    Is this possible? When I select an individual contact and go to options, silent does not show up as an option for that individuals ringtone. I would like some contacts to ring and others not too. Is there maybe an application that will do this? Sorry if this has been asked and answered I could not find it with a search.

    This might be an odd workaround, but you could always make or find an MP3 file that has no sound and just set that as the person's ringtone.

    Go to contacts, select the contact you want, hit menu, then options, then check send incoming calls directly to voice mail.

    I use this a lot.

    Probably just an oversight. I use the "send straight to voicemail" option for several of my contacts as well, ie my mother-in-law! :D

    If you're rooted, this is so simple. But if you're not, I would think all you would have to do is install one of the 100s of ringtone apps on the Market that allow for custom mp3s to be used. Record a 1-second silent mp3 (I can supply this if needed) and use that file as your "silent" ringtone.

    Try downloading the Smart Silencer application from the Android or Amazon market. It is exactly what you are looking for...

    I guess it should be simple, but can you tell us how to do it. I have a rooted phone and don't want to use the voice mail opton.

    That's not an option on my Huawei Ascend 2 through Cricket either.

    I used an earlier poster's suggestion of setting the ringtone to something unobtrusive.

    There are some apps for rooted phones that allow you to block certain numbers.
