Are you still doing conference calls the old way? Call Person 1. Tell them to hold, Call Person 2. Ask they if they're ready. Merge the call. Then ask (pray) if they're both there? Then there's the issue of having the wrong number, or your friend (foe) not picking up, so then you look like a loser because Person 1 is over there like - "so, I wonder whats for dinner... what the f is going on." Now imagine if there was 3-4 people. Good luck Chuck!
Moral of the story... don't be a technophobe. Get UberConference right now. It's free... for what you're probably going to use it for, you can share your screen and even see who's already dialed in, and from where. No more fussing around calling each-other, and forcing someone to use a phone if they're connected on their laptop - participants can join in however they want!
Oh and hey, you get your own custom URL too. Their website says it best: "Have Better Meetings." I can't argue with that. Enjoy.
