BT 8500 Digital Cordless Phone with Advanced Call Blocker

The BT 8500 has been designed to offer reliable sound quality, ease-of-use, and the facility to combat unwanted calls to your home. The stylish and ergonomic design lends itself well to comfortable everyday use, and the handset is packed with an array of useful DECT features to take advantage of: including a 200 name and number phonebook, handsfree, and more.


The design of the 8500 follows in the footsteps of previous BT models; the handset is equipped with an in-built loudspeaker and specially shaped ear-bowl for maximum clarity. There is a large bright display ideal for finding out who’s calling (if you’re subscribed to Caller ID), and the illuminated keypad makes it easy to navigate through the intuitive menus or adjust volume levels to suit your preference.BT 8500

BT 6500 Cordless Phone | Block Nuisance Calls

Nuisance call blocking

Designed to help you take care of unwanted disturbances in your home caused by nuisance sales calls; the BT8500 is equipped with BT’s latest call blocking technology which enables you to prevent incoming calls from withheld and international numbers (which account for the largest proportion of nuisance calls). You can also blacklist specific numbers, as well as take advantage of the Do not Disturb mode.

Keeps messages under control

The base station features a reliable integrated answer machine, which provides a total of up to 60 minutes of recording time. Messages can be accessed and played back directly from the base or via the handset; and there is the facility to set-up the answering machine for remote access should you need to check in when you’re away.

Why should you buy this cordless phone?

If you’re looking for a user-friendly landline phone that will deliver dependable audio and range; the BT 8500 is an ideal choice and comes with the added benefit of call blocking to restore peace and quiet to your home.
