TalkTalk has announced charges to its landline privacy features, joining other providers such as BT, Sky and Virgin Media. We explain the new monthly cost and whether it may be better to invest in a fully tested call-blocking cordless home phone instead.
Our latest round of cordless phone tests have found a number of landline phones that lack nuisance call blocking, have short answering machine memory and are tricky to use.
Tough new measures are coming into force today to end the blight of nuisance calls. Consumers must be given the choice to 'opt-in' to receive these calls and rogue companies making unsolicited calls related to personal injury claims could now be fined up to £500,000.
If you’re in the market for a new cordless phone, you’re best off picking up a handset that’s easy-to-use, makes clear calls and blocks those pesky nuisance callers. We’ve got results for four new iDect and Panasonic home phones, one of which aced our tough lab tests to become our latest Best Buy.
