Hi, you would be able to hear the call waiting signal in the IP phone, but then you can only hang up in order to take the new call.

Reason why, to switch between calls you would need to do hookflash to PSTN, and that is not possible to do as far as I know.

If you want all the nice features, etc, get ISDN lines into the GW, in that case you would get a new call into the phone, be able to put on hold, switch, etc.
