Call waiting and Call forwarding issues

Call waiting/Call forwarding is not working

Call waiting

This service allows a customer who is already conversing with another party to be informed by a call waiting tone of 15 seconds duration that another call is waiting. He can then choose one of the following:

-Ignore the new call.
-Terminate the call in progress and accept the new call.
-Hold the original call and accept the new call.

A ringing tone is sent to the calling customer. The new call will be rejected if no action is taken within 15 seconds. The two calls are entirely separated and secrecy is provided in this state.

In the held configuration, the customer can switch between the two calls as many time as he needs, or terminate the call in progress and initiate the held one.

  2. If nothing works do this :
    Send an sms R CW to to the number 1010
    You will now receive a confirmation SMS that the call waiting has been activated.
    Now dial *43# which will perfectly activate call waiting.

  3. I really like your take on the issue. I now have a clear idea on what this matter is all about.. best call blocker for landline
