Default Conference calls using Blackberry BB Pearl 8100

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone tried adding more than two members to their conference calls. I was

trying to make a conference call with 3 members and everytime I tried to add


the third member to the conference I got "The Operation Failed" message.


It didn't let me add the third member to the existing confererence. I looked

up conference call in the help section and followed the directions, still got

the same message.

Does anyone know whats going on with this thing?


thanks,

thanks,
what OS u running? i just tried with 3 numbers and it worked no problem.

the first time ive ever done so many actually, but nontheless, i had 3 people in a conference in addition to myself, no problems.

im using the rogers firmware btw. i dont know if ur using tmobile, but maybe theres a glitch in it?

also, it COULD be a network issue (i.e. theres some sort of error limiting the number of calls you can make and you need to call in to have it fixed for your line)

I am using the default version .42 that was on the Tmobile phone.
I will check with the customer care about the limit on the line, but, now, I think there could a glictch in the OS since I get "The Operation Failed" message.

Default I don't get conference option. Why?

I had an incoming call. I answered it. I received a second call. I am pretty sure on my 7100 that I was able to conference these to calls together. But even when accessing the "full menu" all I had was swap, hold, etc. but no join.

i dont remember exactly how i did it but im pretty sure i had to put all calls on hold, including the last active one, and then join them. maybe you didnt see the join option because you were still in the active call

also, do you have conferencing as an option from your carrier? there are plans out there that dont have this option standard and the carrier's network can disable you from doing this.
