Hi - through a Power of Attorney, we manage my fathers home phone; using BT Call Protect and a White List to restrict the calls he receives. Is there any way of remotely listening to any messages left on the 1572 service? (we live approx 250 miles away).
Yes, see this post and the earlier post in that thread.
I am sure @RobFletcher would be able to help, if you get stuck.
I'm pretty sure there is now way to listen to the voicemails other than from the phone in the house. Given all the issues of late over hacking and listening to voicemails, I suspect this is something BT would not want to do.
But, that said, I find that it works pretty well most of the time. Sometimes the doctors etc have a new number and so this new number needs to be verified with them and added to the VIP list. If a number keeps turning up, it's worth a quick google to see if it's (a) a known spam number, or (b) maybe a new service number as above. If you do phone it, make sure you block your number - but, in the main, if it's not on your list, then 99% it's a spam!
I did get 1471 ringback disabled for my mum's phone as well.
For reference, in just over 18 months of doing this, here's the result!
There is a mention of BT Callminder on this page.
With BT Call Minder, you can:
Not sure if that allows you to use all the features of Call Protect.
