BT8500 Enhanced Call Blocker Cordless Home Phone, No nuisance calls for me anymore.

These phones do exactly what they are supposed to do and that is screen calls from people you may not want to speak to while giving genuine callers the opportunity to speak thier name and then press a key on thier own handsets. If this key press is not made after giving the caller 2 chances the call is not put through. The need for the key press stops those pre-recorded calls. Unlike some call screening devices this unit does give the genuine anonymous caller the opportunity to be connected (eg my doctors who always withold thier number). Genuine callers would normally follow the instructions and after that you can add thier numbers to the bt 8500’s phone book or the allowed list so that in future they are connected without the screening process. You can also add numbers to your phone book before any calls are placed so that caller is never screened. Eg i just popped my mums number in the phone book and, to her, ours is just a normal phone. There are other options for vips who can contact you at any time while the bt 8500 can be set up to refuse all calls made between certain hours. Maybe daytime for night workers or more usually night time for the rest of us.

Excellent phone, very powerful and fantastic value for money. Very simple set up wizard takes you through the process of getting your phones set up and ready to use,2. Stylish and slick handsets in black and grey,3. Has built in digital answering machine with powerful call guardian features to stop spam/junk/sales calls,4.

    Didn’t like them at first, but after comparing them with some panasonics costing much the same, the bt ones are superior.

    The phone is good but the manual seems pretty useless. I just seems to describe what you can see on the screen without any explanation.
