to the section "Call waiting (swapping) and conference" on page 59.

Rejecting a waiting call
If you receive another call while there is already one active, you will hear a call waiting tone.
The menu for the incoming call is displayed and a message appears in the bottom line.

  • Select "Reject".
    The waiting call is rejected. The caller hears the busy signal.
    If the caller's telephone number is transmitted, the number or name appears in the "Received calls" list.

Accepting a waiting call

  • Select "Answer".
    The waiting call is accepted and activated. The previously active call is put on hold.
    You then have the option to switch between the two calls or to hold a conference with both callers. To find out more, please refer to the section "Call waiting (swapping) and conference" on page 59.

The PCM will not accept a third incoming call. The caller hears the busy signal or is redirected to the mailbox.

Ending an active call

  • Select "End active call".
    The currently active call is ended and the first call that is on hold is activated again.
