How Do I Use Call Waiting On My SGH-i616?

Last Update date : 2017.06.01

While on a call you will hear a tone when another call is coming in, also the handset will show Call Waiting on the display screen. Press the Accept soft key, or the green talk button, to place the first call on hold and answer the second call. To return to the original call press the Options soft key and select Swap; this will place the second call on hold. To ignore the second call, press the Reject soft key.


Note: Call waiting must be activated to take advantage of this functionality on the SGH-i616 handset.


To activate call waiting follow the steps below:


  1. While in standby mode, press the left soft key for Start
  2. Select Settings
  3. Select Phone (1)
  4. Select Voice Calls (2)
  5. Select Call Waiting (1)
  6. Select to activate Call Waiting
  7. Press the left soft key for Done to save the Call Waiting setting changes


Tip: For those calls where you don’t want to be interrupted, you can temporarily disable Call Waiting by pressing *70 before placing your call. Call Waiting is automatically reactivated once you end the call.


Note: Call waiting service must be enabled on your account with your service provider to take advantage of this functionality on the SGH-i616 handset. Please consult with your provider for information regarding any additional fees that may be incurred.
