How to reject a call while iPhone 4 screen's locked?

When the screen is locked and a phone call comes through, the screen only shows "slide to answer". I know I can ignore it or mute it, but how to reject it?

Sorry if it's a stupid question. I've been using my lovely phone for 3 weeks and this question JUST occurred to me today. lol

Thanks!

I think you press the Sleep/Wake button, but I can't be certain.
I'm sure someone can confirm this


EDIT: Damn you -aggie-!!!

Push the lock screen to mute it, twice to ignore.

Press the sleep/ wake button twice. This sends the call to voicemail and ends the incoming call immediately.

Pressing it once will just silence the call

Yep, click the Sleep/Wake button once.
I just tested it out to make sure

Yeah - it worked for me too, only once though.

If you use the word "issue" when you are actually referring to a "problem", I am much less likely to respond to you.

To silence it you can also hit the up or down volume buttons. Figured this out on accident the other day

While this thread has fallen into endless rubbish, I'm just asking if this will work on my iPod touch to ignore calls?
I just FaceTimed my iPad and yes, Click power button once to mute call, click twice to end call, I'm assuming the iPod touch is the same as the iPad.

I wasn't actually being serious, but thanks.
