BT8500 Home Phone with Advanced Call Blocker--Includes BT's unique Call Guardian to block up to 100% of Nuisance Calls

The BT8500 DECT Home Phone puts you back in control by allowing you to choose the calls you want to take and those you want to block. The new Call Guardian feature, based on award-winning trueCall call blocking technology, allows you to intercept all calls from numbers not on your contact list, whilst allowing all of your saved numbers to get straight through to you, ensuring you never miss an important call. Call Guardian means that any caller not on your contact list or already blocked is required to announce their name prior to getting through, allowing you to choose which calls to accept or reject.

This is £10 cheaper than BT shop and Amazon. Paid £55 for mine last week

Also single for £34.99.

To be fair the Amazon one is new and this is reconditioned, So you did not get such a bad deal from them.

Still think it's funny they can get away with saying "block up to 100%" will the next improved version block up to "110%"? My Current phone also blocks up to 100% of nuisance calls, it's a feature called "don't plug it in".

so when they announce their name what happens? does it display it on the screen, does it say it out loud, in which case does the phone still ring? I don't get how this works so would appreciate your input

you have to programme the phone once the first call has come in or if you know the number, it gives them a message and the phone doesn't ring your end...it doesn't connect at all.
I tested this for BT, it's a robust phone with clear display and easy to use features.

They ring, it places them on hold and records them saying who they are. It rings through, when you pick up it plays back the recording of them announcing who they are. You then press 1 to accept the call, 2 to accept and allow that number to get straight through in future, 3 to block them and 4 to send to answer machine.

Excellent phones, highly recommended. The handsets themselves are nice modern looking units too.

so if the number isn't on your block list it's still going to ring the first time round until you block it. got it thanks. so does this one have a limit to how many numbers you can block like the other deal for the bt6500
