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.

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.

This phone has made my house hold so much quieter now that the multitude of phone calls has been stopped!

I used to receive between 5-9 calls a day from 8 AM to 8 PM every single day, from companies wanting my attention to buy a government boilers, loft insulation or that my pc has a problem or that i needed to claim PPI, the list goes on and on!

This little phone has killed them, simple as that.
As i had just finished setting up the phone, it rang, well rather it lit up... the phone answered it for me, apparently it was from India, you know the type of call where they claim to be Dave or Tom, anyhow this one didn't even get through, the phone simply didn't ring, it lit up and displayed the international number and blocked it.

This happened several more times during the day (phone near the pc) so i watched in fascination as several calls were blocked :P

Ok the basics of it

It small and neat, but comfortable in my huge hands
The base does not take up that much room
Its free of those annoying tangling cords that wrap themselves around anything within grab distance (its cordless)

Easy to set up (look in the box for the instructions) not that you will need them, the phone is very intuitive to use

and IT WORKS, yes it blocks those annoying %%^&**$`s who phone you constantly, from India and elsewhere

I received a few other UK based calls, but added them into the block number list, and .... Silence!

No more nuisance calls to the house, and yes i am registered with the TPS, it seems to make things worse not better being with them, TPS- load of moo poo!

I can say after several days of NOT running to the phone to be greeted by an automated voice or a ...

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.
