Straight to voicemail?

Does anyone know how to make your incoming calls go straight to voicemail. Would you have to call sprint or can you do this from your handset?

Without any intervention on your part?

Well.....you could turn the phone off...

Pressing End twice may send a caller to VM (The ignore feature......End x2 does that on mine)
