Ignore-call button

An incoming call could be ignored, just pressing(touching?) a button when the phone is ringing. The GSM call is active, but you can use the apps in phone normaly.

Two different ignore-call buttons can be implemented. One that ignores the call immediately and terminated the ringing (which can be rude or offensive in a specific situation to the caller). Another (extra) implementation will ignore the call on the telephone but not to the network. In this latter way the caller will continue waiting and finally get to the network's voice mail.

Maybe an icon in the top panel area that allow you to pick up the call.

There should be a mute button too, so you can answer it but it doesn't make a sound.

Design Issues

When there is an active GSM call, you can't make a new one.

  • Current GSM terminals all support (at least) 3-party conference, including calling and then adding the 3rd party to the conference yourself. Some (GSM) providers offer it as an optional service, but it is in the standard and I'm almost sure Calypso knows about it and can handle it just fine. We should make provisions for/allow for that case to exist as it is a current usage pattern. --@Dexter 09:54, 22 February 2007 (CET)
