    Won’t the Facetime option be available if they are calling from another iPhone? I think that’s one way to tell.

    Hi,
    I experienced the same problem. What I did was i changed the Sim card, then I went to Settings > Phone > Call Waiting and disable it. Then I changed back my Sim card. The Call Waiting was no longer “ON”

    I have the same problem as munax, is there a way to find out if the person you are calling is in a call (when the person you are calling has call waiting enabled) ? Except the case in which there is busy line (no call waiting enabled).

    Also I want to know if there is a sent receipt for the sent sms ? NOKIA has this option *(I know if my friend received the sms or not), but on IPHONE I don’t know if the sms has been sent (the friends phone can be turned off or not in the coverage area). There is no sent sms receipt.
