Hi, @SoX.  I just brought up the thread for you.

@SoX, I have the Panasonic KC-TGF353 which has the base unit and three handsets.  It blocks 250 numbers and can be set so that once a number is blocked the phone does not even ring once.

 

Lots of other nice features too but the best is how easy it is to block a call.  It can be done when a call is coming in, from the CID or even manually.

I get a great deal of satisfaction blocking a call as it is ringing. 😊

@Marp ...

 

Thanks, so much Marp ...   I just got a new deal from Comcast that will lower our cable/internet cost considerably.    I'd resisted because I didn't want the Comcast phone to be my primary ... however, the associate told me ... "oh, just add a new phone to your modem -- you don't have to get rid of your current phone or carrier."  

 

By doing that we're going to save over $100 on our total bill ... yippee!

Hi, Marp ... I need to UNBLOCK a number but can't find my instructions. 

 

Here's the backstory:   Caller ID showed an incoming call from my sister which I had missed.  Funny thing ... the actual number was an 800 number from a telemarketer which my Caller ID blocked.   Now, every time my sister calls, even though it's her real number, Caller ID blocks it.  I can't find how to get this fixed.

 

Please help!   Thanks.


 

 

 

@Marp...

@SoX, I feel your pain about your sister's number being spoofed.  To unblock the number:

 

Press Call Block

Select Block a Single Number

Scroll to the desired number

Press Erase; scroll to Yes; Press Select

 

Sister's number will be removed from the blocked numbers list.
