When in call and another call is waiting on the other line, there shall be a sound notification in the earpiece(headset) indicating there is call waiting. Currently I do not hear any notification, I just notice I have a missed call after I terminate the active call.

I think the same, it should be a sound alert advising you that you have an incoming call. I found out that I had a missed call because the led indicator was blinking, but as I said the call was missed.

Isn't this something a carrier has to provide and support, rather than the phone/software manufacturer?

@Kondou Call waiting itself is a carrier feature, but the notification for a waiting call is handled by the handset. Anyway for throwing away any doubts - my N900 and N9 both beep into the earpiece when a call is waiting, both on the same carrier network and same SIM card inside.

This is very important feature, that should be added ASAP.

Does this apply only to handsfree headset, or also phone's speaker?

This is on the task list. Unfortunately I cannot give you any fix date but not yet in the upcoming update. Sorry :(

@mleinone Thanks! Good to know it is coming in near future.

@mleinone Any news on that? Missing important call like that is becoming very irritating with Jolla...

zlatko ( 2014-03-02 10:28:02 +0200 )edit

I am very sorry, I understand it is frustrating to wait. We have fixed this but it did not make the following release: https://together.jolla.com/question/29506/official-announcement-the-next-update-release-is-in-early-march/. The reason is that there were so many other important problems and we can only do as much. Please check the list of bugs that have been solved since the last release, hopefully it gives you yet a bit more patience to wait for one more release.

@mleinone Thank you for this confirmation! And do not worry - most Jolla users completely understand how many big and small changes,fixes and features need to be developed and how hard it is to roll out an update monthly. So far Jolla team is doing amazing job! Just keep the pace :)

Thanks for understanding, appreciate your patience! Also, it goes both ways - thank you for taking time to report issues and following up on them. Gives valuable information to others too :)

Confirmed, and it makes me so happy. :D

Yes, it's there, and works fine (haven't tried switching calls yet, though)! Thank you lads and lasses at Jolla!
