No, in GSM the phone has nothing to do with call forwarding -- the network is 
in control.  All the phone can do is show you the network setting, and 
request the network to change the setting (which the network can choose to 

When you look in the Settings on the N900 it is showing you the current 
network setting.  When you disable forwarding on the N900 it sends the same 
GSM codes that you entered on your old phone.  Next time you look at the 
settings the phone asks the network what the current settings are and tells 
you.  The phone does not remember the settings (and is not involved in the 
act of actually forwarding a call).

As an earlier reply said, if the N900 is not succeeding in changing the 
settings it means your network operator is refusing to accept the changes.  
You need to call your operator and speak to someone to get them to change the 
settings.  It is not a bug in the N900.
