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 :-)
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.
