Found 10th Oct 2016
BT8500 single cordless phone, was looking for one after an increasingly amount of nuisance calls and this was suggested.

Says £40 but £30 online (discount applied at checkout), with limited stock available.

Also went through Quidco and tracked at £40, so got an additional £1.20 off.

Haven't really heard many good things about BT's call-blocking as they seem to get through anyway. We got one of those CPR call blocker things (cheaper refurbished on fleabay) and it's cut down ours by 90% after blocking all with-held/unavailable numbers, and the odd one that gets through with an actual number. Installed it for some elderly relatives as well and they haven't gotten a single nuisance call since - although I worry they're just that bit more lonely now!

FYI this can block all withheld numbers, international numbers and can ask the caller to announce themselves for you to choose whether to answer. Or any combination of the above.

I have one of these phones and I can recommend them. We haven't been bothered with nuisance calls since its been used. The previous phone had no call blocker so used to get 10+ nuisance calls per day! oO

No idea where you get that from, I use this phone and it blocks every single nuisance call 100% of the time. Can't recommend this enough. Hot for me.

Cracking phones but a pretty ordinary price, especially as this model has been superceded by the slightly better BT8600.

Got this exact phone, trust me, with this in your house no-one phones you unless you let them through truecaller, I even have installed on my Android phone, it works on Apple and windows phones as well, get it HERE

Sorry but I got these 3 months ago and they are brilliant no longer do we have unwanted sales calls or idiots telling us our pc or cat is infected or PPI.

We dumped the call blocker and these phones win hands down.

Cheers for correcting my previous misconception all - I stand corrected!

Just bought the 8610 from JL, can someone tell me if this blocks withheld numbers (i.e. anonymous calls) too, and also if you need to pay for any additional services from you phone provider, Virgin Media in my case.
Thanks
