Most of the telecom service providers offer call blocking features. In addition to this, most of the vtech cordless phone sets have built-in features through which you can block incoming calls from a specific number.
Create a "Call Block List" on the vtech phone and store the Caller ID information of unwanted callers in the list. The numbers you feed in the block list will get a busy signal every time they try to call you.
Ring up the customer service of the telecom company that is providing you the phone service. Tell the representative that you want to get your incoming calls blocked from a specific number. The company will then add that number to a list of blocked numbers for your particular phone number. In the future, every time an unwanted caller tries to ring you up, he will hear a recording saying the number has been blocked.
Visit the website donotcall.gov. Add your phone number to the website's list of phone numbers that cannot be reached by telemarketers and businesses.
You have to do 2 things: Make it ring and turn on Line Preference-Incoming Ringing line. The first is done from SYSTEM programming in programs 408/409/410 for DAY/NIGHT/LUNCH. The second is defaulted to Ringing so if the phone rings, it's supposed to work. If you've changed it, then from your idle phone you press PROGRAM and dial 22 STORE. (21 is no preference and 23 plus a number is a specific line).
There are 2 things that would prevent you from being able to answer a ringing phone by picking up the handset. Your phone has to be ringing, and you need to set preferred line ringing on incoming calls.
The second part is easy. Press PROGRAM 99 and dial 22 STORE on your phone. Now when a call rings on your phone you can pick it up. If you can't, then your phone is not ringing.
If you have a PTPM or the maintenance console, you can program ringing. It's a dealer only product in the U.S. Incoming calls are made to ring ICD (incoming call distribution) groups where the ringing is controlled per extension. In our version, even the manager does not have access to that level of system programming.
Hello, if you are using this phone on a Panasonic 308 or 824 system press 40 for an external incomming call or 4 followed by the extension number to pick up a certain extension that is ringing. Thank you.
You can buy a 2 line phone, but to use the fax/dsl line for voice, you will also need a line sharing device.
"The stick" is a good brand....
All it does is recognize if an incoming call is a fax or a voice call. If fax it would go to a fax port on the stick. If voice, it comes out the voice port which you can call on.
The same rules apply to this line....if something is using it, the next call will get busy......But now you could have the phone company "Hunt" your line 1 to line 2 (fax/dsl) if line 1 is busy.......hence...2 incoming lines....
