So have I missed something? I want to assign "no ring tone" for a specific contact in on my iPhone. Specifically, my ex-wife. I used to be able to do this with my old phone. It was nice to never have to answer her calls (or to be bothered by the ringer - then ignoring her call). Has anyone else noticed this lacking feature?

Yeah I had a program on my Treo that pushed numbers I picked straight to voice mail.

I think once we get the ability to add custom ring tones a "silent" ring will be used :)

Now where is that update :p

Use Sound Studio or whatever (any voice recording software) and record a 2 second blank sound then delete the bits at the beginning and end where you hear the clicks, then convert it to acc (.m4a) and follow the 'Ringtones' tutorial on www.hacktheiphone.com

dont give your ex wife your phone number! what good is a silent ringer if she just calls you from another number? Or *67s you?

I wish I had a solution for you, but that's really pretty funny.

A silent ringer is great when you are able to set all no caller id'ed numbers to it. Or even numbers not in your phone book.

The bottom line is that we need (expect) more options on a phone like this. Are you listening Apple?

Or it may be funnier to say, can you hear me now?
