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.
- 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.

- Large 1.8" full graphic display. See instantly how many voice messages, missed calls or text messages you have. Large enough screen for text messaging.
