    about a word usage

    Could you tell me if "call waiting" includes the meaning
    as a "hold button" of the telephone?

    Do you know other word to say the same meaning of
    a "hold button"?

    Re: about a word usage

    In Singapore (for example), "call waiting" is a telephone service that allows a caller to call you (without getting an "engaged" or "in use" tone) while you are on the line with someone else. Nowadays, many cell phones allow you to switch to the second caller by putting the first caller on hold.

    The hold button is the button that you press to put a call on hold while you speak to another person.
