    This is a stupid question, but I never had it right on any phone. I can figure out complex things, but:

    When I answer a call waiting, how do I switch back and forth between the original conversation? Do I press send? Is there any way to conference other than Google Voice?

    The blurb below is from the Eris manual. This is for 1.5, however I expect it's very close the the same (if not exactly the same) on 2.1.

    Handling multiple calls
    Your phone notifies you when you have another incoming call, and
    gives you the option of rejecting or accepting the call. If you are
    already on a call and accept the new call, you can choose to switch
    between the two callers.

    1. Press the CALL button
    to accept the second call
    and put the first call on

    2. To switch between callers,
    tap the person you want
    to talk to on the screen.

    3. To end the current call
    and return to the other
    call, tap End call.

    Oh, yeah forgot to answer the other question.
    This is also from the 1.5 manual.

    Setting up a conference call
    1. Make a call to the first conference call participant.
    2. When connected, press MENU, tap Add call, dial the number of
    the second participant, and then tap Call. The first participant is
    put on hold when you dial the second participant.
    3. When connected to the second participant, tap (merge).
    4. To add another participant to the conference call, tap on the
    conference call screen, and then dial the number of the contact
    you want to invite to the conference call.
    62 Using Phone Features
    Note The conference call is put on hold when you call another contact.
    When you are connected to the other contact, you can talk to that
    party in private.
    5. When connected, tap to add the participant to the conference
    6. When finished, tap End call.
    Note Not all mobile phone networks support conference calling. Contact
    Verizon Wireless for details.
