Product information

The Gigaset C620A has been designed to simplify your family's life. It features a large 1.8" graphical display that gives you user-friendly direct access to functions, making it a practical solution to your day-to-day calling requirements.

Key Features

  • Store up to 55 minutes of messages on the high capacity answer machine. The handset and base both feature 'new message' lights and the time and date of the recording is played back every time you listen to your messages. A skip-back function will also replay the last few moments of a message, so you can finish writing down important details.

  • Time-controlled call silencing allows you to set your phone to silent at specified times so it won't wake you when you sleep or disturb some much needed peace and quiet. Instead, calls will show just on the handset, so you can still be aware of them if you need to be.

  • Anonymous call protection works in conjunction with the caller ID service from your provider to let you mute or withhold calls from certain numbers, or even blacklist up to 15 numbers, so you can avoid calls from undesirables.

  • A 'babyphone' function will turn your phone into a baby monitor, with settings instructing it to make internal or even external call alerts when your baby wakes up. You can alter the sensitivity of the alert and it even features a talkback function that can be useful for talking to older children from another room.

  • The C620A employs High Sound Performance (HSP) to deliver clear, loud voices without static or fuzz, even when you're using the handsfree speaker.

Q & As


Gigaset C620A Digital Telephone and Answer Machine, Twin DECT 4.4 5 21 21
Brilliant,smart piece of well equipped and advanced tech. By far the most technologically advanced piece of German tech, equipped with just about everything you would require in a cordless system.Fantastic quality, very user friendly beautifully designed right down to the colour LCD screen. 09 April 2014
Good all rounder This has replaced our old Siemens phone set. It is just as good except that accessing the contacts is not as convenient. Very comfortable to hold when you have those long family chats! 05 March 2014
Cordless Telephone - Duo We bought these to replace our old BT cordless phone which after 14 years had finally died. We spent a long time researching and comparing different makes and finally settled on the Gigaset C620A and what a great choice too! The price was a very good deal considering what you get for your money. They were very easy to set up. The buttons are clear and precise (unlike our old one). There are lots of features other makes do not offer and we like how you can set different ring tones to differentiate between friends/family etc.. We also really like the analogue clock on the screen saver! Have no doubt these phones will last for many years . Would definitely recommend... 04 March 2014
Delighted Had intended buying Panasonic but put off by some of the reviews, particularly regarding volume. Reviews were good for this item so went for it and am very pleased. The only disadvantage I've found is that the telephone contacts have to be input separately on each handset (understand some phones transfer automatically. Small problem so very pleased with purchase. 04 March 2014
phones Tidy phone easy to set up . Ring tones not my to my taste but distinctive . Clear sound both ways . Answer phone and directory easy to set up as well. 04 March 2014
Rather disappointed Chosen because of the good reviews particularly from reviewers in the 65 & over age group. I would say that the design is rather flashy and not well thought out as the number buttons are small, not very clear or easy to use. Also although it boasts a larger display screen - (in fact this upper part takes up 2/3rds of the phone), because it is so narrow all the display lettering is smaller than I have been used to and therefore not so easy to read. The phone has many gizmos such as baby alarm, putting callers on hold and playing music to them (which has happened accidentally a couple of times) etc., etc., The one thing that is a real plus feature is being able, very simply, to transfer numbers from unwanted calls onto a blacklist which then can be set give cold callers a permanently busy tone!! 21 February 2014
Operational Issues with the Gigaset C620A The product has clear sound and is comfortable to hold. The distance use is good. Our issue is with one button getting dial tone before inputing numbers. It may be old fashioned but we are used to checking the dial tone to confirm the line is active. Believe it on not here in the our rural area telephone outages still happen. Pushing the green button starts a redial from a previous call . I would not recommend this product. 20 February 2014
Best of the bunch These were a replacement for a five-year-old set of cordless Panasonic phones which developed a fault. I have had these phones for just over a month so I cannot comment on the reliability of these yet. I hope they will last longer than five years - but that is probably too much to ask for these days! The two year guarantee should cover any obvious build faults at least. When I was searching for new phones I was amazed at how little progress there has been in the cordless phone market. Most people are used to mobile phones and these are a world away from being smart. I know there are more advanced options out there but they are costly and still using old technology. I don't particularly want a phone with a high quality touchscreen or have a camera or play films (this is a landline phone which won't travel further than the back garden) but why do the menus and settings need to be so clunky? Thank heavens the manual is excellent and provides all the information needed to get set-up. If I am honest though, I would say that my old phones were slightly more intuitive to simply pick-up-and-use. Last gripe (I promise - this is a 5 star review after all!). The ringtones are awful. I'm sure Gigaset are not the only perpetrators of this aural crime but I wish they could provide a couple of old fashioned telephone ring style sounds to humour us. So why the five stars? I am comparing them to my cordless phone experience and what I have seen on the market at the moment. These phones are an acceptable price for what seems to be a very robust phone. The build quality seems very high, they are comfortable to hold and have pressed against your ear for the duration of a call and the sound quality is excellent. The volume can be increased nice and loud if necessary and the hands-free option is loud and clear. The AA batteries give an excellent talk/standby time and the display is easy to read. Overall I am very pleased with my new phones. 19 February 2014
