Question ringtone silent-button

Please Login to Remove!

When I recieved a phonecall on my old Nokia I could push a button to be silent instead of ignoring the call.
Is there a way to do so on a blackberry?

thanks.

The button on top of your blackberry is a mute button. The incoming call still rings, but is muted.

The volume button on the side will also silence the ringer.

Will this work when i'm called.
I mean, suppose i'm getting a call but I don't won't to be disturbed, is it possible to stop the ringtone from ringing at the moment when i'm receiving a call.
This in case when i'm in a meeting and I did forget to change the profile to silent.

The red phone button does it for me.

... and also dumps the caller directly to voice mail, so they know you're deliberately avoiding the call.

The volume key worked.
That was exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks everybody.
