silent custom ring for contact

How can I set a custom ring tone of "none" or "silent" to some of my contacts? I could do this with my horrible Blackberry and have a long list of cold callers in my contacts to whom I'd like to continue to give the Silent Treatment.

I want these people to hear a ring tone until they hang up (I have voice mail switched off), whilst I hear nothing at all.

I can see how to set a custom ringtone but there is no silent option.

Am I going to have to make a silent MP3 ringtone? If I do this, can I control vibrating and LED? I don't want the phone to vibrate or flash its LED either.
