Re: call feature request

Their calls would be listed in your monthly bill, show this to them, and expect payment ?
Dependent on contracts, would it make financial sense to switch phone providers ?

Have you considered them having pre-paid PAYG or contract mobiles which have inclusive minutes to call other mobiles ?

Don't hide the phone.
Get another cheap cord between phone & wall socket, tie a loop in it, and obviously cut the loop.
Leave that cord plugged in until YOU want to use the phone, then use the good cord, it's easier to hide than a phone !
Or..... just hide the current cord until you need to use the phone.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
There may be an option to lock the keypad on your phone, it'll be in the manual, if so, hide that after you know how to do it.
My landline wireless phones have this facility.
