Does anyone know how to refuse a call that comes in when your phone is locked? With a normal phone you can just hit the red button but on the iphone the only options seem to be 'slide to answer' or turn the whole damned phone off. Any help gratefully received..
But the question is how to REFUSE a call, not how to silence it or redirect to VM.
If you have an iPhone you probably also have a plenty of free minutes, if a friend calls you from pre-paid card (your girlfriend, kid, grandma...) it is usual to refuse it and call back (redirecting to VM will charge him).
Another example of Apple tyranny/stupidity/smugness?
I have never had a phone that could "refuse" a call the way you are talking about. All the phones I have ever had sent the caller to VM when you hit the end call button. Tell your friends to hang up after 4 rings I guess?
I use a jailbreak app called iBlacklist for iPhone it cost $12. If I remember correctly the non registered version allows you to block two numbers. You can block the number into VM or just have the call dropped. Although I don't use it for this it can also block SMS.
