This probably does not apply, but I have a question no one who has an iPhone can answer. If my phone if off or in "sleep mode" and a phone call comes in, if I "slide to open" it automatically answeres the phone. Is there a way to ignore it? I do not want to answer the phone sometimes and I just want it to go to voice mail. This is one feature that really bothers me. I know it is a small thing, but it is an irritant.
Thanks for anybody's help.

Then don't slide it open when a call is coming in. When a call comes it the window wakes from sleep mode, you don't have to slide it open. Just let it ring and it will go to voice mail.

Just push the power/sleep button twice and it will cancel the call

Glad to help. This frustrated me as well until I discovered it.

I agree with Mark, although your phone is in sleep mode but when any call comes it just off the mode.
