can I connect these to two that I already have...turning one of the base answer phones into a client or whatnot?

I'm wondering the same thing, sort of, as I want two sets of these and I have an £20 argos voucher, so 4 phones for £30 for me is pretty good. The instructions say that that the base unit's transmission power can be switched off, effectively, so and the base station that is set to "no radiation" will merely charge the handset. I could have misunderstood and be wrong, though.

Is gigaset a good brand for cordless phones?

Gigaset is Siemens - very good quality.

Siemens gigaset are typically great, I have three handsets at home, all around 10 years old (they've had replacement AAA rechargeables). Mine have a Room Monitor function which we use to be alerted via the phone placed in my daughter's room at night whilst we are at the other end of the house (that phone doesn't acknowledge incoming calls).
I don't believe this model has the Room Monitor function though it's likely to last well.

Most bases will allow multiple handsets to be registered(typically losing some functional if a different model base is used), certainly two of the posted sets will allow four handset configurations.

Bought the single handset version - also on offer (http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/9068672.htm) - when it was last on sale for my parents and they love it. Very impressed by the call quality and features.

A220A Triple Pack only £27.99 too, three phones very slighly less featured.

Cool, got the last ones in my local

thanks

I have used Siemens sets for ages and they are brilliant. If you are using two sets and have an extra base station, it's easy to use the extra base station for charging only. It just takes up a bit more room than a standard charger.

Thanks just what I needed, ours has been playing up lately.

edit-went for the £20 quid version only slightly different-2hrs less charge and 10 ring tones

I have a set of these, can definitely recommend. The range and speaker phone are top notch

Brilliant that's just what I'm after, a single handset, thanks

I have the amazon.co.uk/Pan…722

Panasonic Phones.

They are better that these, in many features and respects, but I have to say these phones are still pretty good from checking the specs, nice big display and decent range etc.. so I have voted HOT. (I would still pay the £15 extra for the Panasonic phones though!)

reserved thanx, heat added

Bought two sets yesterday and have 4 phones registered to the one base. I have turned the answer machine and the signal off (I think) on the second base and it is used just as a charger now. All phones charged up and will connect them to the phone line later to see if they work well.

What's better about the Panasonic phones then? I have Gigaset phones and they really are very good. For instance, they actually stop charging the batteries when they're full, making them cooler, saving energy and increasing battery life.

Thanks OP.

Reserved it and they're ordering into store.

is the display backlit on these?

edit: says yes on manufacturers website

Seems they were

* Please note item 9068713 has previously been on sale at 22.49.

Thanks Op. Picked mine up this morning. There are another two sets cheaper if anyone is interested. One is £19.99,the other is £22.49. Same make.

Got one earlier as well. Thoroughly recommend these sets; I have another Siemens phone, top class. Cheers Op, heated

The Panasonic phones are better IMO because of the answer phone message counter, big display, big buttons - conference (speaker phone) LED button on top (just tap it when it rings and it will answer the call in conference mode), and tonnes of features like autopickup answer, call screening, eco mode etc.. These handsets have a lot of similar features, but not all, (like the led call counter) and are more limited.

I like these extras so will pay more for them. But many can live wthout - these phones are still great and a decent brand, and this is a great deal!

Since you don't mention which model of Panasonic phone has these features can I point out Gigaset phones have many of the features you mention. It may sound pedantic though I'd also like to point out Gigaset is not a decent brand, it's a quality/premium brand.

Price now matched at Amazon (_;)

Oh - your right - here they are: amazon.co.uk/Pan…AAY
