First -time poster needs help re Phone security/queries

Hi All, sorry if the thread heading is a little vague. In simple terms there are two things I need help omn.
Firstly my itemised billing shows a day of premium calls made to what looks like porn/adult sites. We are 90% sure they were not made from the home and it is both worrying and confusing. Does anyone have a Plusnet contact number that might help.
secondly. My friend, whose phone it wants to do all she can to avoid unwanted use of her phone, I realise she can use a pin to lock her hand held phone, but of course if another phone where plugged in it would still be a problem. is it possible to do a more secure locking, of say the actual line.
am really a novice in all this technology stuff! so apologies if its all a tad more obvious than i imagine. Many thanks

It is however a bit messy to use as it appears that you would need to remove call barring before making a call and then reimpose it
