Currently Being ModeratedAug 20, 2007 8:02 AM (in response to Dennis_Burnham)While I agree that the procedure sounds tedious and inconvenient, if you are TRULY worried about driving safely, to be a conscientious and safe driver, you should just pull over and take 1 minute out of your day to do whatever on your phone, whether it is having to dial 57 different numbers, or to even occasionally press "1."

In Dallas, Texas, you have to dial a total of 35 digits to activate your call forwarding remotely. Plus, you have to insert a total of 22 pause commas to time the dialing correctly. That makes a total dial string of 57 characters.
This is not about convenience. This is about DRIVING SAFETY. With my Treo 600 handset, I could press one speed dial number and then just listen until the end of the sequence keeping 2 hands on the wheel the entire time until all I had to do was pick up the phone momentarily and press 1 to confirm it.
This is a very unusual situation. If it is very important you should return the iPhone and get a Treo 680. Or remember to switch your forwarding before you get in the car.Lenovo T-60, Windows XP Pro
