    Re: phone talk

    Try asking a question. It's not clear what your post means, at least not to me.

    He is on another call. (It is ok) Yes, this is fine. It's why he can't talk to you right now. He's talking to someone else.

    your phone is on wait. (It is ok) I do'nt know what this is supposed to mean. Remember, though, to start your sentences with a capital letter.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Your phone is morelikely on hold, at least in AusE.
    "I'll put you on hold"
    "He is on another call. May I put you on hold?"
    "He is on another call. Would you like to hold?"
