    Is there any way to set someone to a silent ringtone? I see there is a way in contacts to cause a contact to go straight to voicemail, but I don't want the contact to know that I set it that way.

    I assume when I enable the "straight to voicemail" setting, the person on the other end will know something is different. I just want it to seem normal for them. I want it to seem to ring for them, and then go to voicemail, but I don't want to hear (or see) anything on my end.

    So you want to NOT know whenever a certain person is calling you?

    I don't see anyway possible to do this. This I believe would have to be done manually.

    You could make a ring-tone with nothing in the recording and put it as their individual ring-tone though, that should be easy. That way when they call you don't hear anything, but when anyone else calls it will ring normally.

    Yeah, I thought of that. Seems like a hack, but maybe I'll give it a try.

    @dfalcon217, yes, I don't want to hear when they call, but I also don't want them to know that I have them set to "straight to voicemail". I assume with that option on, the caller will be able to know, because it goes to voice mail right away, rather than ring for a while first.

    Use Google Voice

    If you have a google voice account you can set which of your phone rings when someone calls you. Set none of your phones to ring and you shouldn't be notified when they call...

    Better yet, if you have GV you have these options which I find very useful:
