How do I unblock my new BT phones?

I bought a BT Advanced Phone - Two Handsets - in February. 

I've been told by a friend that when he phoned me just now there was something that told him there was a call-blocker in place. He also said that the phone only rang three times before the call-blocker kicked in.

How do I remove the call-block and also set the phones to ring seven times, not three?

can you not remove call blocker using the menu on your phone?

Re: How do I unblock my new BT phones?

Hello. I've checked all the settings and I can't see anything in the menu relating to call blocker. Nor anything enabling me to increase the number of rings before the answerphone kicks in.

I went to 'Menu>Answer Phone>Settings>Ring Delay and was baffled by the next options viz 'Answer Only' & 'Ans & Record'. BUT at this point I'm giving up. :o((     The menu on the screen disappears after two or three seconds & I'm constantly forced to start all over again.

So may I ask an even more important question at this stage? Is there any setting that I can change to keep my screen showing all the Menu etc results for a much longer time?

Oh, and there was another problem. I was asked on several screens to input my PIN number. I was never  given a PIN number when I opened the instructions.  Some PIN-protected equipment gives you a PIN number and demands that you change it immediately but there were no instructions about this in the box.

Hi @Taffy078   

The ring delay settings (2 - 10 rings) is on page 37 of your user guide.

The Call Blocking settings appear when you press the Block key. I switch it off when I expect a call back like from Amazon customer services as it is not a human calling you initially.
