    Coming from Verizon, I've never dealt with merging calls or even 3-way on a cell phone before. I'm curious as to how merging calls will work: is there a surcharge? Or if not, will you be using twice as many minutes? For example, in a 3 way call that lasts 10 minutes will it count as 10 minutes for each person you're on the call with?

    I haven't been able to find any information about this, although I could be over looking things.

    I think you just get charged for a regular call.

    You will be charged for each call within the conference. So, in your example you will be billed for 20 minutes, not 10.

    Six-Way Calling lets you conduct a conference call with up to five additional parties. You can selectively remove parties from the call, place your conference call on hold, and conduct a private conversation with one of the parties.

    This feature is available on select GSM plans and incurs airtime or roaming fees, plus applicable long distance charges for each leg of the conference call.

    Those links aren't working. You have the ellipses in your URL.
