A conference call allows you to communicate with more than one person at a time using your iPhone. Depending on your network service provider, a conference call can connect up to five people at the same time. A conference call merges two or more communication lines; therefore, billing is usually on a per-line basis. However, if you are on an unlimited call service, then you do not need to worry about extra charges. This tutorial explains how to make a conference call on iPhone.
