Can I dismiss a call without answering? (Ignite home phone)

When I see a number i don't recognize on caller-id is there a way I can either decline it or send it straight to voicemail?

I don't believe that is possible.  However, I have a cordless Panasonic phone and if I press "off" when it's ringing, it stops ringing that handset and if the caller wishes, they can leave a voicemail after the requisite number of rings (which I don't hear on that handset, but still ring on other handsets in other parts of my home, IIRC)

As 57 so aptly pointed out, that would be a feature of your phone and not the carrier - just as on a cel phone.
