Product information

With a large, customisable colour screen and a classic style, the Gigaset C430A digital cordless telephone and answer machine allows your home phone to reflect your personality without compromising on features. This modern phone provides excellent sound quality, an answering machine, hands-free capability, a large phonebook, long standby/talk times and energy-saving operation.

Key Features:

  • The 1.8-inch colour display can be customised with two colour schemes and a personal screensaver. You can set also set an individual sound profile, making the C430A adapt to your style, and not the other way round.

  • The ergonomic keypad is a pleasure to use, thanks to its high-quality build. The C430A also includes two customisable function buttons that give you direct access to your favourite features.

  • The C430A's address book includes room for up to 200 entries, with the option to tag important numbers as 'VIPs', making the people you contact the most easier to find.

  • The answering machine on the C430A makes it easy to get the message, even when you're out. With a recording time of 30 minutes, callers will be able to let you know what's on their mind. You can set your own greeting, or use a pre-recorded message, while you'll be informed of any pending messages by the display on the base station or by a message signal on the handset.

  • The C430A provides clear sound, whether you're using the handset or speaking to someone with the hands-free speaker.

  • A day/night switch can be used to mute the handset's ringer at night- or just when you don't want to take any calls- so you won't be interrupted when you're enjoying precious moments of silence.

  • Gigaset phones use energy efficient power supplies, helping to save the environment and your wallet. Putting the C430A into ECO Mode decreases the transmitting power of the base station by up to 80%. Furthermore, ECO Mode Plus is radiation-free and switches transmitting power off completely whenever your phone is in idle mode.

Q & As


Gigaset C430A Digital Cordless Telephone and Answer Machine, Single DECT 4.8 5 8 8
Excellent phone. Very pleased with the C430A. It does everything it's supposed to do. The display is beautifully clear (unlike some). The instructions are precise and clear and written in good English. The only thing I was not too happy about was the ringtones, but that is a very individual matter and should not put anyone off. Definitely recommended. 01 April 2014

value for money good telephone value for money I can recommended to the friend thanks 03 December 2013
Perfect We needed to replace an ancient and malfunctioning handset but unfortunately had a limited budget. We ended up choosing the Gigaset C430A because it had the features we needed including a large phone book, decent screen and modern styling. After a couple of weeks we have been impressed with this phone - it was easy to set up, the manual is clear and easy to follow and the handset is light and comfortable for the longer conversations! The only thing we could say against the phone is that a lot of the ringer tones are less than useful unless you are in same room. However, with the John Lewis 2 year guarantee it represents excellent value. 08 November 2013
