    Has anyone tried the 2nd call feature on the Treo 50? Can you hangup on only one person, or is it still like the Treo 600, where you had to hang up on both?
    Thanks, Matt

    I could be wrong here, but isn't this whole issue due to Sprint's network rather than the Treo itself? I don't think GSM users had this issue.

    I know a lot of people have griped about how Sprint Treo's handle 3-way calling (hang-up all, etc) but I think this was a result of Sprint itself, not the Treo. Could be wrong though...

    It was something in the ROM. With Sprint, if you're on one call, make a second call, confrence, and then hit talk one more time, you can hang up on the second call. At least that's how it worked with regular cell phones.

    May help... not call waiting specifically, but this is from the P1 chat:

    Nov 09 11:53:43 <PalmOne> The Treo 650 supports party-to-party calling, as well as three-person voice conferencing. The software allows the device to switch between callers without dropping the call on the party placed on hold.

    This item was specifically brought up at the Dallas roadshow.

    The P1 rep told the audience that it was a Sprint problem. The feature works fine on the GSM models.

    He did not have information on wether it was going to be fixed on the 650 ?

    This works with the Treo 300, and it probably works on all sprint phones with call waiting.

    Just press "hang up" on one of the callers, leave the phone alone for 20 seconds or so and the second call starts ringing back to you - the caller does not get hung up.

    I was the one that asked that question @ the dallas show. I should have asked will the screen turn off while talking on the phone for a certain amount of time.

    How do you hang up on one of the callers when the button says "hang up all"?

    The button is wrong. :-) If you follow those directions, you indeed do not hang up on the person who is not on the phone.

    I thought it was a Sprint only deal, didn't know. I know about the above work around, but wanted a true fix. Somepeople get confused with the call-back, even after you warn them.

    I have not seem a post about this, so that it why I asked.

    So the answer is still unkown, correct?

    Thanks everyone!

    Though the answer may be officially unknown I have a hunch it will be handled the same way on the 650 as on the 600.

    It was answered officially at the Dallas roadshow. It is a CDMA specific issue and will be handled as on the 600.

    not only is it a CDMA thing, but I think this is how landlines operate as well.

    When you say "some people get confused", are you referring to the phone owner (us) or to the person on the other end of the line?

    As far as I know, the person on the other end of the line just hears "quiet" and does not even hear the phone rining.

    But I agree - a more integrated/more streamlined solution would be better.

    I would like to get the specifics as to how this is a CDMA thing. So anyone with the details on that please share and enlighten us. A Samsung SCH-8500 I used to own on for several years on Sprint PCS handled call-waiting the same old tried and true way several of my land-line phones handled it, so I find it hard to believe that it's a CDMA thing. Looks like we'll have to wait and see how the 650 handles it.

    same as on the 600

    Sad that it handles it the same way.

    Anyhoo, still waiting to get the details on how this is a CDMA thing.

    Well, I own a GSM Treo 600 and I can confirm that the issue also exists for GSM Treo 600's. Once you have more than one person on the call there does not seem to be a button to press to drop one caller without dropping both.

    This is missing functionality in the Treo 600 implementation of multiple callers, and it's pretty amazing and disappointing that PalmOne weren't aware of the problem at the roadshow. I was hoping this would be fixed in the 650.

    There is however a workaround

    Most people say they hear the phone go dead and don't know what to do, I guess I could warn them, but it's a..well it's not very streamlined.
