    I've never figured out how to do this, but never gotten around to asking before. After you make (or receive) a second call, is there any way to hang up just one of the calls? As of now, the only things I can do are swap, conference, or hang up all.

    As a side note, sometimes when I hit the green phone button during the call, it goes to the main phone screen, but sometimes it switches to another mode on the call screen. (I can't make it happen at the moment, so I can't remember the name/what changes... "target mode"?) Anyone know anything about this?

    Thanks.

    You can't hang-up on the other caller. We all think it stinks too, but that is what we are stuck with.

    Doesn't pressing the backspace key serve to terminate the current call you're on, after which you get "called back" by the other call? I seem to recall this being the case with my T600...

    Just tried the backspace thing but it didn't work.

    What I have found to do for me on my Treo 650 (Unlocked GSM) is to use the 5-way navigation buttons to highlight the on-screen hang-up button for the ACTIVE call that I want to hang up with, then push the center 5-way nav button. This action hangs up the ACTIVE call and resumes me with the OTHER caller on 'hold'. Works EVERY time for me.

    Yup, this is a problem. I just hope that my other call is correctly disconnected (sometimes I "hang up on all" just so I know the other call is disconnected).

    I don't know about GSM phones, but the only option for me on my Sprint phone is to "Hang Up All"...obvisously yours is different???

    If the other caller hangs up, are we still getting billed for the 2nd call?

    I would assume that it is different, since people on Sprint and Verizon seem to not have the option. I believe Sprint changes the UI of the phone to suit their needs/wants/desires, while an unlocked GSM (unbranded) phone is in the state that PALM designed without any carrier changes to the subsystems or UI.

    I believe it's a "network issue" on CDMA. It's been discussed before:

    I have a 650 on Verizon. I just "hang up all" on the call I'm on, and the call on hold will automatically ring back after a few seconds.

    I've tested this a few times, and it works.

    The latest VZW firmware (1.4) says that they've improved the interface for handling multiple calls at once. I'm waiting until many others have upgraded before doing mine, but perhaps one of the early adopters can tell us if there's any improvement in this department...

    Progress? Well, at least I can get color traffic maps now...

    This is the same problem with POTS lines, is it not? If you're on the phone and get a call-waiting call, you can't hang up on the second call; just "click over" and hope the second caller hangs up, too. Otherwise you won't be able to accept any more calls because you'll still be on both until you terminate the original call. If the second caller never hung up, say they got a call-waiting call, too, then your phone is going to ring after a few seconds with the second call. Outside of having two lines I don't know of a way around this whether it be land lines or mobile.

    even if the 2nd caller hangs up, it still shows up as having a 2nd call? Any idea if I am getting billed for this 2nd call?

    I have been using the "hang up all" button on my 600 and in 5 seconds or so the other call that I wanted to keep rings back. I use Sprint BTW.

    You shouldn't be billed for the 2nd call unless that caller remains on the line. The problem is that you can't initiate another call (3-way) or accept another incoming call (call waiting) until you do the "hang up all" to clear that caller from the screen.
