I may be a big dummy, but I just found out TODAY after 2 years of Blackberry use (7230, 7100t, 8700t) that the person CALLING you can TELL if you are ignoring their calls.
Let me explain that further:
The second you click 'ignore' it goes to voicemail. So anyone who knows anything about Blackberries will know that if it doesn't go right to voicemail quickly, but then it does after a ring or two, is ignoring your calls.
I thought that once you clicked ignore, it silenced the ringer, and then went to voicemail in usual fashion after a fixed number of rings.
This is a precarious problem that I guess I thought more people would have a problem with. A sensative client left me a voicemail saying "I know you are clicking ignore because I have a Blackberry too" I would have preferred he just thought I was busy and unable to get to the phone answer, but by clicking ignore, he knows that it is ringing and that I'm physically clicking ignore.
Isn't there a way to preserve your privacy when it comes to this stuff?
1. Can't let it ring until voicemail... too disruptive
2. Can't turn radio off, would miss calls I want to take
