You might have already seen ads about Vodafone Call Conference. But it doesn’t says much about usage & charges, which I am going to write here. Vodafone Call Conference allows you to talk to maximum five people at a time! And also each person you added to conference can add more five people! You can use call conference right away, there is no activation required.
The above image gives you step by step procedure to make a conference call. It might vary a bit for diferent phones. I have tried this on my Nokia phone & found that once conference starts you can’t add more people in between. So first call all people whom you want to include into conference call by keeping all other on hold & then make it conference. For Ex: Follow exactly same procedure till Step 3 in image, now you added two persons into you conference. You should not continue to step 4 if you want to add more people. So, before Step 4 add third person by keeping other two on hold. Same thing applies if you want to add fourth person. once you are done with adding all people for your conference, continue to 4th Step.
Conference Calls will be charged as per your tariff. But if you have any plan with charges for calls is less than 30 paise or if you have free minutes, 30 p/minute will be charged. For Ex: I have a postpaid plan which has 450 free local calls & above that will be charged 40p/minute. Any conference call made within free minutes will be charged 30p/minute & above free minutes will be charged as per my tariff i.e, 40p/minute. It means that you have to pay minimum 30p/minute for conference call. You will also be charged for each call you make & not for conference call as a whole. Say, you made a call conference with 3 people, you will be charged for each of them.
Overall it’s a great servcie to have fun with friends & family. It can also be used for buisiness conference calls. Enjoy Conferencing!
