    Default [Advice] Get call failed on incoming missed calls

    Instead of saying missed call when I dont get to the phone it says call failed with the number and the voicemail works but is this normal to say call failed on the screen ?


    Is this normal ? its the 2nd phone that has done this so Im not sure.

    Same behaviour as my phone. Odd wording. I agree.

    This bothered me also so i changed the text to say missed call
    the top line for the box that opened is located here

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/English.lproj/SpringBoard.strings
    on Line 88
    <key>CALL_FAILURE</key>
    <string>Call failure</string>
    I changed it to
    <key>CALL_FAILURE</key>
    <string>Missed Call</string>
    and the second line for the text in the box is located here
    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/English.lproj/USSD.strings
    on line 154
    <key>CALL_FAILED</key>
    <string>Call failed</string>
    i changed it to
    <key>CALL_FAILED</key>
    <string>Missed Call</string>

    i'm not really sure if this changes anything else but you should probably make backups of the files before you start mucking with them.

    this works for you or not??? just want to make sure it works before editing it.

    I am including some screenshots showing some of the places changing the two lines of code effect.
    also this shows different screens/messages appear based on the state of the call and whether or not the person goes to voicemail or not, i wonder if there is a ring count maybe?

    This one is when you receive a Call failure when the iphone screen is locked and the person goes to voicemail.

    the next two show what line 154 in USSD.strings also changes.
    This screen is what is shown when your screen is locked and the person does not go to voicemail.(typically anything less than 4 rings)

    This screen happens when the screen is unlocked and someone calls and goes to voicemail.

    if your screen is unlocked and the person doesn't go to voicemail then the home screen reappears as normal.

    I'm really not sure i'd seen this suggested some places for plist files, and really a strings file from what i can tell is just a plist file you can try it, its free http://www.donkeydevelopment.com/ i don't know how well it works but its worth a shot.

    masimunes - thank you so much!!! the Call Failure text was driving me crazy, i followed your instructions and it worked like a charm. My only question now is, shouldn't the second part show the missed call's phone number rather than just repeat 'missed call'? Does anyone know a way retrieve the last missed call to the string?
