Phone > Options > Call Waiting > Call Waiting = Yes.

 

You may need to make sure Call Waiting is also enabled by your carrier.

Is this the 'Options' icon (the wrench)?  If so, I have no call waiting there.

No, press the green PHONE dial key first, then Menu > Options, etc.

I'm not sure. It must be a CDMA device thing, "sound" is not an option on mine in that area.

Re: How do I enable call waiting????? HELP!!!!!!

I am just replying to this post as I figured out how to activate call waiting on my blackberry 9000 phone.  It was working before I recently changed my phone number.  I searched through forums and found a solution which did not work, which was to go into the options menu and change the call waiting option to 'yes', unfortunately I did not have the call waiting option there!  I called Blackberry customer services who wanted to charge me $49 just to advise me!!  I then thought why don't I just use my trusty old Nokia phone to reactivate the call waiting service, and voila! it worked!  So instead of paying, just stick your sim card into an old reliable and trusty phone, activate the call waiting service on that, and then stick it back into your Blackberry!  Hope this helps anyone who's been having the same problem as me.
