    Here is my situation/issue. When someone calls my phone it will continue to ring until the caller decides to hang up. I do not have my voicemail set up, nor will I because I don't want people leaving me messages, and I don't think that's the issue. I used my 4S for almost a year without ever having my voicemail set up and the phone would ring about 5 times, go to voicemail, then play the automated message stating that "the person you are trying to call does not have their voicemail set up". I was assuming this would be the same scenario for my iPhone 5, but it is not.
    Is there a fix for this? I'm thinking it is ringing for eternity because of iOS 6's new answering features. Apple must really want these to be utilized.

    When you get a call, hit the sleep button once to mute the ringer, twice to send directly to your non-existent VM.

    Although it's not automated, it will work until you figure something else out. Heck, there may even be a way to set up your VM, then deactivate it... but that's above my pay grade.

    OP: Would the new Do Not Disturb settings help get what you want?

    You could also record a greeting saying...

    to the effect that the voice mail is not set up.

    I was thinking about utilizing the DND feature. I haven't played with it at all.
