    Is it possible to disable incoming phone calls yet leave GPS and bluetooth running? It keeps happening, I'm out for a jog or working out with my bluetooth on, jammin away and then someone has to call. Maybe there's an app that I haven't found yet...

    there is an app on the market called aFirewall, i just tested it with my cardio trainer app. I play music, launch cardio trainer then launch the aFirewall and try to call myself from a different phone and the call went straight to voicemail. There is also a missed call log in the app itself but i dont think its working correct though. The setting for aFirewall to block all calls is scenes/(option 1) /look for Call block mode/check Rest (block all). This should work. :)

    Using Airplane mode will definitely disable and not allow calls.

    With Airplane Mode turned on, you can easily continue to use your GPS. In fact the GPS settings of on/off are not impacted at all by turning Airplane Mode on or off.

    WiFi is impacted by Airplane Mode as the default when Airplane Mode is turned on is to turn Wifi off... but you can easily turn WiFi back on, no problem.

    Bluetooth; however, cannot be turned on at all if Airplane Mode is on. No way around it at all on the Droid (that I am aware of).

    I doubt this is what you're looking for but Google Voice has a Do Not Disturb feature that would be a possible solution to this.
