Unwanted Call Blocking : BT BT8500 Call Guardian


Working from home, I regularly find myself having to put up with unwanted calls from companies wanting to provide a so-called service I do not want or have asked for. Maybe this next product could help.

A fairly recent modern phenomenon concerns the numerous cold calls we have to put up with from companies who have so little concern for the general public and think we have nothing better to do than listening to their marketing spiel. There are also...

Nuisance calls blocked

  (Rating Hidden)

While I've only been using the BT8500 for a few days, I am already very impressed.The only drawback so far is that I haven't yet entered all my phone numbers, so a call form any one of them forces the 'announce name' feature - a couple of callers have...

Goodbye cold calls.

  (Rating Hidden)

Have owned this phone since last October (2014) and haven't received any cold calls, previously they were many. Don't have a problem with sound quality or volume, and range seems fine. There is one minor issue in that the call log keeps all the calls...
