Sometimes a coworker's phone in the next cubicle starts ringing, but I know they've left for the day. It's annoying to have to listen to it continue to ring 3 more times before it goes to voicemail.
There should be buttons on *my* phone, in my cubicle, to mute that phonecall and immediately send
it to voicemail. The caller (and coworker) would probably be grateful for this service if it were available.
On internet type phones I assume the technology is possible. Thank you.

||The technology has been around since at least the early 1980s.
||The obvious solution to this is not to work
in a cubicle. How long 'til you're eligible
||Disconnect the offending phone. The call will just go to voicemail anyway.
||Could you not just encourage your neighbour to set their phone to silent before they go out? No, now I think about it, if life was that simple the world would be a nicer place...
||You could be cruel and forward the offenders phone to someone you hate. Or if you dont hate anyone, you could forward it to those numbers with amusing or annoying answering people/machines; like the Hot Chicks Love Line or perhaps the Psycho Hot Line where it says press 11111111111 if youre obsessive
How about the Rejection Line number that is popular for women to hand out in bars to obsessively soliciting men who just won't go away.
