      I am currently with BT and have the BT 8600 Guardian phones. If I join Skytalk, will this phone operate as normal without the Sky equivalent and will I be able to use it with the Sky equivalent?
      Thanks

      Re: Nuisance and Unwanted Calls

      I have that phone and I also have Skytalk and my robot still works. Going back to something else that was said in this thread. Is there any more information on any progress with Sky and Call blocking.

      According to the Compatibility List if you want to use Sky Shield, you will need to disable the blocking features of your phone.
      • You won’t be able to get Sky Talk Shield if you have a different broadband provider, leave Sky or are in a non-Sky Network area.
      • For Sky Talk Shield to work you will need to disable other call blocking products and some non-Sky voicemail services.
      • If you have Sky’s Anonymous Caller Reject or Last Caller Barring features, these will automatically be removed from your account when you add Sky Talk Shield.
      • The Call Screening feature is not compatible with text phones and fax machines.
      • It is strongly recommended that security or care alarm providers should be added to your Star List.
      • Sky Talk Shield will work with any push-button landline telephone. If your handset has a built-in call screening service, you will need to disable this in order for Sky Talk Shield to work effectively.
      I have the Shield and it works very well. Once you get past the first few weeks and get all your regular callers on the Star list, nuisance calls about PPI, virus in PCs etc are a think of the past.
