    It certainly is available. You swipe to the left. That will send it to voicemail.

    You can also set up specific contacts to go directly to voicemail without even having to get the call, and swipe to ignore.

    Ahh, I wish there was a button for ignore like the iPhone. Would ignore immediately send them to voicemail or after x rings?

    How to set a contact to be sent DIRECTLY to voicemail:

    Goto contacts
    Choose your contact
    Press the menu button
    Goto Options
    Check the box that says Incoming calls

    ignore will send it to voicemail
    the lock button quiets the ringer/vibration until a certain amount of rings then sends to voicemail.

    If you want them to go directly to voicemail then swipe to ignore. If you just want to silence the ringer then hit the volume rocker.

    A little editorial comment: The OP said another option not available, when in fact there are several ways to do this. It's something I see frequently. Someone blaming the Droid when in fact its user error or lack of knowledge about how their phone works. I saw KZIWarrior talking about this on another thread, he stated that he was tired of seeing this. This is a very basic function yet the OP was clueless.

    I would suggest that a simple google would have explained this to the OP. I don't know what else he thinks the Droid doesn't do but in the future please use the search. Not just the forum search but google as well. This thread was totally unnecessary. Sorry if my comment was a bit harsh but I think its time somebody said something about this.

    +1 for the editorial comment. I'd only suggest that after doing a search it would be considerably more polite (and less likely to lead to egg on face syndrome) simply to ask whether a particular objective can be accomplished rather than asserting it cannot be.

    I've found folks on this forum to be astonishingly helpful (and kind) in answering what in retrospect seemed to have been a rather dumb question. (My own included.) All it takes is what Mom called "manners."

    My apologies for this. I wasn't in the best of moods at that time. You guys have been very helpful and I'm very appreciative of it. I will take some time to search around before asking or making an assertion. :)
