How to place a conference call on your Samsung Galaxy S10, and add up to five people to a call

Galaxy S10 side by side

Sometimes you need to talk to more than one person at a time. For just those occasions, your Galaxy S10 lets you place conference calls. It’s easy to do; just make the first call the way you usually do, and then add a second number to the call. 

If a three-way call isn’t enough, you may be able to add yet another party to the call. The number of lines you can add to a call varies depending upon your cellular provider, but you might be able to have up to five other lines on a call at once. 

Here are the conference call capabilities of some popular cellular providers:

  • Verizon Wireless normally allows up to three parties (including yourself) on a call at once, but if you upgrade to Verizon HD Voice, you can have up to six lines (five others and yourself).
  • AT&T and T-Mobile allow up to five parties at once (four others and yourself). 
  • Sprint allows three-way calling only.
