    Block outgoing Calls from BT Landline to mobile phones at home

    BT tell me this is not possibe ( I know its not in their intrest as they lose revenue)

    I have just moved in with new partner and her 16 year old dughter has been known to run up £100 calls to mobiles
    As i now pay the bill i need to restrict this

    I can block all out going calls but not just calls to mobiles

    Has anyone else found a way around this or shall i stick with plan B and just cut of her fingers so she cant dial the numbers!!!!

    You used to be able to buy land-line phones that had a lock on them so you need a physical key before you can lift the receiver - that would stop it happening.

    Not really as that would block all calls - he only wants to block calls to mobiles.
    Although, if she had to ask for the key every time she made a call then someone could then monitor the number she was ringing?

    Have you looked at BT's call plans, you might find there's one that'll give free calls to mobiles. Then you'll have no bills and hopefully a happy teenager.

    Sounds like they're pulling your leg, as far as i'm aware VM used to do it and i'm sure BT must have the option of doing it.

    Speak to Retention (the people they put you through to when you say you want to leave). They'll bend over backwards to keep you with them. Cite blocking calls to mobile numbers as your condition with staying with them. Oh, and a 10% discount whilst you're at it, because you got lied to in the first place.
