New for 2016 - BT8600 Home Phone with Advanced Call Blocker - Includes BT's unique Call Guardian to block up to 100% of Nuisance Calls.
The BT8600 Advanced Call Blocker puts you back in control by allowing you to choose the calls you want to take and those you want to block. The new Call Guardian feature, based on award-winning trueCall call blocking technology, allows you to intercept all calls from numbers not on your contact list, whilst allowing all of your saved numbers to get straight through to you, ensuring you never miss an important call. Call Guardian means that any caller not on your contact list or already blocked is required to announce their name prior to getting through, allowing you to choose which calls to accept or reject.
- Call Guardian screens incoming calls.
- Numbers on your contact list get straight through.
- For all other calls Call Guardian asks the caller to say their name and then asks the user whether they want to accept or block the call without speaking to the caller.
- Incorporates award winning trueCall call blocking technology.
Easy to Use
With the BT8600 you can save up to 200 contacts. All these contacts are automatically copied to all of your handsets. You can also see a list of who's called you, who has left a voice message, and then choose which message to listen to first. This phone also comes with Outgoing call control, allowing you to prevent any surprises on your bill by PIN protecting calls to Mobile, International, Premium Rate numbers, or even all outgoing calls. This can also be useful for elderly relatives who may generate large call costs unknowingly. Never miss a call with the Call Waiting feature--the BT8600's screen shows you who's trying to get through and, at the press of a button, you can switch to the new call or reject it. We've also made it easy to divert calls to your mobile or other numbers when you are away from home. If you want to have a 3-way call the BT8600 helps you get it set up in a few simple steps.
Advanced Call Blocking Features
Block by number, type or Do not Disturb. You can block 1000 individual numbers and you can choose the type of calls you want to block such as mobile, international, withheld, unknown or payphone numbers. You can even block numbers by area code or suffix. For those times when you just want some peace and quiet, switch on Do Not Disturb so that your phone won't ring or light up. If you want key friends and family to still get through they can do, by tagging them as VIPs in your address book.
Answer Machine Features
Save up to 60 minutes of messages and see how many messages you've got displayed clearly on the home screen. Record your own greeting or choose one of ours. Listen to your messages privately through the handset, or play them using the hands-free speaker. Hear who is calling you before you pick up. Choose how many rings you want before the machine picks up. Don't miss important messages when you are away from home, access your messages remotely.
Freedom to Move in Your House
The BT8600 has a long range of up to 300m, which lets you carry on the conversation around the house and outside. It also allows you to talk hands-free--letting you get on with things while you chat. And, with a talk time of up to 21 hours and standby time of up to 310 hours, the BT8600 is great for those long conversations.
