Start Conference Call iPhone
Have you ever tried to make plans or just chat with a group of people over text? It can get confusing and opinions can easily get lost. Instead, try starting a conference call to get everyone on the same page, in the same conversation, and at the same time.
Depending on your mobile carrier, you can have up to five people on your call. To help you out, here’s how to start a conference call on iPhone.

1) Tap Add Call in the Phone app while on your initial call.
2) Call the second person you want to add.
3) Tap Merge Calls.
