Hi
I have a internet phone, there is a function called "UnPark a call".
I don't know what does it mean?

Also there is "Pickup Unpark" mode.
Thanks.

Generally , when you have a call waiting its parked. so Unparking a call means that you pick it up from parking (thus answering).

no its not a voice message.
English are not my native language too but i'll try to give you an example.
i am calling you and you answer the phone. while we are talking another person calls you and you put me on hold (parking). You answer to the second person. (i'm still on hold). When you "unpark" my call  , you actually get me out of hold and talk.
Is that better?

All that has been discussed so far is accurate. English is a weird language in that we often have a numbe rof words that mean exactly (or approximately) the same thing. Usually, for the average person at home or on the go, we use the term "on hold" to describe a call that is indeed on hold. The term "parked" is more frequenly used in an office environment, where a call is "on hold", but available for anyone to pick up the call by selecting the "line" the call in on. Bottom line, "on hold" for personal use where only you can pick up the call, sometimes called "parking" in an office where anyone can "unpark" or answer the call.
