BT's new call blocking feature on the BT8500 will block up to 100% of nuisance calls. Premium Call Blocking will not only let you block certain numbers but this will also screen all unknown incoming calls by asking the caller to state their name, then your hear the phone ring and beable to hear whos calling and decide to accept, block or send to the answer machine, giving you full control over who you talk to.
It doesn't just stop there on the BT8500 you can also Block by number this allows you to block up to 1000 individual numbers, choose the type of calls to block with the Block by type for example mobiles, international, withheld, unknown, payphones numbers and also block numbers by area or suffix code. Sometimes you need that bit of peace and quiet and really don't want to hear the phone ringing then you can use the Do Not Disturb mode which allows you to turn off the ringer and illuminations, however if you still want those all important numbers such as family members to get through then just add their numbers to the VIP list and then the phone will ring if they call.
The BT 8500 has been designed to be a stylish and sexy looking phone that will look great in any room, but will not take up all the table or shelf space. The handset has been designed to give you the ultimate in comfort and usability, the sound is now clearer so you don't miss a word while in a call, buttons will still work like they were new even after the 1000th press, a nice large 1.8inch color display that is easy to read and a backlit keypad making it easy to see and dial keys anytime of the day and night.

brilliant Review by Jeanette
Quality Value Price
having been plagued by a vast amount of nuisance calls over the past few years - an increasing amount, I did a lot of reading about the different ways that you can put an end to these unwanted calls and I am glad to say that the BT 8500 does what it says on the box.
No longer do I pick up the phone ( ever ) to feel annoyed and insulted by some weirdo trying to sell me something because the call Guardian stops ALL of them.
I should point out for anyone thinking of getting one that you need to get Caller Display from your provider for most of the functions to work, but once that is done it is plain sailing.
Thank you Telephones Online . (Posted on 11/12/2014)
