Droid Bionic: Bounce between Two Calls - dummies

Droid Bionic: Bounce between Two Calls

After you answer a second call, as described in the preceding section, your Droid Bionic is working with two calls at a time. In this particular situation, you can speak with only one person at a time; juggling two calls isn’t the same thing as a conference call.

To switch between callers, touch the Switch Calls button that appears on the touchscreen. Every time you touch the Switch Calls button, the conversation moves to the other caller.

To end a call, touch the End Call button, just as you normally do. Both calls might appear to have been disconnected, but that’s not the case: In a few moments, the call you didn’t disconnect “rings” as though the person is calling you back. No one is calling you back, though: The Droid Bionic is simply returning you to that ongoing conversation.

  • The number of different calls your phone can handle depends on your carrier. For most of us, it’s only two calls at a time. In that case, a third person who calls you either hears a busy signal or is sent directly into voice mail.

  • If the person on hold hangs up, you may hear a sound or feel the phone vibrate when the call is dropped.
