If someone calls your phone number while you’re on a call, Call Waiting allows you to put someone on hold. Call Waiting is enabled by default and currently, it cannot be disabled.

  2. To hang up on the person you’re currently speaking to and switch to the other caller, press the CALL button on your handset and then dial 1.

Please note that dialling *69 is not supported for NBN™ Phone. However, handsets with a built-in call return function will work. Standard call costs apply.
