    Calling someone --> 1 ring --> voicemail

    So yeah, if I call someone then after 1 ring it goes straight to voicemail, what does it indicate? Does that mean they have a weak signal strength or that their phone is dead? Or is there a way for people to press a button and send someone who they don't want to talk to straight to voicemail. Is it a possibility for people to screen your number and send it to straight to voicemail should they dial?

    They may have their phone set to send to voicemail after the first ring. Some do it if they can't take calls right away and have it like that so they know they had a call.

    Most phones do have a call reject option where they can just press the reject button and send the call straight to voicemail.

    If they have a smartphone or Symbian OS phone, they may have a call screening app to screen their calls for them.
    If you feel that you have to correct some of my posts for my capitalization of some of my words, then just bear with it. It's just a discussion forum where some may be limited by time to answer in well-versed and eloquent sentences.

    The above is true & you are right also... if a phone has bad signal or is powered off it is possible it could ring once or twice & go to voicemail. But if you think they are ignoring your call... then you are probably right. Just kidding
