If you are using a ViLTE and VoLTE enabled SIM card, then your phone may offer some settings separately for voice and video calls. That’s just one extra tap, but the rest of the procedure will remain the same.

Call waiting and call forwarding are operator based setting. The phone can only send a request to your carrier/operator. It is carrier’s decision whether to enable it or not. Your carrier may also charge you additionally for using these facilities.

    • When you enable the service, the phone should take a few moments to reach the operator and confirm the activation. The phone will also query the current status of call waiting and show on the screen i.e. the toggle will move to Enabled if the service is activated.

    • Ya the call waiting check box is enabled with blue mark.

      But actually what is happening is.

      As you said I have enabled call waiting by enable the check box.After few minutes again I went to the disable the call waiting. Now the call waiting should be in enabled know? But it is disabled automatically? How it gets disabled automatically.

      • Call Waiting services are actually operator dependent. Still have you tried calling to your number from another phone while it is busy on another call? You’ll get to know if call waiting is working or not, irrespective of how the toggle shows.
