I'll have to check, but I think my blocker can stop up to 2000 numbers. I'll do that in the morning and report back. It is one of those separate ones. Works very well. Don't get many bandits on the line now, and those that do get in are soon removed.Phones with built-in call blockers are very useful as marion says. We too have a BT6500 which does a pretty good job, the only snag is it can only save about 10 specific numbers which fills up quite quickly - I believe that the separate call blockers (which fit between your phone socket & your phone) have bigger memories and can hold many more numbers.
Hope this helps.
Would a private number come under numbers withheld because if so, it would mean that a couple of my relations of wouldn't be able to phone. However, an number of cold calls I receive are also displayed as private calls.
Yes Saffie they would show as withheld however as soon as your relative or friend speaks you pick up the phone , and then tell them when they phone always speak and if you’re at home you will answer obviously if you’re out I assume they would leave a message providing you have an answerphone
Most of mine are recorded messages and some recently have been silent, which I thought had been outlawed. Otherwise they are fron overseas.Well if your unlucky or the scammer gets lucky and you actually answer , start asking them questions fist , age , sex are they married how many children how old they how muck do the earn etc. or you could ask real personal questions !! and carry on until they can’t take it anymore or put down the phone for a few minuets
Saffie I worked in an Office for 25 years with 20+ other people obviously phones ringing all the time and believe me you quickly learn to only answer your own phone unfortunately my wife can’t resist answering ,Most of mine are recorded messages and some recently have been silent, which I thought had been outlawed. Otherwise they are fron overseas.
They aren't massively intrusive, just a pain!
