BT 9500 Halo Nuisance Call Blocking Cordless Home Phone, Previous reviews have been put right by

Brilliant fantastic, highly recommended look really nice, buy buy.

Absolutely love it, yes initially there is an issue with speaker quality, but the bt helpline fixes it in a matter of minutes, ring them on the handset and they will even ring you back on your mobile to facilitate the software update, and they even ring you back on the handset to ensure that you are happy with the quality of the fix. I must admit that i bought it for the design, it’s a work of art, but i love the features, you can upload all your contacts from your mobile in minutes, which is great as a backup in case you lose, or don’t have direct access to your mobile for a period of time, also if your mobile is not to hand i. E upstairs or in the car, and you get a call from someone calling your mobile you can answer it on the landline ,or choose to make a call mobile call from the handset. The answerphone excellent, family in usa, so one of the main reasons for needing a landline with an answerphone is the time difference of course there are many other ways to contact internationally through social media these days but we still love a landline for overseas don’t we. Haven’t needed to test the call blocking facility yet, as nuisance calls seem to have dropped off quite considerably over the the last few months?. – change in the law or something i don’t know for sure, but i am confident that it will be work if needed. In short great phone for a great price, i have a feeling that they wont be available at this price for long, and yes you have to think how long will it be until landlines become a ‘redundant’ product?. But for me i will be pleased that i have one of these, as i think they will be the ‘trimphone’ of the future.

Does exactly what we wanted and seems to block all nuisance calls. Very pleased with the phoneset and amazon service i received. First phone was sent back due to a small manufacturing fault – it wouldn’t charge, one of the thin wire terminals in the base unit was bent. No problems with amazon, i organised online for them to send a replacement immediately and it arrived within 3 days which was pretty quick for my part of the scottish highlands. The phone has worked well from day one with no significant problems during setting up although there are occasional distorted phone voices which i knew to be highlighted as an issue before i bought the phone. The best aspect of this phone and the main reason for the purchase in the first place is that from the day we installed it we have not had a single cold call whereas we were getting between 5 and 15 a day before.

Previous reviews have been put right by bt. Bought these direct from bt, i noticed all the negative reviews and phoned bt as soon as they arrived to get the update. It was really straight forward, and the phones work fine. Love the ability to connect up to two mobile phones via bluetooth, but also the ability to either make or receive calls on the bt phone via your mobile. They look really stylish, and the call guardian feature is simply brilliant. I always read these reviews and generally walk away at the sight of three stars, however i really encourage you to accept bt have a fix for the reported problem, these are an absolute bargain at this price.

I would first like to make an important point with these phones,if you find the clarity of the phone is no good please phone there helpline on 0800 145 6789 as another reviewer has mentioned, as they can do an update firmware over your mobile phone and talk you through the steps on the home phones, try not to send them back straight away untill you have tried this. Also others have commented on how slow the phones can be to access certain things for example missed calls, the reason for this is due to other interference from other bluetooth devices, as this connects to your mobile phone, the same as other wi fi connections can alter the speed of your home network. I love these phones and the price i got for the twin set was brilliant. Easy to use, when entering a new contact it automatically goes to the second phone, idea of connecting your mobile works great, and you can have 2 different mobile numbers connected at one time. The block calling device is brilliant and have 3 different options to stop them horrible scam calls. Phone has 3 phone books and can hold 1000 contacts in each book, that’s impressive. Also a very simple answer phone system all in all this phone for the twin set price is brilliant and well worth the buy, would i have bought these at full price, not sure, but i am very happy with delivery, packaging, price and product.

BT 9500 Halo Nuisance Call Blocking Cordless Home Phone with Bluetooth and Answer Machine – Black, Twin Pack : Great phonesjust a little work to do. Once you get the instructions from bt product support on fixing the audio. I bought these knowing about the problem and that there was a fix for it – the price had dropped dramatically and these are great phones once set up correctly. Without the configuration problem these would still be priced a lot higher – don’t let this worry you. . Call bt, apply the fix ( takes about 2 mins ). . You end up with great phones for a good price.

    One call to bt and it’s sorted 5*. Once sorted by bts help desk, calls are crystal clear and i’ve not had a singe ppi/nuisance call. I couldn’t tell you the fix as it’s so long winded into menu system you are changing things you really shouldn’t be mucking about with, good job bt talk you through it or better still just fix them before you ship them.

    1. Looks good and certainly has stopped quite a few calls. Only drawback is that it doesn’t speak the callers name like our old one did so we have to actually go and look at screen before answering but as its usually someone we want to speak to that’s not too bad. One of the great features is that you can upload your mobile phonebook to it (3 phonebooks in all).

    1. Bought for my parents who kept getting nuisance calls every day. Now nuisance calls seem like a lifetime agoadded bonus that it’s a stylish looking phone in the house.

    And they sounded even worse than a standard uk call. Feature complete but the call quality is abysmal. People on the other end stated we sounded faint and distorted, and they sounded even worse than a standard uk callwe also found the “nuisance call blocking” to be very hit and miss, despite bts claim of a “premium” service. For the price now (£48), it is still not a purchase i could recommend.

      1. Dreadful – avoid at all costs. We bought these to replace inexpensive handsets. We though by going with the top of the range would be a safe bet. Two issues with them1) – the call blocking service doesn’t work – you get a card with the phones that give you the option to manage your calls – option 2 is to accept the call always – i’ve pressed that when my family have called and it does not work. Even adding them to the ‘accept always list’ didn’t work. I’ve had to switch off this service. 2) – the clarity of call is dreadful. It sounds like you’re using a mobile phone in an area not covered by service so it’s patchy all the time ” hel-o my ‘ame is’ etc etc. This is on a full charge and within 1 ft of the station. Edit – there is a known fault that impacts the call quality which is due to proximity to the exchange.
