How to Block Calls With a Panasonic Phone System

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.
