BT 8500 Trio: Set of 3 easy to use landline cordless phones

If you’re fed up of receicing nuisance sales calls, BT’s latest trio set of cordless phones have got your covered with their intuitive call blocking features. Further benefits of the BT 8500 include an integrated answering machine on the base for up to 60 minutes of messages, high-quality loudspeaker for hands-free calls, and a stylish user-friendly design.

No more unwanted sales calls

The BT 8500 will enable you to stop receiving calls from withheld and international numbers which account for a lot of sales calls; whilst a blacklist feature can be used to prevent specific numbers from getting through restoring peace and quiet to your home.

User-friendly & practical DECT features

As with most BT phones the 8500 is straightforward to set-up with on-screen prompts for getting started. Up to 200 contacts can be stored in the name and number directory, which can be conveniently copied between the three handsets. You can use the handsets to intercom with one another with the handset naming feature making the process even easier.
