    Really happy

    Really happy with this phone. Very easy to use. Comfortable to hold and will stand upright on a flat surface, which is good for handsfree. Great features. I like the alert that lets you know when it needs charging. Would recommend!

    Great phone, great service

    This cordless phone from Gigaset is fantastic. We haven't got to grips with (or even tested out) all of the features yet but have been using for 3 weeks and have been extremely impressed.Sound quality is brilliant, and the volume is much louder and clearer than the set of phones it replaced. The display and menus are clear and easy to use, and adding number to the handset is very straightforward. We’ve been so happy with them we decided to buy another handset for upstairs.

    Pros
    • Sound quality is truly excellent - better than any of our previous phones
    • Sharing the phonebook between handsets was very easy
    • Good volume on ringer
    • Handsfree works well - you can stand the handset upright
    • Long battery life• Very good range• Intercom between handsets (saves us having to shout up and downstairs to one another - different ring for internal calls so you always know)
    • Clear and comprehensive user manual

    Cons
    • Ringtone selection could be better
    • The phone comes with a lot of keytones and makes a lot of beeps, for instance when you place the handset in the charger (have managed to switch them all off though…)

    Very impressed with this phone and when the time comes to replace them I will be buying Gigaset again. Highly recommended! J. Peveril

    Far better than BT!

    This is a great set of phones, which was bought to replace an older BT set that stopped working and then a faulty replacement BT set. This Gigaset feels much better made and sound quality is much clearer. It also allows you to manage the answering machine (from listening to messages to changing the settings) from any handset. It also allows you to listen to messages whilst away as well as an option of recieving alerts on your mobile when a message has been left and then playing it to you.Nice large colour display to see what you are doing and who is calling as well as an option to play different tunes so you know who is calling before you answer (worth noting that you need Caller ID service from your line provider for this to work).

    A step back for Gigaset...?

    The phones are nice and clear, easy to set up, and have good sound. But there are three annoying niggles:1) The handset sometimes doesn't sit on the base easily every time.2) The two announcements are a pain to switch from one to the other3) To switch on the answering machine you have to go into the menu. With the last Gigaset I had all I had to do was press one button, why have they made it less convenient?

    Budget to replace in 1 year

    A great phone when it's working. But that won't last long, reliably.
    The first set of four handsets we bought were great, but within a year one of them refused to charge, despite showing full charge on the handset. This meant calls were simply dropped after a minute or so. One by one the other handsets went the same way until after about 14 months the whole lot had failed.
    Finding it hard to believe, and that we had a duff set, we bought another set of four to replace the originals. I shouldn't have been surprised when the same thing happened again - and then found a whole load of comments on the 'net reporting this as a typical problem with Siemens phones, which the suppliers refuse to acknowledge. So no more Siemens in this household, sorry.

    Excellent phone

    The loudspeaker on handset is better than expected and the phone has more features than expected all of which we’ve found to be really useful. The display and menu is clear and intuitive. Less impressed with the selection of ringtones….However, overall it is an excellent phone and good value for money.
