***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team

Am I doing something wrong or is my phone just not capable of managing a 3 way call? My sister has a different verizon phone and it allows her to hang up on one or the other during a 3 way call or hang up on both! On my Droid Bionic I have to hang up on everyone and call the person i want to talk to back otherwisw it will say i am still on a conference call....

I believe that is how it works on the Verizon Wireless network.

Can the party leaving the conference call hang up on their end and then you should have just yourself and the remaining party on the line?

When they hang up it still says conference call and it wont allow me to do anything. I cant even try to make a new 3 way call... It will show the conference  instead of just the one person that's left.

On my Bionic, when I have a three-way call and one of the parties hangs up, the other party and I are still on the call; it does still say 'conference call' on the screen, however

So if I understood your original post correctly, you are on a three-way call and if one line hangs up, you and the other person can't hear each other or talk to each other?  Does the phone freeze up or something?  What happens when one of the parties hangs up?

When someone hangs up it still says conference call and then I am no longer able to make a new 3 way call.... the other person could be there on the phone still but it makes me wonder if i am being charged mins for the other person still cause it still shows conference still. Kinda bugs me. i came from T MOBILE and I could join calls and manage calls etc but on Verizon i cant do this....

What you are experiencing is also a limitation of the CDMA network used by Verizon Wireless. GSM networks don't have this restriction. When Verizon Wireless switches to VoLTE which is also a GSM based network, the restriction should hopefully be removed from conference calls on the Verizon Wireless network.

There was a Verizon Wireless press release recently that said they were going to start the VoLTE trials or something in 2013. I don't recall the rest. Check out their press releases under the "About Us" link at the top of the website.
