What is call waiting/call holding?
Call waiting is a feature on your mobile phone wherein you will be notified of incoming calls (through beep or series of tones) while in another call. This feature allows you to place the existing call on hold and answer another call.
All the latest model of mobile handsets already has this feature pre-installed. All you have to do is enable it from your mobile phone.
