    This review is from: BT 4500 Cordless Big Button Phone with Answer Machine and Nuisance Call Blocker (Pack of 2) (Electronics)
    My elderly mother was having real problems with nuisance callers – and with rapidly decreasing mobility it was sad to see her fight her way to the (tethered) phone and, if she made it in time, to be greeted by either a dead phone or someone offering her recompense for PPI that she had never bought. The crunch came when I answered the phone on a visit and was greeted by someone that told me that my computer at this address had developed a security fault and he would fix it for me – after I explained that the number was owned was a 90 years old who wouldn’t recognised a computer if it hit her over the head, he became obscenely abusive.It appears that registering with the Telephone Preference Service has little effect on these calls as they are made from outside of the UK.

    BT advice was to buy the 4500. They could have sold it direct to me (but the price was higher than Amazon!). I took their advice and bought a two phone system, placing the main phone where the corded had been and the other by my mother’s favourite seat in the back of the house (so she wouldn’t have to walk).

    Set up was as simple as it could be – a walk through menu – and I took the option of blocking all overseas numbers and numbers with-held. Easy. If you want a really secure setup, then key in the family numbers that you have as favourites and then accept calls from only those numbers. When someone rings from a blocked number the call will be answered by the answering machine automatically and the phone won’t even ring – my mother can then call back anyone who cares to leave a message if she wishes, or just ignore them. Does the job and does it well it seems.

    One important thing to remember with these – and all other cordless phones – is that they don’t work if the mains power is cut off for any reason. Make sure that you have at least one other corded phone that doesn’t require external power (i.e., is connected just by the phone plug) connected for use in such an emergency.
