Effective Call Blocker! () by: Keith
Good points

Easy to use, Value for money

Bad points

None

Bought these to try and put an end to tiresome automated calls after signing up to TPS seemed to do nothing. And since setting them up (which consisted of plugging them in) we haven;t been bothered by a single sales call!nnThe settings for "Call Guardian" on can be altered but the basic settings do the job fine. Probably worth noting that the call blocking features will only work if you have Caller ID. nnAll in all a cracking set of home phones, which were bought for one purpose and are good quality for everything else: sound quality, range, phonebook sharing. Highly recommend! I would recommend this to a friend!

BT 8600 () by: Anonymous
Good points

Easy to use, Looks good/design, Sound quality, Easy to set up

Bad points

Brilliant phones, not one nuisance call since plugging them in. The number of cold callers still shows up as a missed call but you don't know it's happening. Good features. The handset sharing is a good feature which should have been standard by now. I always used to ad a contact on one phone then try to dial them from the other phone! Very annoying. Also if you come in and check your missed calls then go upstairs and check the other phone it always annoyed me that it said you have missed calls. You don't get that on these phones as they update on both phones what you do. Simple but useful feature. I would recommend this to a friend!

Great phone, great service () by: Roger
Good points

Easy to use, Sound quality, Call blocking

Bad points

None

We bought this as it was the latest call blocking phone from BT and we have been inundated with cold calls and nothing else has worked. Did a lot of research online before ordering and spoke with a lovely advisor at ligo who was very patient and answered all of my questions (proper good old fashioned customer service – so nice to be able to talk to another human). Delivery was fast, arrived the following day and since setting up the phone (which was as easy as pie) we haven’t had a single nuisance call. Happy days – would highly recommend! I would recommend this to a friend!

Rubbish! Steer clear! () by: P.C
Good points

Call blocking

Bad points

sound, Range, faulty

After a couple of months they had to go back - absolutely awful.nnFirstly off the range kept dropping out. Lucky if we got 5m let alone the 50m that BT claim it can do! Sure we have thick walls in the house but our older cordless set was fine and didn't crackle and drop out as much as this.nnAnd to top it all off the screen went black and wouldn't switch on. Has now been replaced with a Gigaset phone recommended by Andy at ligo, the s850 which is a far superior model. Sound is great and no more issues with calls dropping out.nnShould say that the call blocker function of the BT 8600 is good and worked well but doesn't make up for everything else wrong with it. Do yourself a favour and steer clear of BT!

Disappointing () by: Phil
Good points

Bad points

Sound quality, Volume, Expensive

Have been using these for over a month now and have to say I'm very disappointed in the quality. They were purchased to replace an old Panasonic set, unfortunately the sound quality of these BT phones is terrible. Not only is the outgoing volume far too low so people are struggling to hear you even with the volume turned to maximum but the tinny feedback when the other person speaks is extremely poor. Won't be buying BT again....

Chines not so cheap and not very cheerful.... () by: Anonymous
Good points

Looks good/design, Truecall call blocking

Bad points

Chinese reliability, Sound quality, cheap screen, poor mic, overpriced

a cheap chinese phone which wouldnt sell on it's own merits at that price if it wasnt for the superb call blocking by Truecall (Guardian). Truecall is the best blocker by far. nnNothing else is special, tbh, and I wish I had bought the Gigaset. nnBuy cheap, and you buy twice. nnMine peggedout just out of warranty. The base unit packed in, but got extremely - and probably dangerously - hot. A fire hazard probably. nnWorst of all is the totally atrocious BT support. They just dont want to hear about any problems. nnBuy the Gigaset, or the Panasonic.

Sound quality was worse than the five year old phone it replaced. Call blocking works well but very disappointed with the quality..
