Previously i have used a couple of Nokia phones and just yesterday i switched over to the Blackberry Bold. A great device however i'm having quite an issue here. You see i have my SOHO office phone forwarded to my mobile phone. And because of that i would need some sort of notification whenever a call is diverted to my Bold from my SOHO office. My previous phones would show an ARROW SIGN symbol however the Bold only shows a 1/4 second 'Call Forwarding - Unconditional' message and then dissapears, which of course, anybody would miss seeing it. This is crucial because i need to distinguish between my personal greeting and my standard office greeting whenever a call comes into my Bold.
This is really crucial for me. I have found certain qualms about this issue in other forums however there still is no answer. Perhaps they did not post it to the right forum.
Does anybody know a way around this? I would be utmost grateful if someone can teach me how it's done.

Hi and welcome to the forums!
I have studied that manual and there does not appear to be indications for call forwarding,
they don't have them for my curve either.
I'am sending the guide and the manual, and I will research one more thing.

Can RIM please add this feature into their next OS updates for the Bold? That is to prolong a screen / icon / indicator to distinguish an incoming 'Call Forwarding - Unconditional' forwarded call (say from an office or another mobile or home) from a normal incoming call. The existing 'Call Forwarding - Unconditional' message is WAY TOO SHORT. How on earth will i be able to distinguish between my business calls forwarded from my business land line to my Bold mobile (i do this with standard office greetings) and my personal calls? This should be implemented as the Blackberry is mainly a business phone and a certain portion of your users are entrepreneurs (SOHO) and this feature would definitely come in handy for the lot of us.

I can't believe a solution hasn't been found yet. This feature is key for most entrepreneurs.
Is there an application we can add?
I really need to know whether calls are diverted from my office.
