okay, thank you. Panasonic recommends removing the rechargeable batteries if you are not going to use the phones for an extended period of time this will keep the batteries and the phones from damage while not in use.

I don't want to just shut off ringer. I don't want 50 calls on my phone when I return. Thank you for recommendation.

Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today.
My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you're having trouble, and for any confusion. It looks like your question was inadvertently routed to the computer category, rather than to a proper phone expert.
Can you please clarify what your intent is here? If you are gone for an extended period, do you not want to receive any calls, not want callers to have an opportunity to leave you a message, and to not have any indication that someone did call while you were away?
Or are you just wanting to disable the ringer for example so that it isn't making noise while you aren't there, which could disturb neighbors, etc?
