As explained before, you got two options then:
A) reject the call (find proper AT command or whatever for that)
B) shut down modem (AT+CFUN=0 or sth)
A will create a busy signal at callers end, B will usually result in "the 
number you've called is temporarily not available"

Worth noting that you need to keep up the AT+CFUN state for >5..10s and then 
revert to CFUN=2 or what's normal status, to allow further calls in as well as 
There *might* be a dedicated command defined in GSM/3GPP to reject a call with 
"temprarily not available", which would be the better alternative to shutting 
down modem for 10s. You have to find out, I don't know off top of my head.
Also I can't give any advice how to implement any of that on qtmoko. I _could_ 
tell you how to do it on maemo, with a 5..10 shellscript lines (buzzword dbus-
