Summary: In principle it is fine, BUT I have yet to manage to synchronise contacts with my iMac as it refuses to accept country & local codes properly. Also it came with instructions only in German & only with a European mains plug. Fortunately, I had a spare adaptor, but Amazon should not sell it like this in the UK or should make clear that this is how it is supplied. Not one of Amazon's finest efforts!
Summary: complete rubbish, not a smart phone, a very stupid phone. Keeps disconnecting itself, so neither receiving calls or messages. Have to take the back off, take out the battery, re insert it. Hands free ok but if you have it to your ear so sensitive disconnects you from your call etc. trash trash, would send it back. distance from base is only 12 metres and most of the time it is crackly and distorted and the charge lasts no time at all.
Summary: Good idea as a digital phone - the keypad is awful as you have to press and press to make a call. it is not worth the expensive cost either. It looks good, but the keypad needs to be touch sensitive and easier to use.
Summary: It is great in many respects, but the software is not fully tested. For example, one can reasonably expect it to work like a mobile phone but, from the initial menu, some entries take you to a dead end and not to another menu that helps a new user to quickly sort him or herself out.
Great design and quality, lacks Mac OS compatibility
17 June 2014
Summary: I’ve enjoyed the Siemens Gigaset series 78H but have been disappointed with the Quick Sync compatibility with the latest Mac OS (Mountain Lion and Mavericks) rendering the USB sync capability so critical to address book management. Tech support reports that Siemens’ bluetooth is also not compatible with Mac so both avenues of connectivity are off-line. No word from Siemens as to when they will get the sync issue sorted out.
Summary: I chose this SL910A instead of the newer SL930A mainly because it has a simpler interface. The newer phone has an Android ice-cream operating system, and as I also have a mobile, I don't need my office phone to do be able to do all the fancy stuff my mobile can. Also the newer SL930A is at least £180! I have replaced my existing office phones with this. It is smaller, neater and much easier to use than all my old desk phones.
