Participants cannot connect to the conference until a Meet-Me Conference Call has been initiated. Each time a caller joins the MeetMe conference, callers already in the conference will hear one beep alerting them that a new caller has joined.

Once the meeting initiator has left the meeting, the conference call will drop.
