Blocking outgoing calls

Post by Wazzaf » Sun Aug 01, 2010 10:56 am

Hello Friends

Is there any way of making it that you have to enter a password before you can make a phone call from a household handset.

I guess what I am saying is can you password protect the phone number to block outgoing calls unless authorised.

Any help would be appreciated

Regards

PS have tried to search the forum for an amswer without success

My Panasonics (used as VoIP phones) can be set up to block numbers or STD regions, but it would be a king-size pain to navigate the menu to unblock one for individual calls. You could have two VoIP accounts, with outgoing barring set on one of them, each with its own handset. You could keep the unbarred handset locked away.
