If I turn the phone upside down while it rings, then surely I meant
to reject the call. I.e. I want the sound to stop, and not by picking
up. Very similiar to reject.

The nice thing about reject is that you don't waste the other
persons time. If you just let the phone ring, perhaps with the
sound off, then they will be waiting hoping that you eventually
pick it up. Well, perhaps we want that when the call is IDed
as a telemarketer . . .
