How to Decline a Call on The IPhone 4S

Hello, I know there has to be a way to do this.. If my phone has been idle for while and is locked (no passcode) and I get a phone call with the ringer on - how do I decline the call? Let me explain.. When the phone rings - the screen illuminates and my lock screen comes on (not the screen that asks if I want to accept or decline the call). When I move the arrow on the main screen to "unlock", it immediately answers the call and never gives me an opportunity to decline it. Obviously, I can turn the ringer audio off, but what if I don't want to do that? There has to be a way to decline the call. If the phone screen was not locked - the accept and decline buttons are visible - but not when its locked. There has to be a easy answer to this. Thanks in advance.
