BT has launched BT Halo, a new home phone that allows customers to make and receive mobile calls from their home phone using Bluetooth technology.
This is one of the new generation wireless home phones that can integrate with your mobile phone and give you cheaper mobile calls from home. It can even access your mobile phone contact list.
It has all of the usual features you’d expect with a home phone – an answer machine, hands free option etc and it is wireless.
It’s increasingly common now for new home phones to include call screening and the BT Halo includes BT’s Premium Nuisance Call Blocking service.
Whether its nuisance calls, marketing and sales calls or just callers you don’t want to talk to – it’s useful to be able to block them.
You can choose to block specific numbers or only let calls through from people you know. You do have to pay for the BT caller display service to get full functionality from the phone.
If you have problems with cold callers then do register with the Telephone Preference Service at www.tpsonline.org.uk and try one of the new generation home phones that come with call blocking features.
The BT Halo is available now from the BT Shop and a single unit is £99.99 and the BT Halo Twin is £139.99.
It’s not the cheapest of wireless home phones but worth a look, especially for the call blocking features.
