How to configure conditional call forwarding on iPhone

Supposedly for simplicity's sake, Apple chose not to include conditional forwarding settings in iPhone.
To be able to check the status and configure it, though, one can type some codes on the dialpad and hit Call. You can make it much easier if you save those codes as contacts to access them easily when you want to change something.
Here they are:
  • redirect when busy:
    • register: *67*[dest]#
    • check status: *#67#
    • disable: ##67#
  • redirect when not answered:
    • register: *61*[dest]*[sec]# (sec is the number of seconds after which the redirection happens)
    • check status: *#61#
    • disable: ##61#
  • redirect when unreachable (no signal):
    • register: *62*[dest]#
    • check status: *#62#
    • disable: ##62#
  • all conditionals:
    • register: *004*[dest]#
    • check status: *#004#
    • disable: ##004#

For your convenience, I uploaded all of the above as .vcf so you can simply save them in Outlook: http://goo.gl/WIDce
