      Mobile phone calls

      Hi All,
      Is there anyway to stop outgoing mobile phone calls with skytalk?
      I have just switched over to save valuable pennies, but need to stop teenager ringing mobiles!

      Only solution I can find is Commtel Phone Guard but that appears to be out of date now

      I have phoned Sky, but as yet they have no plans to allow call barring!
      All help much appreciated

      Blimey I never new that, I have used BT call baring alot in the past when I had guests from oversea's staying for 6 month's. I wouldn't have given it a second thought when swaping phone provider.

      They don't offer a service to block mobile calls on your landline.

      At present there are 2 type's of blocking they can do for calls.
      The first is to block incoming and outgoing calls altogether.
      The second is the option to block outgoing international and premium rate calls.

      There is a pin number feature coming to sky talk calls in June/July. The details are a bit sketchy at the moment, but I'll let you know more info when I have it.

      As far as I know, they don't offer a service to block mobile calls on landlines. To make sure, try to call the costumer service or the office and ask if they have.

      Re: Mobile phone calls

      I have the same problem. I have spoken to sky and they don't offer any means of blocking out going calls. Bit bad I think. I hope they do put some sort of service to be able to do this as most other phone providers do. It must be a simples thing with the technology we have with digital lines.

      Re: Mobile phone calls

      You can now adjust a slider to notify you should your calls for a month exceed a specific figure. Whilst this won't stop mobile calls from being made, it will allow you to know earlier if your calls for the month are going to be costly.

      Visit the Sky website, log in to your 'My Sky' account. Navigate to 'Bills and Payments', scroll down a little to see under the 'Sky Talk' banner the "Call charge alerts" link. Click this and a pop up window will open.

      The minimum is 20. The other options are in multiples of 10 up to 50.

      Re: Mobile phone calls

      There is a way to block outgoing mobile calls with Sky and any other provider, but it involves programming the home hand set to do so. The only ones I personally know that work in this way are Panasonic, its called Call Restrict as opposed to Call barred, which can be used to bar incoming calls. To block mobile calls the mobile prefix, 07 is entered into the Restricted list. Page 30 of this PDF show how it is done - http://www.digitalhomenetworks.com/w...061-Manual.pdf

      Obviously if you use this method you must set up a PIN for the handsets and keep it secret.

      Mobile phone calls

      Get a cordless phone and when you go out take the handset with you?
