Family Approved

Children and adults alike love the useful functions on the Gigaset C610A. The direct call function is great for youngsters or the visually impaired; for your piece of mind, just designate a number that can be dialled with one click of a button. Keep suppressed numbers and sales calls from bothering family life by using anonymous call silencing.

Small babies also benefit from the C610; the integrated baby phone calls any number you specify (internal or external) as soon as the sound reaches a certain level in the baby’s room. You can talk to your child by activating the selectable talk-back function, which amplifies your voice into the room.

And at the end of the day when everyone’s home and ready for a restful night, take advantage of the day/night switch that silences the handset’s ringer while you sleep.

Easy to Use

Never give the hours you spend on the phone a second thought with the Gigaset C610A. Its long talk time of 12 hours and standby time of 185 hours gives you ample time to catch up with friends and family. The Gigaset C610A is also very simple to handle and use, thanks to its large TFT colour display and jumbo font for added readability. If you need to send messages, the C610A also allows you to send texts up to 612 characters.

Fit to Your Family

Each family communicates in its own way – and the Gigaset C610A is made to adjust to your family’s individual needs. For instance, you can expand this phone by up to 6 additional handsets (or L410 and 5 additional handsets), placing them throughout your household. To make specific contacts identifiable, assign different ringtones to up to 6 separate VIP groups. With choice like this, everybody’s happy.

Gigaset L410

Another great tip for busy households: increase your flexibility immensely by purchasing the new Gigaset L410 speakerphone clip to go with your Gigaset phone – and take the boredom out of your daily chores. Fully compatible with all GAP phones, clip it to your clothes and multi-task your conversations.

ECO DECT: Pure Energy Savings and Radiation-free

The energy-saving power supply of the Gigaset C610A consumes less electricity, so it’s kinder to the environment, and kinder to your wallet. Like all Gigaset cordless phones, it variably reduces the transmitting power from the handset to base station depending on their distance apart. You can also reduce the transmitting power of the Gigaset C610A’s base station by 80% simply by selecting the ECO Mode. Furthermore, radiation-free ECO Mode Plus turns off the transmitting power when the phone is in standby.

For a highly convenient answering machine and a phone equipped for busy family life, the Gigaset C610A is your family-focused choice.

Style Name: Twin Verified Purchase
I have long been a fan of Siemens Gigaset Phones, having bought many handsets of differing models for our busy office. I therefore bought, with confidence, this model (twin handsets) for use at home. It has many good features - the display is clear and easy to see, the buttons are relatively easy to use, even for my clumsy, increasingly-arthritic fingers and I like that it records the time of outgoing calls as well as incoming ones.
However, I find it very difficult to hear what callers are saying: tones seem muffled, indistinct and rather "tinny". I also find the comparatively short life of the battery irritating: despite having gone through the lengthy set-up rigmarole of charging for ten hours, leaving to totally discharge and then re-charging, I find that one handset will not last a day of even light use without being replaced in the charger.
Another small gripe is that, although the appearance is smart, the casing feels uncharacteristically cheap for a Gigaset phone and doesn't give the impression of being built to last very long.
On balance, if I could go back and start again - I would not buy this phone.

Was looking forward to this phone as there was a lot of hype. Upon opening the box, was a little disappointed with the plastic, cheap lightweight feel of the unit. I spent about an hour setting up the different options etc, there are a lot of options to review.

Pros:
Call quality.
It comes ready to use out of the box.
Good answerphone system.
Keypad lock
Can switch of 'ringer' between set times.

Cons:
Unit feels too lightweight, cheap plastic. (which is one of the dilema's when buying something online)
The alarm clock is either on or off, I would have liked a weekday option.
More sensitivity options with the monitoring.
Cannot add ringtones.
Call log does not give call duration.
Cannot sort address book by christian name.

I guess I cannot complain too much as I bought it due to the extra options, which work. If I had been in a shop and had handled the device and scrolled through the menu etc, I might have looked at some others as well, maybe even purchased a different model, albeit probably at more expense.

Overall I think this is good value for money if you buy it for the extra options - Monitor function, keypad lock and having the ability to switch off the ringer between set times.

As I spend endless hours on conference calls working from home, I wanted a phone with a good speaker-phone and figured this one, which features a "baby-monitor" capability, would fit the bill - and it certainly does. Sound quality is very good and usability is pretty intuitive. I didnt need to use the manual much as setup and features are all pretty easy to use.

We ordered this item since it was listed as a new version of a previous Which? Best Buy. The most obvious change was a "piano black" casing, which looked very smart. However, the "Gigaset" logo, on the front of the handset most frequently used, has already all but worn off (less than two months use). This is not the only disappointment. The battery life indicator shows noticeable discharge when it has been off the charger even for the relatively short time of an hour or so. The choice of ring tone is another let-down. Granted, there are a good number from which to choose, but I suggest that most people would disregard most of them, being either too similar to each other or too unattractive. We eventually chose the one that sounds like a US landline 'phone, but it is inaudible from the next room when the TV is on and we don't have the TV at high volumes. We have set the ringtone at the highest volume level, but still, we have missed a lot of calls.

There is no audio indication of a message having been left on the answerphone. Admittedly, there is a visual indication, but this means that you have to go looking for it, which is less convenient. Additionally, we did not find the set intuitive to use and the instructions appear to be a direct translation from German, which can be confusing.

We bought this set to replace a BT set whose LCD display was wearing out. I have to say that we prefer the old BT set, but, of course, they are no longer available.

To sum up briefly: Not as good as expected.

Looked at a lot of options before settling on the Siemens Gigaset C610A trio, which seemed to offer all the qualities and features I was looking for.
I am very pleased indeed with the this purchase, most of the features work well, in particular only needing to insert all your contact numbers on one handset and have them automatically transferred to the other two handsets is a real plus; the ability to put all the numbers and email for the same contact into a single entry is also very handy.
My only disappointment is the quality of sound on the answerphone play back which could be clearer.
Overall very satified and would recommend it.

OK, I purchased this set of phones (trio) on top of the previous version. Initially I was impressed with the phone, however after a years use I have the following to report:
1) I swapped the propriety batteries with Sanyo Eneloop one which are the best batteries in their class. However the longevity of these cells are wasted by how the phones flicker after a missed call. The thing is a missed call by a few hours results in a freshly charged battery drained to half that isn't good.

2)As I mentioned I owned (still do) the previous incarnation of Gigaset phones,and the thing is the software is so much user friendly with the previous set. I'm all for technology and such, but please too much technology can be a pain in the arse, the last thing i want to be doing is playing about with the phone in which to find somebody's number. Its bad enough ringing a service provider and following their automated instructions, its another when you have something similar at home.

3) Talk wise the phones are Ok, but I would appreciate a phone I could cup under between my ear and chin a lot easier.

While a nice phone, I prefer the previous incarnation which was simpler to use.
