How To Activate Call Waiting In Samsung (Android 10)

Call Waiting is a feature in Samsung devices that makes a sound if you get a call when you’re already on the phone. You’ll usually get a beep during a call that should indicate a new call coming in. During this time, you can either answer the new call or keep it waiting as long as you activate Call Waiting on your Samsung ahead of time. 

Answering the new incoming call will place the first call on hold so make sure to let the first caller know to avoid being rude. Enabling call waiting on your Samsung is usually enough but some carriers may require additional support from them. If you seem to be having an issue with call waiting not working even after you’ve activated it, let your network operator know.

This guide will show you the easy steps to set up Call Waiting feature. Check out the steps below.
