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, Twin DECT 3.5 5 8 8
Not the best Cordless Phone I have Brought I brought these phone on reading the majority of the reviews on here. For the first 12 months they all worked well & then one handset just stopped working. I replaced the batteries, tried resetting etc but to no avail. I am not very impressed with these phones at all & setting up can be complex also. I would not recommend these phones, not buy them as they may look good but they do not last or function that well after a few months. 07 September 2014
Easy to Use Large buttons, easy to set up and some of the extra features such as the locate handset are extremely useful. 05 August 2014
Very Poor Sound Quality Unfortunately my experience has been very frustrating due to the very poor sound quality. The sound is very thin, metallic & cheap sounding, something akin to someone standing in a metal dustbin. The other issue is that when answering the phones they take a few seconds before anything happens. This usually means you then press the answer button again, which then places the call in hands free mode. When the phone is answered the caller can hear the ringtone at the other end & has to wait several seconds before someone actually says hello. Have now lived with this phones for a number of months as I really wanted to like them, as they are well built & stylish with very good features. Unfortunately due to the poor sound quality I have finally decided to give up and will now be looking at a non Siemens Gigaset phone replacement 02 July 2014

Does everything it says on the tin. Just what I need without being too complex and charming sound on replacing in cradle! 22 April 2014
Easy to use cordless phone Very happy with this so far although not using the Answer facility yet. The screen is very clear so you know who is calling. We have continued to use the BT service but must change as there is no indication on the phone of such saved messages. 25 March 2014
