Product overview

  • Quad


Standard Due date unavailable


The BT8600 comes with BT's unique Virtual Assistant, which means you'll never have to speak to another cold caller again*

  • Virtual Assistant screens incoming calls
  • Numbers on your contact list get straight through
  • Numbers you have blocked are rejected
  • For all other calls, the Virtual Assistant 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

Key Features

  • Block 1000 individual numbers
  • Block calls by number and type - such as mobile, withheld, payphone, area code and international
  • One touch call blocking
  • 1.8'' Colour Screen
  • Automatically copies contacts between handsets
  • 60 minutes of messages on the answerphone

Even more advanced call blocking*

  • Block by type - choose the type of calls you want to block. For example mobile, international, withheld, unknown or payphone numbers can all be blocked. Plus you can even block numbers by area code or suffix
  • One touch call blocking - simply press the one touch button if you don't want to take the call and send the number to the blocked list
  • Do Not Disturb - For peace and quiet, switch on Do Not Disturb so that your phone won't ring or light up. Friends and family that are tagged as VIP's in your address book can still get through

5* It works - cold calls blocked!
Reviewed by John W on 04/12/2016
Finally we have peace from all those international & cold callers.
Package delivered very promptly.
Handbook a bit daunting but actual setup & operation very straightforward.
Easy to add contacts & sound very clear.
Early days but so far very satisfied
5* Peace at last

Bought this phone three weeks ago and what a blessing. No more cold calls, no more interrupted meals, do not disturb switched on, knowing that we we get up in a morning we are not going to be pestered by unwanted calls. Hands free is superb. Volume control for hand sets is so easy to alter.
3* It's Good But Has Annoying Problems!
Reviewed by Bradley on 04/08/2016
As well as not being able to transfer telephone numbers from an old set to the new you also cannnot transfer a call from one (new) handset to another (for example, the bedroom one to the kitchen one). If, for example just one handset is off it's base unit/recharger and can't be found and you press find on the base/answer machine unit every 'phone rings to let you know where it is not JUST the ones(s) off the base unit(s)! The phone screen goes blank during a call so you have no idea if you still have a connection or not!

Still worth getting as the call blocking is good.
2* Disappointed
Reviewed by Anonymous on 24/02/2016
The sound quality is poor both with speaker on and off. I wanted to block nuisance calls but I have had to turn that function off because it partially bars all callers that have with-held numbers. Most of my incoming family calls have with-held numbers and it is hopeless having to get them to identify themselves. If I had known this, I would not have bought this set. I feel cheated by BT.
1* Disappointing Warranty Issue.
Reviewed by Lynne on 04/08/2018
I purchased a BT8600 Quad for the full price (at that time) for £93.98. One year later, one or two weeks outside the order/delivery time the phones fail to operate. Initial contact with BT (via livechat) has proved disappointing. I was directed to ring a premium number (65p per minute) for assistance. I have been unable to contact a responsible person within the organisation to discus a way forward regarding this matter. I am currently utilising an old phone set (purchased from BT). Is there anyone from the organisation reading this review who would be able to speak with me directly to further discuss?
1* dont buy this phone
Reviewed by Les on 19/11/2016
I purchased this phone & the software locks up which is a known fault, BT don't respond to your issues, the product stops working completely & you follow the fault reporting process via another company getting the required fault reference & they say that the phone should be replaced but BT don't respond & you get no replacement.
