Change the iPhone's conditional forwarding numbers
Authored by: cbowers on Sep 12, '07 10:00:56PM

OK that's great, but not really an "Apple" user experience.
My old SE T610 does this with menus. You choose the forwarding feature and enter the phone number. Canceling it is a click. Forget where you forwarded it? Click on status and it will tell you the number that forward scenario is forwarded to.

What's more is these settings are per profile. So I set it once, and from that point I just select that phone profile and the home/status display screen reminds you that you also just enabled custom forwarding by selecting that profile. Select normal profile again and the forwarding turns off.

So it's very easy to have your cell number ring on your home or office phone just by selecting a home or office profile on your phone.

Or, easy to have my personal cellphone call forward to my work cellphone. And since the work cellphone is also GSM, the display visually indicates to me that this is a forwarded call when it rings in, so I can change how I answer the phone, knowing it came from my personal cell number (catch up with *that* CDMA).

Would be nice to know that Apple adds such Apple like user interface thoughtfulness into the iPhone as well. Though given how the bluetooth features of my Palm, Blackberry, GPS, and Mac laptop and desktops run circles around the bluetooth iPhone experience (has no BT profiles other than headset, so no addressbook interface for callerID, SMS, or GPS location with google maps) perhaps all this is yet to come in a 1.1 or 2.0 iteration of iPhone.
