Droid Bionic: Configure a Conference Call

Unlike someone interrupting a conversation with an incoming call, a conference call is one you set out to make intentionally: You make one call and then add a second call. Touch a button on the Droid Bionic touchscreen and then everyone is talking. Here’s how it works:

  1. Phone the first person.

  2. After your phone connects and you complete a few pleasantries, touch the Add Call button.

    The first person is put on hold.

  3. Dial the second person.

    You can use the dialpad or choose the second person from your Contacts list or Recent Calls list.

    Say your pleasantries and inform the party that the call is about to be merged.

  4. Touch the Merge button.

    The two calls are now joined: The touchscreen says Conference Call, and the End Last Call button appears. Everyone you’ve dialed can talk to and hear everyone else.

  5. Touch the End Call button to end the conference call.

    All calls are disconnected.

When several people are in a room and want to participate in a call, you can always put the phone in Speaker mode: Touch the Speaker button.
