In the not-too-distant past, three-way calling was a feature called conferencing and was available mostly for business users at a high cost per call. Now, three-way conferencing is available as a feature from most local service providers for home phone service.
Some of the applications for three-way calling for home service include party or other event planning, business calls taken at home, reunions of friends and coordination of schedules between multiple family members. It saves time by accomplishing in one call what would have normally taken two calls.
To use the three-way calling feature for most services, simply dial the first number, press the switch hook, dial the second number and press the switch hook one last time to connect all parties.
