Nowadays I very seldom receive an unwanted phone call - maybe one every six weeks.
I put the reason down to having stopped putting my phone number down on sites such as price comparison sites over the past three years, combined with being registered with TPS.

I, like Cardew, was hoping it might block the call I have been getting every day for the last week but it won't, because the number appearing on Caller Display is not "a valid number".
It looks as if the BT8500 is the best solution.

Do you need to have BT voicemail activated for this? How else can it divert to a email-style 'junk' voicemail inbox if I don't have voicemail?

I also fail to see how the BT 8500 phone can deal with the billions of possible computer generated phone numbers. e.g. if scammer uses 001 123 456 789 and is blacklisted/barred by the phone, what happens if the same scammer uses 001 789 456 123?

No need to. You just dial 1572 to listen to anything in the junk inbox.

What is unclear, to me at least, is what happens if I get calls showing 'international call' or 'number withheld' There is a facility on-line in manage account to bar all ''international calls' and 'number withheld' calls. However I clearly don't want to ban all those calls as I have friends abroad and some people e.g. My doctor and members of the Royal family!! who call my number. If I blacklist a scam call showing 'international call' or 'number withheld' by dialling 1572 and pressing '1' will that blacklist all 'international' and 'number withheld' calls.
How can this Forumite maximise their smart speaker?
