All Gigaset Discounts, Offers and Sale - December 2018
welcome to the club (annoyed)
my landline sits there gathering dust and i have the pleasure of paying line rental for that !
Does anyone even bother with landlines at home anymore?
Good phones very reliable had the Siemens ones which is the former brand used before, using gigaset for the last 8 years good sound quality
Is anybody still using these ? Apart from my mum just retired I don't know anyone ? Ohh.. Yeah my local take away got one .. hot then.
iDECT Edge Plus with Call Block - showing as £69.99
Thanks, bought the one base unit with answering machine, £21.50 after buying a voucher through work scheme. Didn't want anything fancy, the Panasonic's look good but around £5 more, it will probably only get used a couple of times a week.

Anyone recommend a twin handset with a shared phonebook? I.e regardless of which handset you update the phonebook on, both handsets see the same phonebook? Also would like speed dialling too!
Ordered dual ones
Highly recommend, they are abit light but great value for money
Best cordless house phone i have ever bought...superb!
You can earn the extra nectar points on this. These any good?
Would of thourt that be obvious but ok cool
looks like it yes.
Showing as £89.99 on website, has this finished?
I have the S850A/H they are fantastic as I'm sure the ones the op posted are. Very good sound quality even on loud speaker, good signal, I can walk quite a long way from the base, good battery life, easy to use, caller ID support good volume. Mine also support Bluetooth, VOIP etc and get notifications of missed calls and answer phone messages to my mobile (although my landline rings my mobile also). I could continue but just take my word for it. Gigaset are great phones. Heat from me as a bargain at this price! P.s. I live in the middle of nowhere so not bothered about the supposed security issues. Anyone hacking my phone would just get bored to death from junk voicemails!
So if someone got passed security what could they actually do... I thought the device only allows VoIP calls externally, not remote access to the admin side of the system, unless you enable that, so unless someone was on my local network they can't do much, or can they?
These look very similar to my set of Siemens Gigaset C595 which I bought in 2010 to replace a Panasonic set still under warranty. Excellent voice quality. Design seems rather sturdy, dropped quite a few times on laminate flooring but not a chip yet, on phone or floor. Last year had to buy new rechargeable batteries for both handsets. Grab a set while you can.
I'll slip that over the handset
Op should really mention this
These are refurbished incase people didn’t realise as it’s not clearly written.
Has it got Knob Blocker?
Thank you so much for information.
Thanks buddy for your link..I ended up getting the triple for £44.99. Many thanks for your help.
try John Lewis - seems to be the same one for £35 Gigaset C620A Digital Telephone and Answer Machine, Twin DECT Product code: 83140364
You can get the BT 8610 for £39.99, which has the same handset but a slightly different physical design of the base. Now the Gigaset are back up to £80 it makes them a bargain.
Same here, blocks all foreign numbers and with held numbers (BT) Large colour 1.8" TFT They always say large when it is not.
I just want someone to call me, even if it's an iPhone deal from India...
You need an "Add nuisance calls" feature. (y)
Taken from the ops description at top of page, last bullet point!!! "Brilliant HSP sound quality, even when talking hands-free" (y)
Do these have speaker phone on these?
sadly I only have around two calls a year to the landline, so wouldn't really get a chance to use 3 phones
Not in stock
Thank you, I've bookmarked that site, cheers.
http://checkstocknow.co.uk/ is better than Argos website for searching stock.
Nice fine thank you, :D just ordered to collect :) :D
Is available in quite a few places in Scotland
Did you end up doing anything to the phone? I'd be interested in a custom ROM to get an android update.
Hi, has anyone who got this rooted and installed any changes? I know there's a thread on xda but I've been reluctant to try so far.
I'm not too impressed with the camera tbh, my p8lite seems to be better (less noise better focus), up close its good which makes me wonder if it's geared towards selfies etc :(.
I read somewhere that if you hold the top right part of the phone to your ear, then the sound is louder.
haha, ive had the phone 2 two weeks, and only just noticed that mine 'virbates' too
Has anyone installed a custom ROM on theirs to get an android update? Still using my gigaset and happy with everything, it was definitely a bargain.
Anyone found a camera app that improves pictures over the stock one?
went with this.. its decent.. have never used a launcher before as i was content with just creating mini folders on my home screen before and using the apps drawer https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/smart-launcher-pro-3-10p-google-play-store-2562019 The phone is alright.. its just a temp phone for me since my LG G4 got stuck in a boot loop.. waiting to see what the next round of new phone releases in March time brings
How are you getting on with the phone? Did you install a different launcher?
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
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. :-)
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.
Thanks Op. Bought one today..... to gift my sister.
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.
Any examples of these attempts? For interest's sake
How times have changed. £150 for one handset 18 years ago! I still have BT Siemens!
Thanks - ordered. The reviews look pretty good and sound quality was more important than the call blocking capability to me. In fact, the call blocking looks pretty useless.
Just bought - Heat added :)
Can anyone tell me if these work abroad. Ie Germany?
I wonder if these play nice with the N300IP base station.
I picked up my parents a trio boxset of gigaset phones and have to say they are good. Can't remember the model number off the top of my head but they have colour screens and you can also send text messages from the handset too. More features than they will ever need but they were on offer in sainsburys and from memory it was about £40 for the trio pack
Anyone know what idect are like? My Tesco has a trio pack claiming to be down from £110 to £25
If you want call blocking the bt ones are better as they have a built in truecall device, but these are super cheap and Siemens are very good quality
Bought.....thanks very much
I assume these are in competition with the BT 8500 call block models, available marginally cheaper as a duo at £48 with inclusive 2 year warranty via John Lewis. I have not had one unwanted call since starting to use the BT 8500.
Currently on offer for around £35 in sainsburys or you can get the triple phone version for £49.99 which I picked up for my parents as they needed a new phone
Wouldn't be without the call blocking features of my router so id say this is hot just for having that
None in Hemel stores
Said it was available online so added it to basket but at final confirmation it got removed from basket as not available, same thing for click and collect. what's wrong with these ***** stores ?
Great phone. You can even set up a contacts list on the main handset and copy it to the others.
Just setting mine up now. The handset has a few annoying quirks - you need to hold down the green Call button for two seconds in order to make a call! The Mute button (on the bottom right of the handset) is a great addition as I use it often when I'm on speakerphone on hold - but it doesn't seem to indicate Mute on/off on the display. (Ah, actually, when in-call it says "Mute" on the display when you press it). Holding down the * key for two seconds also turns off the handset ringer volume.
Mine seems to be taking a while - online it simply says "Shipped - Complete". My store isn't too far away so I popped in, will be there next week, I was told. Kinda wish I'd got it delivered now!
I got a cancellation email too :(
Had mine delivered today and they seem incredible value for money. I bought four pairs and have set them up using two sockets. Set up was pretty straightforward compared with my rubbish BT ones, The answer machine is a bit limited as you can't tell how many messages you've got. Apart from that - delighted. Thanks OP
good deal Runuali, but no one else will find these Tesco deals..
great price if anyone else can get any
Sorry it's the c430 typo error it has the answer machine yes
Just wondering if this is actually the C430 with answering machine as can't find C340 as a model. If it is definitely hot 8)
That's Beaumont Leys in Leicester
Too much trash
I hate Orpington
Are the speaker phones loud on these?
Very very good phones
can't find it
Thanks for your help much appreciated :)
Duel set huh. Any pistols provided?
can i have the barcode please? :)
Cheers do pm me
