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. :)

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

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.
