Product Specifications

The handset Siemens Gigaset SL56 is the elegant way to expand your telephone system at home. Underneath its sublime finish, the Gigaset SL56 brings features that were once reserved for mobile phones right into your home: voice dialing and text messaging (SMS). Assign images and polyphonic ringer melodies to specific entries in your address book. You can speak with your hands free and still enjoy the best sound quality. Or use a comfortable headset to talk and walk. And if you don't like being disturbed at home, just switch on the vibracall function and stay connected in peace and quiet. And when you give each household member their own handset, everyone can make use of their own organizer with alarm functions to manage their life at home. Brilliant.
