These replaced some bt phones. We started with two and i must admit they have been great. Easy to load numbers and pictures into the phonebook. Only problem is the buttons can be abit small at times and if you pick up another phone i. Non gigaset, it does not register that the call was picked up and so marks it as a missed call. Nice to have the answer phone features all accessible from all the handsets.
Had this phone for a week now and so far so good. It replaced a b&o beocom 4 and i was a little worried that sound and build quality wouldn’t be as good, but if anything it’s better. The phone is easy to set up and use, the only complaint we have are the ringtones, whilst it comes supplied with a good choice there were only two that anyone liked, this is probably a personal issue and you may find them ok. Whilst it costs a bit more than other phones i feel the quality justifies the extra. Overall i’d recommend this phone.
Quality cordless telephones. This equipment is undeniably expensive, but worth every penny. Instant and easy installation. Great feel to the handsets that look and work more like mobile phones than usual wireless bt or other wireless phones. Typically we have bought bt equipment that has always worked well, but over the last 21 years we have found that the life expectancy of a system is around 5 years before (even after replacing the rechargeable batteries) the system has had to be replaced. For the occasions when we have bought cheaper phones we have thrown some systems away after a few weeks, so this time the change was planned to last for longer. The batteries of the new phones are mobile phone types readily available from internet sellers and the features such as bluetooth connectivity to address books etc. Is easy to use and very useful. Additional handsets can be added (as we have) to extend the system. Range is exceptional and we have no reason to regret in any way our investment. Here are the specifications for the Gigaset SL400A Single DECT tooth Cordless Phone:
- Enter your model number
to make sure this fits.
- Highquality genuine metal frame and illuminated metal keypad
- Large 1.8 inch TFT colour display
- Headset connection via Bluetooth
- 45 Minute Answer Machine
- Phonebook for up to 500 vCards (name, surname, 3 numbers,email, anniversary, VIP melody and CLIP picture)
Best dect phone i’ve ever had. Looks like a mobile phone and, more importantly, has an interface a lot like a mobile (feature) phone. This is actually very clever, it makes navigating around almost intuitive. The contacts work just like you’d expect. The answer machine is also very easy to use. It’s nice that there is a message symbol that flashes to indicate missed phone calls and messages. The physical construction is pretty solid, and they look as great as they do in the pictures. The battery life is fantastic. The manual recommends letting the handset batteries run to empty before charging the first time to improve the battery life – it took days and days and i was playing with the units constantly as well. The sound quality is really good, these sound much less tinny than my previous dect phones (panasonic models).
Seemed good quality but after 2 years some buttons stopped functioning well.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Hi Tech Home Phone
- Hands down the best DECT phone you can probably buy
- A cut above the competition but still room for improvement
I bought this phone primarily for the eco mode plus function. It didn’t appear to work out of the box, and i only managed to get in working on eco mode. After several phone calls with siemens, i have solved the issue and thought i would share it. You have to first make sure the handsets are uk issue. The box needs to have -l somewhere near the bar code. Then you need to restore to factory settings – first base unit, then handsets. For base unit:disconnect cablepress down on button and reconnect cable simultaneoulsly and hold down for 5 secs, then release. For handsets:turn offpress and hold buttons 1 4 7 and red end key at same time until word service pops up. Enter 4 6 8 5 4 6 3turn back on and reregister as per user manuel.
We have a graveyard of cordless phones lurking in a box in our spare room and having despatched the latest one to the box’s depths having yet again failed miserably to stand up to our home office use(amazingly it is still being recommended on other websites), i decided to splash out a bit. A lovely, reassuringly sturdy kit which is more like two little mobile phones. Nice sized keypad so no more howls of despair from husband who used to misdial constantly on the small keys of last one and a nice loud ring if we are out of the room. All in all, would highly recommend to anyone wanting a good quality cordless phone.
