  1. How come if no one answers the call you want to add you have to hit end and lose the caller you started out with? Now you have to call that person back. Where is the flash option? Why would samsung make a phone without that option to be able to end one call and return to your original call???

    1. Hi Dovon F,
      Thanks for coming and leave your thought here.
      Yes you're right, by default when you hit end call button while conference then it will disconnect all calls. I don't know why Samsung set this phone like this, maybe Samsung doesn't want other party simply hang up and disconnect themselves while they on conference calls. Maybe anybody here will tell us another possible reason for this.

  2. I find it to be rude to disconnect the called person just because the 2nd person doesn't join. Shaku

      From what I've known, there are so many peoples out there who didn't like with this default setting that sometimes force them to disconnect all connection when they press End call button while they on conference calls. Unfortunately, this is the setting by default and we can do nothing on it.

    2. Once conference call is in seasion with two additional callers, go to menu, manage conference call, seperate calls, end call you wish to end while continuing call with other party.

    3. Hi Guestparty,
      Thanks for coming and also thanks to share your useful knowledge here. However, may I know what carrier are you using now? Some carrier sometimes has the option or capability that are not owned by the other.

  4. I agree. I use this function for work with an interpreter service and if the 2nd party does not answer when called, I cant call a second number and lose my interpreter. Not GOOD!!!

    1. Hi Katy Stevenson,
      Thanks for coming.
      Try to call your provider to ask them whether the network support this feature or not. Some user said that they finally be able to make conference call once they call the provider and the provider add this feature to their phone.

      Thanks for coming.
      Try to call your provider to ask them about this feature. If they have the capability for call conference, then ask them to enable it so you can make a conference call on your phone.

      Thanks for coming.
      Unfortunately, seems there's no way to end one caller while you're in the conference call because this phone has no option to separate a conference call to private calls(you may have seen this option in iPhone).
