    I don't know if this exists but I would love an app that could automatically set call forwarding to my home phone whenever it detects my home GPS coordinates. Then, when I leave the house, it would automatically turn off call forwarding.

    I don't think the iOS SDK can interact with your carrier settings,
    It might be able to do so if the carrier has anyway to set the settings via a web control panel, but other than that, you would need a jailbreak tweak.

    I still thin you would need to program it specifically per carrier which is why this does not exist or probably wont exists.

    I don't know about an app but I would surely love to have a scheduled Call Forwarding feature built into the OS. Our floor at work is like a dungeon and we get no cell signal. I would love to be able to setup a schedule to automatically forward my calls between 9am and 5pm on weekdays.
