P.S I already have Premium rate calls bared from my B.T line. By doing this will it block all numbers beiong dialled out that are premium rate?

With regard to BT and premium rate barring, I am not sure but there was a thread at one time explaing that BT would or could not block all calls to preium rate numbers. I have the feeling it was numbers outside the UK that they would not block.

I've got it installed, have done for a while. Although I primarily use b/b I have a modem incase it is unavailable. It works very well, had no problems with it, no spy or adware either. I had something trying to dial out yesterday which set it off (so yes it does work! Although for me its irrelvant as I have bb)

I've downloaded it, but have yet to install. The problem is everything is in German. I can just see myself blocking all numbers and not being able to get out of it because I can't understand the instructions. I gather that you select a language when you install. I wonder if that also puts in an English Help file?

It all installs in English...its just the site that is in German.

BT would not be able to bar premium rate numbers outside the UK because they're all different. What they can do is bar international calls, to override this they will give you a pin number.

Scrap the last thread i poted, i have got the hang of it, the only safe number is the dial up number, is that ok?
