Pressing the top button once mutes the ringer (caller hears ringing till it goes to voicemail).

Pressing the top button a second time sends the call directly to voicemail.

There is no option to reject a call. And as far as I know that is not even possible without the carrier blocking that particular number. There are a few apps that claim to reject calls but what they do is answer and immediately hangup.

This is 100% correct. I do it all the time.

There is one feature in iOS 6 that enables you to filter the calls.... Only allowed people can call you others will be filtered ....

I too have the same problem and share the frustration, the main reason I need the decline function, (i.e. decline without sending to voicemail) is that I forward calls from my work phone to my iPhone when I'm not in the office, however any calls that get forwarded I get charged for, (I.e. the cost of me effectively calling my mobile) so it is highly irritating and costly when I receive 10-20 telemarketing calls per day, (@ 20p per call, that's around £4 per day!) and I don't have a simple function for 'Declining' as obviously the second the call goes to voicemail I get charged as the call has 'connected'. Come on Apple this should be the most basic of options!
