Re: Best Cordless Phone on the Market?

Siemens Gigaset are easily the best. Granted not cheap, but then again they are made in Germany with excellent build quality, crystal clear voice quality, allow you to do things like use your own mp3 ringtones, sms to your mobile phone when someone leaves an answering message etc & designed to last you many many years. However just bear in mind that many gigaset DECT models use a separate base station, some like the S795 (which i own) don't. The S810A is an updated version of the S795 and comes highly recommended:

Can't say which is best, but one to avoid is the BT Freelance we foolishly bought as a "Tesco exclusive" (yes, I know, there's one born every minute frown ). It's flimsy, fiddly to use, answering device slow to turn off (one must go through the procedure with two button presses) and in all respects it's inferior to the six-year-old Panasonic which it replaced.

We've had Gigaset C475 for a couple of years now - got it in a John Lewis sale at an excellent price for base/answer machine and three handsets - has always worked perfectly.

I have found that having things like recent caller lists, we rarely use the answer machine though, and the phone flashes if a call went unanswered.

Previous models we had that did have problems at some point were BT and Philips makes.

I looked around for a good DECT phone and decided on the Panasonic KX-TG6592EM Twin Pack Big Button DECT Phone with 40 minute TAM (Telephone Answering Machine) the answering machine I donít use. I use the Free BT answering machine through Orange. This phone is not posh but highly functional with excellent sound quality.
