I don't understand how to combine 2 calls for a conference call. I tried the Merge Call button (from memory, I think that is what it is called), and all it did was put one on hold and connect me to the other person, back and forth, it would not combine the calls.

Does it matter who calls in vs me calling out?

Can u walk me through the steps and are there any surprises?
thanks

    Check the iPhone manual, page 50 http://manuals.info.apple.com/enUS/iPhone_UserGuide.pdf

    From the Manual:

    Conference Calls
    You can talk to more than one person at a time, and merge up to five calls, depending on your carrier.
    Note: Conference calling may be an optional service in some countries. Contact your carrier for more information.
    Create a conference call:
    1 Make a call.
    2 Tap Add Call and make another call. The first call is put on hold.
    3 Tap Merge Calls. The calls are merged on one line and everyone can hear each other.

    There is also a graph there that lets you know about adding and dropping more, but I'll let you read that yourself.

    Hope that answers your question.
