    Full sentence reads: 'By briefly hanging up on the first caller you can switch to the second caller and back again.' Any ideas?

    En raccrochant brièvement au moment du premier appel... (?) :)

    This sounds like what a switchboard operator does.

    En mettant le premier appel en attente, on peut prendre le deuxième appel, et revenir ensuite au premier.

    Is that the present participle? "mettant", "raccrochant" etc?
