How to Turn Off the Talking Caller ID on a Panasonic

Updated July 20, 2017

Panasonic offers talking caller ID on some of their cordless phones. It can be very convenient since you don't have to run to the phone to see who is calling. It can also be a little irritating, sometimes we have enough noise around us and quiet time is nice. The talking caller ID can be turned off for those times. Panasonic does well with keeping their programming similar for different phone models, although it is a good idea to verify the instruction manual for your model type.

Turn off caller ID at the base by using direct command codes. Use any handset to enter the codes by pressing "Menu," "#," "*," "1," "6," "2," "0," "Save."

Turn off caller ID at a handset by pressing "Menu," "#," "1," "6," "2," "0," "Save," using the handset you want to turn off. You will need to repeat this step for any additional handsets.

Turn on caller ID by following the steps above, pressing "1" in place of the "0" for both the base and the handset.

Press "Off" to exit programming. If you make a mistake while programming, press "Off" and start over.


Caller ID will still record on your phone, you just won't hear it. Programming can be done with direct commands, or through the Initial settings on the handset.
