"you only talk to the people you want to by blocking up to 100 numbers."
that's all it says about call blocking - doesn't sound that good to me, I want to block calls from people I don't know !
Last item I bought from these guys they charged me twice for delivery!

I have the previous range "premium", and have knowledge of the " advanced" model just above this one, but as far as I'm aware they have the same call blocking features...the blocking you see referring to is additional to the real "must-have" software... Do you really want to add over 100 numbers that you "know you don't want to talk to"??

EDIT :- IT SEEMS YOURE RIGHT...*SORRY!*
HAVING CHECKED THE BT PHONE COMPARITOR IT SEEMS THIS MODEL DOESN'T HAVE THE FUNCTION I DESCRIBED BELOW.... still ok for the price but not the brilliant deal I thought it was for the 100% call blocking I assumed it had...whoops!



Anyway the 'call block' feature uses an announcement system so non phonebook call numbers are requested to announce who they are, then the phone rings if they do and plays what they say to you..you decide if you wang to accept press 1,
To accept every time(number gets added to 'normal allowed calls' ) press 2,
Reject press 3.

Or very similar......

This way you only answer what you want to but also your friends for colleagues don't have to go through the system once added to phonebook....


However the good bit is the auto calls and computer diallers don't answer correctly to the announcement feature..so the phone diedng ring at all...

But the display does show how many have been incoming but not put through so you can see how many it's blocked...

Brilliant system uses an external call ringtone too so you know it's someone new as well.

You would have to check the feature table...but that's how the advanced and premium works. There are slight phonebook, or numbers held details that separate the models as well as aesthetic differences but for 50 notes with 4 handsets this is a no brainer for the call blocking

(couldnt edit on phone earlier)

Sounds like the same call blocking system that comes with TalkTalk.Works very well.

Yes it does..theyre all based on the original "True Call" brilliant invention, however this model doesn't appear to have it:( see edit above in caps
Left the rest as ghe system is brilliant but just not this set it seems...you need the advanced or premium to get the feature sorry guys , genuine mistake :/

Virgin also have a version of it too

It really does take all sorts ... but there are people who need to use the phone a lot due to family circumstances, But dont actually like using mobile phones as they find them uncomfortable /hot/and the tone unpleasant.. Home phone do not have the same issues...
Many older people are living alone but dont have the overall wherewithall to maintain a charged mobile phone, so there really is still a place for home phones
Unfortunately it seems despite the cracking price for 4 handsets, this set doesnt have the full call blocking sotware
