How to use Three-Way Calling on my Bell Home phone

What is Three-Way Calling?

Three-Way Calling lets you talk with two people in two different locations, at the same time, or talk privately with one party while the other holds. Three-Way Calling is available on a pay-per-use basis (charges apply).

Using Three-Way Calling

  1. Put the first person on hold by pressing the Link or Flash button (check your phone manual if not labelled on your dial pad). Press *71 or dial 1171. Listen for three short beeps followed by regular dial tone.
  2. Dial the number of the second person. When they answer, press the Link/Flash button again to connect all three parties. (You may need to press the button on the receiver, depending on what type of phone you have.)
  3. If the number of the third party is busy or does not answer, or if you dial the wrong number, press the Link or Flash button twice to return to the original call.

Note : You cannot add a third party if Call Waiting is already in use.
