In need of a new (Landline) Handset

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Slightly different from the status quo in this subforum i know, but i'm in need of a new landline handset with specific functionality.

Long story short: I'm sick of paying for others calls to mobile numbers.

I rang my provider (BT) who wish to charge me £4 for "Call barring" Which i find fundamentally wrong: Why on earth would i pay MORE to NOT use their services? Thats crazy. So "Blocks" on my Providers end isn't going to happen, just out of principle.

So the only option really is to have a handset with the ability to block outgoing calls by group. As i'm blocking mobiles (and keeping landlines) all i need is to block 07 numbers only.

I've yet to find a handset that can gauarantee it does this though. I seem to find plenty of ones which block "Nusience calls" (Ie: Incoming) but none i can see that block outgoing.


This is surely a simple request and feature in a modern handset, so can anyone recommend me any?

Appreciate help.

This page seems to have a bunch of people with the same issue.
