To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Everything works great with an added bonus of "Call Block" buttons on the base and the handsets. We've blocked a couple of specific telemarketer numbers so far and it works. The phone rings once and displays the call has been blocked. I think the ring can be disabled but it's fun seeing them being blocked. I added 1800 and 1888 to the list of blocked numbers but haven't had any of that range of numbers call yet to see if it works.
While it's still too early to provide a meaningful review of this high-end communication technology, I truly believe that this Panasonic phone will provide you peace of mind due to its various features, including the silent time, a period of time of your choosing where no incoming phone rings would be allowed to disturb your sleep or quiet time. I also love the fact that I can block unwanted calls; I can have many caller groups; the answering machine, the intercom etc. This is a great machine that I am still learning to use to its full potential. I have been very pleased with my purchase and excited! Very good sound quality etc. Like you, it took me quite some time before making my decision to purchase this item, which I don't regret up to now. BTW, I commend also the seller for its reliability and expeditious delivery service, as I got my order within the expected delivery time, which is great! Good Luck to anyone considering this phone for home or home business.
This phone/cordless phones are very clear, call blocking works well. Has battery backup encase power goes out. Color is silver, better than black... in which case you can see all the dust and fingerprints. Good buy. Very fast shipping and delivery. Thanks!
