How to Block Calls With a Panasonic Phone System

By Terry Parker

Panasonic digital phone systems have many programmable options. One such option is the ability to block unwanted calls. If you have a phone, you will inevitably end up getting unsolicited calls, even if you have placed your phone number on the standard Do Not Call lists. In addition to programming a phone book directly into the phone, you can block calls originating from “Private” numbers, calls with no Caller ID and calls indicating that the Caller ID is “blocked.” Depending on the model of Panasonic phone system, you can block 20 to 30 unwanted numbers.

Tips & Warnings

  • When you block a number using your Panasonic phone system, the phone will ring at least once when you get a call from the blocked number. When the phone system recognizes that the number is in the blocked list, a message of "Call Blocked" will appear in the display window. The telephone system will send out a busy signal, then disconnect the phone from the unwanted call.
  • You can browse your list of blocked telephone numbers by pressing "Menu," then the down arrow button and selecting "Block Calls." Press the up and down arrow buttons to view blocked numbers. In this view, you can either erase or edit blocked numbers.
