App to ignore calls for non-jailbroken phones?

It's my birthday tomorrow and I don't want my work calling me with BS questions, but I want to have my phone on so I can talk to family, friends, etc.

Is there an app that will block incoming calls from my job without my phone being jailbroken?

Thanks.

yeah, it's called looking at the phone, and pressing the lock button twice.\

I'd like a call blocking App, as well.

Just do not answer the call. Seems pretty simple. I do it all the time.

PYSL - http://www.appleiphoneschool.com/2008/03/24/psyl-031/ and iBlacklist http://www.iblacklist.com.br/iblacklist/index.php ... if you're jailbroken

Dont think this can be done on a non-jailbroken phone

Well, I guess I should say block the call, instead of ignore it.
I don't even want them to know the phone is on.

I've been using iBlacklist for a year and it works very well. I have it set to give a busy signal for all people calling not in my contacts. It's also easy to turn it off for those times when you are waiting for a call from someone not in your contacts.

It has a whitelist and a blacklist so you can allow exceptions to any of the rules that you set. It can also keep a record of all calls that were blocked. I can't remember the price on it but it's worth the cost.

It's in Cydia so just search for iBlacklist and it will show up.

I use Google Voice as my number forwarded to my iPhone. Using the main GVoice number, you can then block individual numbers.

Can't be done by AppStore apps.

What carrier are you on? I'm on Rogers (in Canada) and I know they have a text blocking feature (not sure about a call blocking one, yet). Perhaps your carrier may offer a call blocker? Only thing I can think of.
