About this product


Product overview

• Twin phone set, which uses DECT technology to reduce interference from outside sources
• Built-in nuisance call blocking to stop telemarketers and withheld numbers from ringing you
• 60-minute answer machine so you don’t miss any important calls
• Cordless phone so you can roam freely

What is the benefit of having a cordless phone?
Cordless phones allow you to be mobile while still talking. This means you aren’t restricted to a set distance, like you were with older corded phones. With a slim and compact design, you will find that carrying this phone around in your pocket isn’t a burden and makes using the phone comfortable for longer conversations.

How does the call blocking function work?
The BT 8600 includes an advanced call blocking powered by trueCalls technology, which helps prevent cold callers and nuisance phone calls. It does this by asking the caller to say their name and then asks you if you wish to block the caller. Over time the phone learns which numbers you answer and reject. The phone can also store 1000 individual numbers, giving you more options to stop those nuisance phone calls. You can flag your friends and family as VIP in your address book which will allow them to bypass the call blocker.

What sort of answer phone is on this telephone?
This phone comes with a built-in answer phone which stores messages on the internal memory. It is possible to store up to 60-minutes of messages and you can either record your own message or use the standard greeting. Using the answer machine is easy and simple. When you see ‘new message’ displayed on the handset, press the play button and press erase if you want to delete the message. Remote access can be configured in the phone's settings

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marvellous Phone Bought this to try and stop all the nuisance calls we receive several times a day, even though we are on TPS. Read the reviews and purchased. We are so glad that we did! haven't had one unwanted call - peace at last. Easy to set up with good handbook, and of smart and neat appearance. It does sound a bit scary saying the call is being monitored by the BT Guardian but it does an excellent job. So great product - thank you BT and Maplins of course.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more unwanted calls Bought this a couple of weeks ago. Since callers (other than people you request to be available to) need to announce themselves, anyone cold calling just don't bother and hang up. Not had one nuisance call since. Highly recommend.

Yes, both handsets will ring when you receive a call if the handset is in range of the base station.
