    Default Setting own (my) number

    Yet another feature that I have not seen any comments about (maybe someone else already commented that): with 3.0 you can set the "Own Number" (that Apple calls "My Number"). Previously we had to rely on the registration process or on tricks (like doing it on other phones or using programs like miniterm, iGMS, sendmodem).

    Now under Settings->Phone there is a "my Number" entry that allows for displaying and setting/changing the number.

    It's probably the same way we'be been doing with miniterm and other baseband interface programs (iGSM and sendmail): sending AT commands.

    I'm curious because on 2.x, sending AT commands to the baseband is more difficult than with 1.x. Long timeouts and failures until it starts responding (not that on 1.x it was perfect).

    Maybe it responds better on 3.0, but I've tested on a 2G phone that has the same baseband as the 2.x, so it will be interesting to find out how it's done.

    Mine works. But I just found one problem: since you cannot add the "+" to the begining of the number, the number formating routine may get confused.

    So enter your number as you like. US users may use: XXX YYY YYYYY, or 1XXX YYY YYYY. The best option, +1XXX YYY YYYY is no allowed as there is no "+" (as in the dialpad).

    hi aviegas,

    to set your complete telephone number you have to insert 00 instead of +, because is unavailable, then the national prefix (mine is 39 - Italy), followed by the phone number XXX-XXXXXXX. The final result is something similar to 00-XX-XXX-XXXXXXX. Hope it can helps someone to insert phone number correctly. Bye

    Why 00?

    There is no reason for that, unless it is the IDD code for your country. So it's not a generic, country independent approach.

    because 00 substitutes +...if you want to call in england and you have an old phone you digit 0044 instead of +44. idem in the other european countries. i'm not sure about the other continents but i think it's an international standard. or not?
