I would like to dissable the call forwarding pop up
Can you give me a step by step run through of how to do it. I have never edited a plist file before. How do i do it.

sometimes instead of changing it to NO (as to YES), you have to change it to false. Depends on which editor you use i think ;)

I am using this one for vista

Doesn't work under FW 2.2.1...

I copied the file to my desktop with Fugu (an SFTP client), changed the values with the Property List Editor (OS-X) and copied the file back to the iPhone - popup is still there. Any ideas? Is maybe yellowsn0w working some mojo and circumventing the carrier.plist?

This tweak worked perfectly on my 3.0.1 iPhone 3G. Thanks!

Excellent worked for me, being a newbie to this I followed the instructions above and found the "carrier.plist" and saved it to my desktop. I then downloaded "plist editor for windows" from here,
opened the program and imported the file from my desktop edited and saved it, then replaced the edited file for the one on the iphone.

I upgraded to 3.1.2 on my 3G and now I cannot get this solution to work for me. Do you have a solution for the 3.1.2 software version?

Great. Tnx. It works also on 3G, you only need to restart it.

i had the same problem with my iphone 3gs version 3.1.2 but it's OK now!!!

check this out :

simply call ##002# and that's it!!!!

Works perfectly for iPhone 3G 3.1.2!

It is useful to try everything in practise anyway and I like that here it's always possible to find something new. :)

Thanks, the direct editing of the plist worked a treat on 3.1.2. I had no luck with the ##002# method though, I think this may depend on the particular carrier you are using. I'm using 3mobile in the UK.

Ok everyone after searching and searching the internet trying to find out how to edit the carrier.plist file, i finally found a pretty easy solution. Download ifile in Cydia> in ifile you will see a small house icon, go into it> Library> Carrier Bundle.bundle > carrier.plist> the "[key]ShowCallForwarded[/key]
[YES/]" should be about 8 or so lines under the long list of . Hit edit and change the to . After that reboot your phone and PRESTO! I have a 3G 3.1.2 btw
