reserve and collect.

The A455A is a great value phone with a range of desirable features. The extra-large phonebook has space for up to 100 entries. Its functional design means that it looks great in any home and with the benefit of nuisance call blocking and anonymous call silencing for unknown numbers you can rest assured that you can relax knowing you wont be disturbed at inconvenient times.

Yes We Have The Triple Set With Answering Had It About 2 Years . Best Phone Ever For Us
Edited by: "Boz" 1st Jul 2016
these are amazing phones, had them for 2 or so years now, the clarity is excellent & the call blocking is brilliant - can't recommend these phones highly enough & what a bargain price, ordered another set as a reserve!
Hey OP,

Great spot, bought one for parents, have some heat and cheers
Thanks purchased
Gigaset phones are brilliant in my experience. I bought our (older) set around 7 years ago and they have been flawless. Great call quality, fantastic battery life and worked as a baby monitor too.
Made in Germany as well. Ours seems good so far
Removable batteries

I don't but they look like they have desirable features.
Thanks! Needed new home phones due to lack of answering machine and call blocking on current ones. Heat added
I'm sure I read somewhere that this model of phone only allows blocking of 15 numbers. That's handy if you're being stalked by your local rugby team, but not much use against the countless thousands of numbers used by general spam callers.
Good price for a pair of decent phones though, so migh pick up a pair to replace our old Panasonics.

Heat added.
Thanks OP, plenty of stock in stores around Harrow. Pleasant surprise for a change.

Reserved one, have some heat.
Thanks OP. Reserved a pair. Needed new ones so great timing.
Missed some recent Tesco deals so thanks :-)

​i have it good one no problems past 2 years
Bought a set last night, it said reduced from £89.99 so seems like a good bargain - thanks!
Thanks, ordered a set. Our BT ones are making a horrible crackling noise and tbe nuisance call blocker seems ideal
Can anyone tell me what the speaker phone quality is like?
Incidentally for those that don't need two, the single handset with base station is £14.99.

Seems to be some false advertising going on here.. Which? doesn't list this phone as a Best Buy, and I've been through all the Gigaset phones, all the June 2014 articles and used search and can find no reference to this phone at all on Which?..

Other Gigaset cordless phones reviewed by Which? vary from Best Buy to Don't Buy.. Speakerphone quality on several of their phones are rated poor so not for me..

I'd ignore the RRP and not get over excited.. it's a good price but it's just a basic monochrome screen budget phone..
Plenty of stock in Tyne and Wear - ordered a twin pack.:D
Is it DECT?
They are great for 1 reason, they have eco function, that disable all radiation when phone is not in use.

I have two sets, one is used by my parents, and both of them have -> worst sound quality than panasonic.

Speaker works well, but mic change voice slightly, so sometimes people do not recognize me
Thanks op, bargain, ordered.

Is it DECT?



It seems this is not DECT. If you need a DECT phone, it's worth checking out Tesco, as they have a Panasonic triple pack for £18.50 in stores with stock. Link.
Reserved and collected on Friday, but will return tomorrow.

PROS: Big clear display, reasonable loud speaker phone, responsive buttons.

CONS: Overly-complicated interface (I'm computer literate), horrible ring tones (this is subjective), nuisance call facility is a joke (only 15 numbers), and most important for me it doesn't work with other standard DECT phones (I suspect Siemens proprietor firmware).

It is a good price if you only want a twin set without nuisance call-blocking.
Thanks Op. Bought one today..... to gift my sister.
Got mine home and it had been repackaged. batteries lose in the box and it was not brand new, going back never told at the till. Naughty Naughty Argos.
I've bought a few of these (paid, & 7 day reservation window, etc), I've NOT collected them yet, but ...

Looking at the reviews on here again, is it worth it now for me to collect them? (only to perhaps end up maybe returning them back, etc?). :-(

Or ..... thanx guys. :-)

They sound perfectly useable but nothing special. A bit fiddly, mediocre speakerphone, black and white, no backlight I think but probably reliable. Gigaset is Siemens so decent make. Whether that's good for you or not is down to you really
