New panasonic wireless feature desired ...

New panasonic wireless feature desired ...

(OP)
I want a feature that I doubt any phone has, but that some of us could find useful.

I have the option to turn off the ringer completely, and to set the number of rings before answering. Here's my problem:

I'm currently deluged (aren't we all?) with robocalls. I have "nomorobo" and it's great, the phone rings once, and then shuts the caller down.

Only problem is, I spend the day listening to the phone ring, then looking up at the Caller ID display, just in time to see it shut off.

It's an interruption I would like to avoid, and that could be avoided with the addition of a pretty simple feature.

What if you could set the ringer to not ring until the second ring? Then I'd never even hear the phone ring most of the time.

I would really love to buy a phone system with this feature. I don't know of any other way of approximating this feature. If you do, I'd love to hear of it!

Hi,

Most systems will have a delay ring feature on them. If you have analogue lines the Panasonic 308 would be the basic system and can have delay ring on incoming call

RE: New panasonic wireless feature desired ...

Am thinking a basic SIP Phone e.g CP-7821-3PCC-K9= (Works with any SIP supported PBX E.g Panasonic KX-HTS32.
The CP-7821-3PCC-K9= supports two lines. You could setup the first ring to go to an analog port on the KX-HTS32 to ring for the period you want then "on the second ring - after the desired period" you forward the call to your CP-7821-3PCC-K9= phone. On the CP-7821-3PCC-K9= , you can use visual alert (Flashing LEDs to signal and incoming call)
