A reader asks: 

“How do I send calls directly to voicemail on my iPhone? Sometimes I’m busy and I want to focus on work so I would like to see who’s calling, so shutting off my phone isn’t the best solution. Is there a better way to send all callers, or just certain callers to voicemail?”

There are a few ways to send calls straight to voicemail. To start, you can quickly switch your iPhone to Silent Mode by toggling the Ring/Silent switch. That’s the switch on the left-hand side of your iPhone, above the volume buttons. You’ll see a small red strip next to the switch to indicate when it’s in Silent mode. That way, depending on your settings, you’ll see a call coming in but you won’t hear your ringtone. By default, your phone vibrates when you receive an incoming call, but you can turn that off if it’s too distracting:

Go to Settings > Sounds & HapticsToggle off the Vibrate on Silent switch 

Alternatively, when a call comes in, tap the Sleep/Wake button to silence the ringer and send the call to voicemail. The Sleep/Wake button is the solitary button on the right-hand side of your iPhone (or on the top of your iPhone if you have an iPhone 5 or earlier).
