Call divert with iPhone iOS 4.3.1? How?

Anyone know how do I change my call divert settings on the iPhone...3Gs with iOS 4.3.1.? - edit: "Conditional Call Forwarding"

All I get is Call Forwarding and Call Waiting in Settings->Phone ->Calls. Call Forwarding just allows you to enter a number, which the phone will just divert all calls to.

My previous phones, Nokia N95 and even the IDEOS allowed me the following network features:

Divert if busy
Divert All Calls
Divert if not answered
Divert if unreachable
Cancel all diverts.

I am using the same carrier with iPhone as I was with Nokia and IDEOS.

These are pretty basic and necessary network features of any phone, and I am surprised that the iPhone doesn't seem to have options to set these...

Or is there an app which allows this?

I've come across a workaround that does exactly what I want, but jeez its clumsy and inconvenient...

Add each of the following to your contacts:

Name: Divert [here] if busy
Numb: **67*0xxxxxxxxx#

Name: Divert [here] if unanswered
Numb: *61*0xxxxxxxxx#

Name: Divert [here] if unreachable
Numb: **62*0xxxxxxxxx#

Name: Divert all calls [here]
Numb: **21*0xxxxxxxxx#

...where 0x = state area code and xxxxxxxx = desired phone number

Name: Cancel all diverts
Numb: ##002#

Name: Cancel Divert if busy
Numb: ##67#

Name: Cancel Divert if unanswered
Numb: ##61#

name:Cancel Divert if unreachable
Numb: ##62#

The "Cancel All Diverts" technically could be the only cancelling entry required, but if you run multiple diverts, thus adding a further layer of Conditions, then you will cancel all these conditions as well by using the blanket "Cancel All"

It would be relatively smple to write an app that would add options to set the above Conditional Call Forwarding within the menu of Settings-Phone-Calls, but the Apple iTunes EULA does not allow apps that change or improve the functionality of the phone's operating system, so such an app would have to be made available only through a 3rd party vendor, which thus restricts the apps to working only on jailbroken iPhones.

Apple, you make some nice kickass hardware, but your software policy sucks balls.
