The Landlane 'Tax'....

It was widely reported this week that BT and others are putting up their Landline costs to offset the desertion of landlines... For the extra cost of having one, you might expect extra features, not bugs.

---So why can't we always hang-up on callers, anyone know why this 'feature' exists?

---How about adding a calling list filter, similar to Skype etc. So that nuisance calls (including silent calls) can be automatically screened out, especially for vulnerable older generations. It sounds like a useful calling package add-on and another way for BT to make money IMHO.....
