Conference calls are a great way to talk to everyone you need to speak to at once. Although they were once the domain of the business world, they are increasingly common for connecting family members who are all in different locations. Here is the guide to explain how to make a conference call on the Nokia C7.
Basics of a Nokia C7 Conference Call
- Call the first person that you’re going to include in the conference call.
- After they answer, ask them to hold on and press “options”.
- Press “new call”.
- Your first call is automatically put on hold.
- Enter the number or contact name of the second person you want to add to the call.
- When the person answers, ask them to hold on.
- Press the conference call icon (it looks like the outline of three people together).
- The calls should be merged.
- Repeat that process as needed to bring additional people into the conference call.
Things You Can Do During the Call
- You can end the entire conference call at once. Just press end to hang up the phone as you normally do.
- You can end the call with only one party but keep talking to the other(s). To do this, select the icon that looks like a person with a menu of options behind them. Select the name of the participant that you want to end a call with. Then choose the proper icon. It looks like two people standing together with one off to the right side that is slashed out. That person will be hung up on (hopefully you said goodbye) and the rest of the call will continue normally.
- You can choose to speak to only one person in the call without letting the others hear you. To do this, select the icon that looks like a person with a menu of options behind them. Select the name of the participant that you want to speak privately with. Select the proper icon. It looks like the aforementioned icon with the slashed out person except there is no slash through any of the participants. Pressing the icon takes you and the person you’ve chosen into a private conversation. If there is only one other person in the call then they will be on hold but if there are two or more then they will continue the conference call without. When you’re ready to return to the conference call press the three person conference call icon.
