How do I end current call and answer an incoming call?

My apology for such a basic question.

I went from a feature phone (dumb phone) to a Iphone4S and learning how to do the basics.

One problem came up several times and I’m sure it’s just me needing to learn how to make the phone do what I want it to do.

Say I make a call to Joe. I get Joe’s voice mail. As I’m leaving Joe a voice mail Joe calls me back.

On my screen I have two options "ignore" or "Hold call + answer".
What I want to do is end my current call and answer.
My carrier is Verizon.

Does anyone know how I would do this?




Thank you for your help.

Just hold call and answer. His voicemail will eventually disconnect the call.

One problem with using the hold button is you when you end the first call you place the call on hold whether they hang up or not. You then have a call on hold even if you are not going back. It does not end the first call. Then you are running minutes and most providers may charge your usage. I know happened to me and I use Sprint!

My problem is my new 5s when the second call is coming in does not give an option to end current call and pick new one up.

Is there a fix?

I had thought there was a way to do this with iOS7, but perhaps not. In any case, I'm using the iOS 7.1 beta and that gives you three options when you get a call when you're already on the line: Ignore, Hold and Answer, or End and Answer. So if you can't do it now, then you should be able to once iOS 7.1 is released in a month or so.

So there is no way to resume the prior call? I know how to answer the second call and place the first one on hold, but once that call ends I want to resume the first call.

I get this option with IOS7, maybe the OP doesn't have IOS7 installed?

Once the second call ends the first remains on hold. Just hit the hold button (which appears where the mute button normally is) to continue the first call.

I've come across cases where after hanging up on the second call the first call that is on hold will simply ring your phone (as if a new incoming call) and you can answer to resume the call basically.

Yes when you hang up the first call your phone will ring, answer. It will be the call you placed on hold.

----------

I should have said hang "current" call.
