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.

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.

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...).
