BT6500 - New in 2013

Fed up with sales calls interrupting you at home? The new BT6500 brings you unique functionality to block nuisance or unwanted calls. Its call management feature puts you back in control, by enabling you to choose the calls you want to take and those you want to block.

Designed in the UK, the BT6500 offers you a large easy to read display, great sound quality and tons of simple to use features. The BT6500's built in answer machine comes with 30 minutes record time - all in an energy efficient package.

Block Nuisance Calls

With the BT6500 you can choose the type of calls you want to block. For example international and withheld numbers can be blocked, which account for a large proportion of unwanted sales calls. Calls still go through to the answer machine, so if it's someone you want to hear from they can still leave a message. Alternatively if there are specific numbers you want to block, you can block up to 10 numbers from getting through.

The 1.8" full graphic display is large enough for text messaging

Full of Features that are Simple to Use

Do Not Disturb - For those times when you just want some piece 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 VIP's in your address book.

Visual Voicemail - See a list of who's called you, and choose which message to listen to first.

Parental Control - 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 have a habit of racking up big bills unknowingly.

Call Waiting - 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 you to your mobile or other numbers for when you are away from home. Or if you want to have a 3 way call the BT6500 helps you get it set up in a few simple steps.

All Your Numbers at Your Fingertips

With the BT6500 you can save up to 200 contacts, letting you keep track of all your favourite people. All these contacts are automatically copied to all of your handsets, ensuring you always have the numbers you need, and saving you time entering them more than once.

Large and durable buttons make dialling easy and accurate.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Phone made me feel a little sad ; 9 Feb 2013
Style Name:Twin
I didn't buy this phone from Amazon as intended, as there was a rush on stock following many positive newspaper articles, and I didn't want to wait. My wife and I were fed up with the increasing volume of nuisance calls selling everything from PPI and Accident claims to annoying "surveys". Then there are the "silent" calls, where no-one answers (I'm told that these are automated calls that add your number to a list when the phone is answered. Your number is then sold on as a "live" number to marketing companies.) Very annoying. Accordingly I popped down the local shops and got one this weekend. It was a little more expensive than the Amazon one but we were desperate!

I only now realise how many nuisance calls we received, as the house is strangely silent. We can eat our meals in peace, without having to tell yet another teleseller that that is NOT how to pronounce our name, and NO, we don't buy anything or take surveys by phone. How many times have I told you - I HAVEN'T had an accident, Go Away! I've suddenly realised, all those phone calls were not from friends and relatives wanting to chat - they were mainly people after our money! Now hardly anyone rings - I feel bereft, somewhat unpopular and unneeded.
But I'll survive.

Opening the box,I was surprised to see there is no manual in there, nor even a "Quick Start" sheet. No paperwork at all. *(see comments for more info - there is a quick start guide hidden in there!) Oh well, the blurb says that its easy to use, so lets see. I carefully unpacked the contents, and saw that little tags were attached to the handsets through the battery cover. They advised that the phone sets need charging for 24 hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great phones! 8 Jun 2013
By Mrs M
Style Name:Twin|Verified Purchase
We recently upgraded from Panasonic DECT phones. Things I love about this phone: 1. The nuisance call blocking; 2. the 'do not disturb' feature - where you can set prescribed times for the phone not to ring, or you can switch this on and off when needed; 3. the clear display that tells you when you have missed calls.

I find the sound quality fine - which seems to be the subject of criticism in other reviews.

Overall no complaints

5.0 out of 5 stars Bit spooky but really does the job! 26 April 2013
Style Name:Quad|Verified Purchase
We were receiving a large number of nuisance calls each day and some in the middle of the night so decided to invest in a phone system that filters what we receive. Purchased this system and set the filter to remove the calls we didn't want. It works really well but, any of our friends that "withhold" their numbers are also filtered out so a slight downer but it's better than getting bombarded with rubish. The spooky bit is that when it receives a call that is filtered, the screen of the hand sets goes blue and if its in eyesight you notice the blue glare specially if the room is dark!
Since we set it up we have not had to answer an "Out of area", "International", or "withheld" nuisance call but we have had a lot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Say goodbye to sales calls 24 April 2013
By Stevo
Style Name:Twin|Verified Purchase
I bought these mainly because I was fed up with the nasty Binatone bargain bin phones the 6500 replaced . Very simple and straight forward to set up , nice quality and clarity of calls is amazing compared to inferior quality I am used to! The best thing is the barring facility. I have tried the preferential user service for some time and frankly it does not work. First thing I did was bar international calls-- that worked (upset my son in Madrid though) literally overnight the nuisance calls have stopped. There are plenty of other methods to "control" who phones you a little less dramatic than my method and that's the beauty of these phones. I am still "playing" with the features (there are many to play with!) and have quickly picked up pretty much everything without resorting to the instruction manual (always a good thing).
The menus are simple to navigate the screen is crystal clear and the numbers are a decent size and spacing. This is a nice feature if- like me you have sausage fingers, so far I haven't dialled any wrong numbers in error. If you are looking to buy these you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed 6 Dec 2013
By Fin
Style Name:Twin|Verified Purchase
The old cordless phone we had was getting crackly, so time for a new one. Having looked around the shops and the net, and seeing this phone with no doubt the feature that will attract most people to it "Nuisance call blocking"

I however did not really want a phone with an answering machine, but the call blocking was pulling me more and more, so rather than pay full price I opted for a refurbished one from one of the sellers on Amazon, for about half price I was quite impressed how well it looked when it arrived (still can't see any signs of it being used before)

Arrived and was easy to setup, the answer machine is easy enough to switch off if you are like myself and have the BT answering service anyway

You need to input the names and numbers yourself, that itself is very easy to do and you assign each name a 3 different numbers "Home" "Mobile" "Work" then you can assign a ring tone for the person. Unfortunately it will be the same tone for each contacts number, if you wanted a different tone for that particular person's different numbers you would need to then save each individual number as a separate contact (something I did) there is 15 tones for handset (with 5 tones for base)
..some are ok and some rather annoying, but I found the simple ring ring fine and loud, as are most of the ring tones (you can adjust the volume of not just the handset but the base itself) Rest of the set up is quite easy, even without the one time setup that comes up when you first start the phone up

Calls are nice and crisp (no crackle) and also not like on last one where by you could hardly hear the person calling, you can also turn the volume up or down for that.
