    Great phone, great service

    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!

    BT 8600

    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.

    Rubbish! Steer clear!

    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!

    Good effective and cheap

    Had this phone over a year now and no complaints at all. It does the job that i bought it for as in a call blocker.Compare this phone with other foreign ones and it is relatively cheap.

    Very poor

    They have been replaced twice already because they were faulty. Ligo have very kindly arranged for this set to be exchanged with something by Gigaset....fingers crossed this is the end to this sorry saga.

    Not happy

    Found the BT phone very hard to setup. If it wasn't for the patience of the staff at ligo they'd have ended up in the bin!!

    Poor build quality

    Great call blocking features but the phone is let down by bad build quality. Handset feels cheap and you need to press the buttons quite firmly when dialling. Menu is also slow. Disappointing...

    Not great

    I haven't made my mind up. It's certainly blocked all our unwanted calls but the sound is tinny (worse than the ancient Panasonic phones it replaced which is disappointing) . Instructions not entirely clear either...

    Terrible! DO NOT BUY

    One of the worst purchases I have ever made. Found it extremely difficult to set-up as the instructions which came with the telephone are difficult to follow. Had to call the BT help line twice and they were utterly useless. Got on better with ligo who at least tried to help. The call blocker would work on every single call which I received even though I had saved friends and family as VIP. In the end my friends and family stopped calling me because it was so difficult to get through, and I wasn’t able to see who’d called because the system said NO NUMBER, which it shows for every single call. After my second call to ligo it was concluded there must be a fault with it. Returns process was find. I would deal with ligo again bt will never be buying a BT phone again!!! So disappointing because if this phone had worked as it was supposed to then it would have been perfect….

    One good thing!

    Apart from the True Call blocking feature this is a fairly mundane if not slow / poor phone.

    The True call blocking feature is great and if you need it then be prepared to put up with an otherwise old style phone.
