look up any word, like hipster:
 
1.
The term used when you call someone and they hit the ignore button on their cell phone, to avoid speaking with you.

The term originates with Nextels because they have a side button to do that.

You know you've been side buttoned if it rings for a shorter time than usual before going to voicemail.
Mark: Oh no! Greg is calling
Jessica: Don't answer it!
Mark: Good idea, I'll side button him.

Greg: What the fuck, TWO rings? Fuck Mark for side buttoning me.
