The average British person receives four nuisance calls a week and unsurprisingly 60% people find receiving such calls stressful according to research by BT. Unfortunately over the last few years there has been an increase in nuisance calls, from speculative PPI claims to automated marketing messages.
There are a number of services available to block such calls, and we list them for you below. They all work in a similar manner to BT Call Protect.
BT Call Protect will help customers avoid nuisance calls on their landline by diverting unwanted calls to junk voicemail.
BT will identify nuisance calls on the BT Blacklist which will automatically send them to your junk voicemail.
You can also create your own personal blacklist to send all future calls from unwanted numbers to your junk voicemail.
BT Call Protect makes it very simple to divert nuisance calls. If you receive an nuisance call, hang up the phone, dial 1572 and follow the simple instructions to add it to your Personal blacklist.
