    Angry Missing Call Waiting Option

    iPhone 5, did all my updates and resets.

    Settings > Phone > Nothing (No call waiting option(s) )

    I'm so frustrated. When I'm on a call, it sends any incoming calls straight to voicemail.

    Any suggestions?

    This is all it gives me:

    What would iPhone have to do with services? That would be Verizon. Check your services on line at Verizon and you should see call waiting there. I can't believe you don't get call waiting with the iPhone.

    Hmm, I have VZW and checking my Settings>Phone I see no options for call wait listed, but just now checked and I definitely DO have call wait. My wife called me, while talking to her I used my office desk phone to call my cell. Immediately I hear a BEEP on my cell, looking at the screen I am offered two options: "Ignore" or "Place on Hold and take call". Ignore sent the office phone to my voicemail. Hung up and repeated, this time I pressed option for "place on hold and take call". This switched the call to my office phone. At that time I have several screen options: "swap" as well as "merge calls" and others that my "old brain" can't recall at the moment. But I did note that the "merge calls" option was dimmed out and not available. I'm assuming that was for 3 way calling. I'll look into this further to explore 3-way calling options.

    Bottom line on call wait though is a positive, for me at least, on my new iPhone5 and VZW service. I actually like the way the option is presented by the way! Best to be on speakerphone so that you don't need to lose voice contact while pulling the phone from your ear to view your options...

    By the way - I do see (in settings) the option to turn "TTY" on or off. Can anyone explain what that is? Touch Tone Yippie??? Hee hee. Seriously - I don't know what that is for, but by default it is "off" on my phone as purchased new.

    TTY = Text Telephones. It is the protocol used by the hearing impaired to handle phone calls with someone that is speaking.

    Call waiting is a service independent of all cell phones. You should never find a setting for it on any phone. Please call Verizon (*611) from your iPhone, it is a free call, and ask the service rep to activate call waiting on your line.

    Sorry I should have clarified that there are NO Verizon Wireless phones and I am very sure no US phones that have a call waiting setting.

    In the US it is handled directly by the Teleco and has since the day it was brought online.
