Collect, and Person-to-Person.

However, many people do not have Call Waiting, and Busy Line Interrupt is important in case of emergency. IMHO, that should be retained. (Also, if someone with Call Waiting is talking on 'both' lines, then incoming callers will get a busy signal. So, there is a need for it even for people who do have Call Waiting.)
