    This is one thing I hate about the iPhone. If you receive a call while the screen is off why is there no call reject button?

    Can't you just press sleep/wake button?

    Yes, but a reject button is much nicer.

    I miss it too coming from android but then I got used to hitting the sleep/wake button.

    I've never had a problem with it how it is. I don't see where it's any better one way or the other.

    There is no red hang up button if you receive a call while the phone is sleeping or screen off.

    Indeed, I just saw that.. 'Slide to answer' only. I think your only options would be the Power or Volume Down button.

    Yeah, sucked a lot more before I could reject a call from my wrist ha ha. I hate it myself, even with the ability to cancel from my watch.

    I guess it's because you could press a reject button accidentally to easily…

    You can't slide up somehow?
    Because there are still the 'react with textmessage' things. So you should be able to invoke them. So i think it should be possible to reject a call and then you can choose to sent a message.

    Hitting the sleep/wake button doesn't end the call. It only silences the ringer. Need decline/answer option.

    If you hit the sleep/wake button twice it rejects the call.
    When you receive a call the screen lights up with a slide to answer only, slide to reject would also be nice.

    Maybe Apple will figure it out within the next 10 years.

    This is perfectly adequate for me. I see no reason for another option to be honest.

    It's worked for me for years so I have no problem with it.

    If you cut the call early, they will know. Silencing it with the power button let's it ring on their end and they have no clue. I think pushing the power button twice ends the call immediately.

    This is correct, it sends it straight to vm.

    Well the person trying to call you doesn't know, so what difference does it make?

    Or are we just trying to find something new to completely ***** about?

    If you have an Apple Watch paired you can reject the call on there.

    I believe you might be able to set a setting where if you flip your phone and the screen faces the table or something, it'll reject the call. I had a Galaxy Note 5 for a while and that did the trick for me. Apple should implement that idea if they already haven't.

    Pressing the Sleep/Wake Button would be the best way of rejecting the call, actually.

    Ok, so is this a iPhone 6 and beyond thing? If my 5s is 'asleep' and I get a call, it wakes up and shows me who's calling. I can then accept, reject, or send or let it go to voice mail. Newer phones behave differently?

    And why do you need to reject a call when you don't know who's calling? Is there a need to be a **** about not taking someone's call and letting them know you're rejecting it? Some kind of passive/aggressive ploy?

    My Watch functions the same way as my 5s. A call comes in, I see who it is, and can act accordingly. Also covering it with my palm mutes it (except I keep it on Silent) and the phone and I can let the call time out.
