Listen to your voicemail and see your recent or missed calls

To review voicemail, check your call history, or see missed calls follow these steps:

Use call waiting

If you're already on a call and receive a new one, you can select the notification for the new call to place your current call on hold. Once you have one call on hold, you can go back and forth between calls until one or both of them are done. 

Keep in mind that you'll only be able to use call waiting for incoming calls, you won't be able to dial a second number once you're already on a phone call.
