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: The Gigaset SL910A is a superb looking wander phone. I purchased it as we have lost the 1471 missed caller identification and I was told that as this phone had a caller recognition it would show me any missed calls, it doesn't. All caller recognition works on the 1471 scheme so if you can't get that then a caller recognition screen won't work anyway. As it is made of metal it is quite heavy compared to a mobile phone.
Summary: Worked absolutely fine for about 4 days then...dead...tried other phones in the socket, they worked fine, the unit wouldn't charge, I was left with a very gorgeous looking brick! Shame because in the short time it did work i was quite impressed.
Summary: Looks great and for most will be a great phone. However, it does lack some of the functionality I expected of this type of phone. Received call info is missing, it is easy to press the wrong button and very difficult to move through menus in a call.
Summary: Bought this to replace the BT cordless phone that had given up the ghost. Read some of the reviews and they seemed favourable to buying the product. Will say that it is a good quality and solidly constructed. However this phone has started to turn itself off when trying to make a call. I am unable to access the menu of the phone and it seems to have a mind of its own. I will be contacting Amazon shortly to see what can be done to rectify this problem.
Product ok on its own but NOT with others; Manufacturer help lousy

Summary: Needed to replace 3 phones. Researched and emailed Gigaset CS (Belgrade?) around a dozen times pre-purchase. Wanted to see and handle the phones but, although recommended retailer , JL canu2019t stock the huge number of variants from Gigaset. SL910 wasnu2019t available as a trio set so bought 1 of these and 2 S820.
Summary: I bought to replace my old Philips set. Good idea to have home phone with touch screen. But this screen is slow. Functions poor. Bluetooth and Internet are useless. You cannot transfer the whole address book . You have to do it one at a time. No where near any basic smartphone. Good features. - brighter time display especially at night. Good look and feel. I will not recommend this as a special homephone for lack of technical features. Sorry.
