Gigaset C430A Digital Cordless Telephone and Answer Machine, Twin DECT

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, call blocking, 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.

  • Call blocking will ensure that anonymous calls do not cause nuisance in your household, so you can receive just the calls you need.
  • 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

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Okay But... Recently purchased the triple set and while it is an attractive phone it did not appear to be of a better quality build than the BT phone which I have had for a few years and which only lately developed a fault. It did perform differently but not better. The one feature which is impressive is the clear quality of the sound and at both ends of the call. It has a number of features most of which are unnecessary. At this early stage of use there does not appear to be any faults and I would recommend it to others. 22 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Phone line Easy to use although not yet familiar with all the functions! Clear view of incoming calls- very useful. Better control could upgrade to excellent. 10 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great value for money I needed to replace my existing trio of phones. Didn't know anything about Gigaset but John Lewis staff informed me they were a good make. I am delighted with these phones and would recommend them to anyone. 03 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Phone A good phone, relatively easy to use, but terrible ring tones....not a single one that sounds anything like a phone! 29 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good purchase We have been using the telephones and answer machine for the last three weeks following a house move, and are pleased with their performance. Easy to install and use. 08 July 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointing I bought a set of 3 of these phones based on the rave reviews that had been given. I was sadly disappointed as they were not as great as I expected. Setting up was pretty straightforward. It was when returned home from a few days away that my problems started. I had 3 answer phone messages but when I played them back all I received was a dialling tone. I had the phones checked by JL and they said all was working well BUT they still wouldn't record may messages at home. They have been returned and I have a full refund ( despite having thrown the box away ) Full marks for JL customer service... 25 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best dect phones ever. I have had many dect phones over the years but this Gigaser C430A is the absolute best. Crystal clear conversations, even on loudspeaker. Great operating range. I would definitely reccomend this. Looks good too. 28 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Delighted Delighted with these phones. Easy set up and easy to use. The whole family have had no problms at all. A must have purchase. 29 April 2014
