Removing "Call Forwarding Active" pop-up message
How to remove "Call Forwarding Active" pop-up message when you make a call?
There is a way to remove it by editing one of the .plist, but I can't remember which. I saw it on hackint0sh.org but I can't find it again.
Nevermind, found it:
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.

Download UnknownCarrier.plist from /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreTelephony.framework/Support/ and edit ShowCallForwarding to false...

Be careful because there is a small error in this information …
The file that you say that it is necessary to change is not a file, it is a symbolic linkage (link in linux) to other.
On having modified it, you are changing the system of files of the iphone, which in this case and right now it is not a problem (since it seems that there you works every ok) but the correct thing would be to modify the file to the one that aims at the linkage.

Any other way to do it with 1.0.2??
11-23-2007, 12:47 PM #17
Yep , spot on.
Always edit the real file , never replace the symbolic link.
I just edited the real file and this is now working for me on 1.1.2.Never knowingly understood.

I did this back when I started using 1.1.1 and it worked like a charm, by editing the UnknownCarrier.plist file.
Now I tried it with 1.1.2 and it doesn't work, even though the plist is almost exactly the same (it now has ShowTTY set to true). Has anyone really got rid of the messages on 1.1.2 without sacrificing the voicemail service??
Yes, it does work on 1.1.2 too, stupid me. I had already set up a new plist file for my carrier, so of course I had to edit that file instead of the UnknownCarrier one.
