Samsung Galaxy S4: How to Enable and Use Call Waiting in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

Call waiting is a feature that can be found in Samsung Galaxy S4.

  2. Tap the Menu key and then select Call settings.
  3. Tap Additional settings.

  2. Tap My device tab.
  3. Tap Call.

How to use the call waiting feature?

  3. If you want to answer the second call, tap and hold and then drag it to the right. Then, select from the following options:
    • Putting the first call on hold: select this option if you want to answer the second call and put the first call on hold.
    • Ending call with the first call: select this option if you want to answer the second call and end the first call.
  4. If you have answered the second call and put the first one on hold, you can swap between the calls by tapping . It'll put the second call on hold and activate the first call.
  5. If you want to end an active call, tap .

As a note, the call waiting option may be disabled or unavailable in some model numbers of Samsung Galaxy S4. Thus, if you don't have this option in your phone, then you can alternatively enable the call waiting feature by dialing a specific code that you can get from your mobile service provider.
