BT digital voice handsets

Go to solution

Hopefully a simple question.

 

I have been migrated to BT Digital Voice and I have a BT "Advanced Digital home phone" and a BT "Essential Digital home phone".

 

Simple question  - how do I lock the keypad on both of these devices? 

I walk around the house/garden with the phone in my pocket and the keypad keeps activating, previous DECT phones I have owned had a key combination to lock the keypad to avoid inadvertent key presses?

 

Many thanks for your help

Thanks for your prompt reply - thats a shame, pretty basic function of most portable phones I would have said.

It may not be documented, but have you tried holding down the # key for a couple of seconds, as that works on other BT models?

thanks - just tried on the digital advanced handset and didn't work, worth trying though.

On the Advanced Digital Home Phone there is a sort-of lock. With the display lit up and idle, press the key below 'Menu' momentarily. 'Call Features' appearswith a handset, key with a circle round them.  That's it. Unfortunately putting it in my pocket inevitably touches one of the keys that can unlock it! 

Why didn't BT didn't stick to  a locking method used on other cordless phones...? 

Incidentally I found this by pressing buttons - not in any instructions.
