1.0 out of 5 stars
Failed to work properly and possibly previously returned goods, 5 Feb. 2013
Item was promptly delivered and initially seemed a new unit. However, examination of the individual phones disclosed minor scuff marks on the displays of each unit. The build quality was certainly not up to the previous Siemens Gigaset standard. More worryingly, the instructions stated to remove the protective film from the display screens - there wasn't any. Working through the instructions and checking out the various functions also identified a problem with the answering machine. Even though the phone was registered and the mode activated to both answer and record, the machine would not record any messages and the handset immediately produced a range of very load noises even after the call had closed that could not be stopped without manual intervention. I suspect the unit was a repackaged faulty unit. Item return for a full refund.
