BT ( British Telecom ) have brought out yet another fantastic home phone – the BT 8500. This phone has brought new and improved call blocking features to the fore, claiming to be able to block all unwanted calls utilising previous technology as per the BT 6500 range this is further enhanced with the addition of Call Guardian and True Call.
Call Guardian has a fascinating feature which can be set, not only to block certain numbers, but to also force withheld numbers to physically identify themselves giving you the chance to decide whether to take the call, reject it or send to answer phone – freedom of choice.
In addition to this ground-breaking facility there is also the ability to mass block entire swathes by calling code, mobile, country or payphones – if you are receiving troublesome calls you now have the power to put a stop to them.
