    I'm not sure why I only get the "Decline" button for some calls, but not for others. Is there anything I can do to make this option always show up?

    It happens to me also. Some calls I see the decline option or accept option. Others I can only slide to accept or I have to let it continue ringing and ignore it. I can't remember but does pressing lock button also ignore it?

    [Raises Hand] I know this! Every morning my wife calls me at 5:30 am, and I always get the "Slide to Answer" option. If the phone is locked, you get the slide. If unlocked you get the accept/decline. Someone said if you swipe up on the slide to answer, it will show the option to decline. I have not tested that. Also they say 2 presses of the power/sleep button will send the call to VM. :)

    I never heard swiping up on slide to answer shows decline option. I'll test that the next time someone decides to call me.

    Let me know. I have no clue. Just read it somewhere. It's apparently been a feature since iOS 6.

    I prank called myself and it didn't work, sliding up on the slide to answer. Nothing happened.

    It must have changed in iOS 7. But pressing the top button twice probably declines the call and sends it to VM.

    Pressing the lock button? Yeah. That declined the call. It didn't send it to voicemail though. Unless it was just too late that I did it.

    You're on the lock screen on the first screenshot and the home screen on your second. They have different options.

    So when your iPhone is in lock mode the only way to decline a call is to use the lock button, correct?

    I decline a call from the lock screen by pressing the power button twice otherwise I use the slide to reject when the phone is unlocked.

    When you twice press the power/sleep button, does it also send the call to voicemail? If not, that must have been a feature of iOS 6. One really has to take note of dates on "how to" articles.

    Yes, the person who is calling is sent straight to voicemail.
