The conference call will not end when the initiator hangs up if they are using a VoIP phone. The call does not end until the last participant hangs up.

Add incoming calls

Mute sound

To avoid disturbing others in a conference call if you need to leave the room temporarily, press the Mute button on the front of your phone to prevent others from hearing any sound from it. You will still be able to hear other participants while you are muted. Press Mute again to unmute.
