    Sorry if this is posted somewhere, but I wanted to post about my discovery.

    I've had some random numbers and bill collectors call me over the last week. I made a contact for one and kept adding the numbers into that contact. If you open any contact, then push menu and select "options" (not edit contact), you get an option to send a call from that contact directly to voicemail. The phone doesn't even ring. Hotness.

    Ah...that's where I'd seen that option. Had been looking for it in the edit section.

    Now, what I'm looking for is something that'll let me create group in the contacts and be able to make that whole group (4-5 people) go to voicemail and be able to switch it off and on easily without having to go to each one and do it.

    Now if you use Google voice, you can setup a custom voicemail message set to that contact. Feel free to use your imagination as to the fun you could have with that.

    You can also make your phone block calls using Google voice. When somebody you don't want calls they will get the " were sorry this phone is no longer connected or no longer in service" I can look for the walk through I posted awhile back if anyone wants it.
