    I still can't delete numbers. BB knew about the bug -- why didn't they fix it? Is there a workaround?

    Are you in your PHONE app? Not Contacts, but the icon phone. Slide down from the top.. tap the cog wheel/call forwarding... toggle switches to turn off or on... This is dependent on your Carrier.

    It is about deleting call forwarding numbers from the list. This is what I posted in the original thread that was moved:

    I don't see a way to do it. When selecting Call Forwarding it takes a bit to load like it is accessing the data from somewhere. With mobile network off, it states feature not available. Hence I think it is data your carrier caches. However, doesn't make sense that a wipe would clear it

    It may be forwarding handled by carrier?

    What the Passport is doing is caching these numbers FOREVER and not providing a way to delete them. I made them aware of this before 10.3.3, so I was expecting a fix and a way to get rid of old entries when 10.3.3 came out. Nope.

    It queries the carrier's GSM equipment via *#21#, *#67#, *#61#, *#62# to fill in each line, but the dropdown data is cached by the phone with no way to remove.

    A wipe removes the data, and the top number will be pulled down from the carrier.

    This really annoys me. This is telephony? You can't even block a number at the network level. So many wireline features don't exist on cellular, but then again, who said these things were phones?

    Somehow BB OS 10 had to go, wireline/landlines had to go (they were 10x more robust with advanced calling features) because the Android and iPhone and VoIP generations, not to mention, the "in the cloud" folks, messed up everything.

    Is there a file where these are stored that can be overwritten with Sachesi or something? -- I'm speculating.

    Why didn't RIM fix it?
