I had been puzzled for ages why my iPhone was not allowing calls and sending them to voicemail immediately. I had checked all the usual settings, My voicemail settings, the Phone settings. I could not see what the issue was.

Now this caused the problem. So beware accidentally switching this feature on because any incoming calls will go straight to voicemail. Due to this I am not sure its such a great feature to have so visible on the phone. Why not keep it in Settings and not on the control panel.
