  • I spend most of my phone call time on FaceTime audio only calls (start a FaceTime video call, then hit home button and then lock the phone, thus FaceTime audio call) I wish apple would let us use features like call waiting during this. When I am in this mode which can be for hours on end, I get no audio notification that there is another call coming in. (Most of the time the phone is in my pocket) I wish that FaceTime was treated more like a standard phone call in this matter.
