    Re: Something put on hold?What does the phrase mean , put on hold?

    It means to temporarily suspend something. For example, you call me to find out whether you can buy something at my shop. I put you on hold while I check whether I have it in stock. Or, on a whole other level, I decide to put my university education on hold in order to spend a year in India.
