BT8500 Enhanced Call Blocker Cordless Home Phone : This has been a fantastic buy, no more nuisance calls

Best around for call blocker. I live on 3 floors and so this set of 3 is very convenient. No matter where you are in the house the reception and sound quality remains the same. The best feature has to be it does actually reduce the number of nuisance calls we all hate. Everything works well and even the screen is colour which gives more life.

A call blocker that works and 4 reasonable phones and answer machine. My primary reasons for buying this set were that i needed a set of 4 portable phones with an in-built answering machine and a means of combating the barrage of irritating calls we get from telemarketers, scammers etc. The phones and the answering machine perform their job reasonably well, but where the system really shines is in the call-blocking department – the call guardian system with truecall has totally removed the nuisance factor from unwanted calls. Yes, the phone displays that you have had a missed call, but they have not got through to ring the phone or leave a message, as the call guardian system really does deter them from doing so. Every now and again i just clear the call list of the callers who have been trying to waste my time, sell me something i don’t want or try to scam me in whatever way it is they are using currently. If they are ringing persistently, the system will allow you to block calls from the offending number or withheld or international numbers if required. So far, i have not found it necessary to do this, but i guess that it may become sensible to do this. **** important – you do need to have caller id activated on your line for call guardian to work, which from memory, costs about £2 a month through bt. You do need to program in all of the contacts and numbers that you wish to accept on a regular or frequent basis, so that friends, family etc can contact you without hassle, but if you really want peace and quiet at any time then you can set up a do not disturb function, including a timer to control how long this works for – great if you work nights or do not feel well. You can program in 200 contacts / numbers, so if someone has home, mobile and work numbers, this will use up 3 of the 200 allocated contacts.

This has been a fantastic buy, no more nuisance calls. This has been a fantastic buy, no more nuisance calls, when they have to announce themselves they know you won’t pick up so they go away, whoopee.

Dect telephone spam call blocker. It does exactly what it claims to do. The set up for the different blocking or announcing options the caller was not obvious but i still set the phone up very quickly. All the phones in the set stay in sync so only a single handset has to be set up for any of the settings. We are blocking numerous unavailable callers and quite a few withheld that choose not to announce who they are. The only slight negative is that with dect phones that can store 200 contact numbers there is no easy way to load them. Earlier bt phones have had a copy from simm card option. An easier way should be considered for the next bt generation.

This phone is brilliant got rid of all the calls you do not want.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • The End To Cold Calls
  • A call blocker that works and 4 reasonable phones and answer machine!!
  • A good night’s sleep all round!

Perfect as described, call blocking features are really helpful as and easy to use. Great sound quality and can hear clearly whilst taking even with background noise.

Absolutely brilliant, it does to full exactly what it says it will do, easy set-up, nice style, we were getting 2 to 3 cold calls every day and have done for years so enough was enough, since purchasing this call blocker phone we have not had to answer any cold calls at all, the clever thing is phone screen displays the numbers it has blocked and gives you the opportunity to block them forever, for this phone to work properly you must subscribe to caller display which is not costly, yes a great phone.

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

    Does what the manual says blocks nuisance calls ,very pleased.
      1. 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.
