Call Waiting lets you know when others are trying to reach you while you’re on a call. When that happens, you’ll hear a discreet alert letting you know someone else is trying to get through. You have the choice to swap the call or to simply call them back when you’re done.
If you are a Plus TV customer, then the Calling Features boost (which includes Call Waiting) is free. If you’re not a Plus TV customer, then it’s just £4.10 per month.
