    Can someone please explain how the call waiting works on the Droid???? If I am on a call and I get another call, then I am able to answer it no problem.....When I go to hang up on the calls, the system hangups on both calls every time....if I don't end the call, then the other called will stay on hold until both calls are ended....Anyone else have this experience? Thanks again for any information!!

    I'll answer this as best I can, and the really smart people can tear it to shreds ;)

    In short, it's a limitation/nuance of CDMA, the technology that Verizon (& Sprint, & Alltel) use for their voice networks. What's "really happening" when you switch between two calls is:

    * The caller "on hold" will still show as "on hold" even if they disconnect.
    * If you hang up, and the "on hold" caller has disconnected, the call is done
    * If you hang up, but the "on hold" caller was still there...
    - you'll (shortly) get an incoming call, usually from "unknown"
    - answer it, and the "on hold" party will be reconnected to you

    I'm sure there's a more elegant way to explain that... but it's not a Droid-specific issue, I've dealt with this all the way back to analog phones.

    cheesehead007 - Thank you very much for your reply. I guess that makes sense...Coming from my BB Curve with Verizon and other keypad based phones I used send to answer call waiting and toggle back to the other caller....I never got the call from "unknown" until I got the DroidInc....I just hope I am not being charged extra minutes somehow from Verizon.

    Yes, just look at the screen and click the number/name to switch to that line

    You can toggle between calls without an issue, but if you try and hang up on a selected caller you can't. There is no way, the phone will hang up both calls every time.

    I found a similar issue with making a conference call. I had two people on the line and one of them put me on hold and it put on hold music. I was unable to drop them so me and the other person had to talk over the music.

    Yea basically this phone kicks a$$ for the most part, but as far as an enterprise solution. BB has all manufacturers beat. Now I would like to figure out this call waiting issue, because I have not been able to toggle between callers and end certain callers without hanging up on all....anyone that can confirm a first hand solution would be greatly appreciated....Thanks again.
