    Default hide "Call forwarding active" message

    Well, some people get a "call forwarding active" message every time they do a call. I read a lot about this topic and there are also some threads about it in here.

    To sum up:

    • It's not a bug, it indicates that your calls are being forwarded either to your mailbox or an "caller unavailable" message by your provider.
    • Some people made the message disappear by forwarding all calls to another number, and then enabling again (not sure if mailbox still works).
    • Activating "call waiting" lets the message disappear (since incoming calls are not forwarded anymore).


    However, there is a simple way to hide this message:

    Get the file com.apple.carrier.plist found at /var/root/Library/Preferences/ and edit the key ShowCallForwarding to be <false/>. Reboot! There you go, your Mailbox works and you don't get that annoying message anymore :-)


    Update:

    There are two settings in com.apple.carrier.plist:

    ShowCallForwarding: Message shown on outgoing calls, if your number is beeing forwarded.
    ShowCallForwarded: Message shown on incoming calls, if caller has been forwarded to you.

    Oh, forgot to say that I'm running 1.1.1. Maybe try to add the key yourself, but I think it doesn't work on 1.0.2.

    Activating "call waiting" doesn't get rid of the message for me. Looks like I'll need a modded plist to fix it but I can't upload to my iPhone for some reason I get "permission denied"

    usually you are not jailbroken if you have no permissions to write, try jailbreaking again.

    Sorry for hijacking this thread!
    When connected to iNdependence it tells me the phone is activated and jailbroken. My phone is 1.1.1 and unlocked - to jailbreak again would I need to downgrade the firmware and upgrade again as per the instructions in the iNdependence help file?
    Cheers

    I'm trying to upload the AppSupport file. I can connect to the phone no problem with Cyber Duck or Fugu and can browse through the files and download them but when I try to upload a file it says "permission denied" and something relating to insufficient privilages.

    It's really annoying. Thanks for the tip! =)
