The services sometimes allow 3-way calls to be made. The way this is done may vary between services but the most common way is to call the first party as normal. Once the call is connected the user has to press the Recall button or Switch Hook and dial the second party. After the second party is connected the user must press Recall or Switch Hook again and the 3-way call can commence.

Another aspect to consider is the area code set-up as this can be set to a different area than the one the user lives in. This can make calls cheaper for those that live in this area code but if the user then wants to call someone in the area they live it may be more expensive.

With paid services it is worth looking at the options on offer as these can often save a lot of money especially on international and long distance calls. The calls are made cheaper as the conversion of the senders allows it to be sent to the receivers’ local company so that in effect the call is sent as a short distance call and does not incur long distance charges.
