Gigaset C430A single review

The Gigaset C430A is a well-equipped cordless phone and answering machine. On the whole, Gigaset usually does pretty well in our home-phone tests, although there have been a few low-scoring duds. How does the C430A rank? Read on to find out.

At last a phone that my husband can hear.

  (Rating Hidden)

Excellent, volume can be turned up so that my husband can hear without his aid. No problems with others hearing our calls. A bit technical so not as easy as the old style BT cordless answer phone, but more like a mobile.

Cheap, but looks and feels it

  (Rating Hidden)

The handsets are plasticky and the layout of the buttons awkward. Also, when you add a number to the directory, the other handsets (I have two) are not automatically updated. Finally, the display on one of the handsets has started to go wrong after a...

GIGASET C430A Trio Cordless Phone with Answering Machine - Triple Handsets

 

None really

Turned off the answering machine facility by itself, without any warning that it was off. Deleting messages is a long and inefficient and time wasting business. Ihave not been able to find a way to reduce the number of rings before the answer machine...

GIGASET C430A Duo Cordless Phone with Answering Machine - Twin Handsets

 

Easy to set up. Good range of ringtones and some are loud enough to here outside of the house. Voice is very clear and on max setting loud enough for all but the poorest hearing. Very pleased with purchase and would recommend.

Docking seems a bit flimsy. Time will tell if its robust enough for prolonged use.

GIGASET C430A Duo Cordless Phone with Answering Machine - Twin Handsets

 

clear good value

calls were diverted to voicemail when we were out with no instructions as to how to record them on the answerphone or how to access them on voicemail eventually found that number of rings determined this. ring tones all a bit samey
