Re: call barring

Hi emmals, unfortunately it is not possible for sky to add a feature to your line to block outgoing calls to mobile numbers. However there are a few phone handsets on the market that allow you to do this by programming in the numbers you wish to block dialling out for example all numbers beginning 07.

Re: call barring

Hi Robert.

 

I'd really like to know some more information about these "few handsets" that you mention. My wife and I have tried every shop that we can think of to locate a phone that can bar specific numbers (e.g. by using a PIN number), as we foolishly assumed that we'd be able to do this with Sky as we had when we were still with BT. However, nobody seems to know of a suitable make - most have told us that Sky do this sort of feature.

 

Please help - my step-daughter is running up huge bills on mobile calls, and we're likely to have to cancel all outgoing calls otherwise, or be cut off.

Re: call barring

I would also like to have a PIN no for all outgoing calls but obviously Sky and others do not offer this service as it would reduce their revenues....

Re: call barring

Hmm - I'm surprised that we've not had any replies from Sky after a month in this regard. Am currently waiting on the phone, in order to change to incoming calls only. Very disappointed - changed to Sky as I felt they were offering far better service than BT, so not sure why we can't get any advice re appropriate ways of dealing with a very common problem (although I don't think it's as simple as keeping revenues up...).
