I find it impossible to believe this is an impartial review !
16th Feb 2011
I have had a pair of these phones for about 2 weeks now. I am very impressed. I am participating in at least 1 telephone meeting per day and these phones are just brilliant. The mute function is very good, easy to use. I can transfer contacts from my iMac via bluetooth very easily. The sound quality is good.
However, the most impressive thing was the packaging. I am sick of excessive plastic and those that you cant get back into the box for love nor money (as sending back gadgets due to being unfit for purpose is such a common occurrence these days). I am please to report it looked like this dual handset package was put together by human hands. One large cardboard branded box, together with individual cardboard boxes containing the charger, base station and batteries. The handset components were sealed in plastic sleeves. Not one bit of vac sealed clear hard plastic in sight.
Well done Siemens and liGo. Highly recommended for SOHO and home use.

Can the ringer of the handset and base be switched off completely?
Any audible caller id?
10th May 2011
Yes you can switch the ringer offer completely. I haven't checked for audible caller ID but it does show pic of the person calling you etc.

Can you connect via bluetooth to a PC to make calls from within Outlook?

Could you tell me if this phone has a caller display facility ?

I have the SL375, and that has audible caller ID, by defining the caller as a VIP, you get to choose the ring tone. The hard part was finding a suitably morbid tune for my mother-in-law.

Can you buy additional handsets
27th Jun 2011
Yes. The additional handsets are sold as the SL78H

First purchase from LiGo. I ordered a quad set of SL785s via the internet on 3 July 2011 (a Sunday). The phone arrived by courier on Tuesday 5 July! Well pleased. The phones took no setting up. Synced with my address book on MacBook Pro using the downloaded QuickSync software from Seimens website. I used USB, although I understand I could have used Bluetooth should I have wished. Phones have been great - better than anything I've used before, although I hadn't set the bar too high, having used only BT phones previously. One stand/ charger proved to be faulty. Used LiGo's online customer service facility on Tuesday, 9 Aug to which I received a prompt acknowledgement and within 12 hours also received and email advising of dispatch of replacement unit. No fuss, no bother. The replacement (new) unit arrived today, Friday 12 August. Despite the faulty unit, I'm well impressed all round with the phone system and especially by LiGo's service.

Does it have speaker??? thanks

I am really struggling between getting an SL785 and an S795. The reviews for both are excellent. I'm not sure what value the bluetooth of the 785 adds as I don't need to use a bluetooth headset as I happily use a headset with a jack at present, which the 795 has. The 795 is cheaper and more recent. Are there features of bluetooth capability that I am unaware of? Which phone has the best soud quality - this is the most important aspect for me - thanks very much - Joy

Nobody comments on signal strength and the distance from base unit - can anybody enlighten me please. I need a strong phone to work in a 17th century building with the base unit in an upstairs office and the handset being used in a noisy commercial kitchen downstairs.
All comments welcome

Re handset range: I've seen advertised a gigaset repeater unit - perhaps this would help?
11th Nov 2011
I need to replace my home phone and am searching for a cordless phone with a number of handsets with extra long range as I live in a large old house with solid walls that I do not want to wire into. What is the range of this phone and does it need a booster after that?

Any idea how to get the Caller ID working? all I get at the moment is external on the display even a number in my phone book.
31st Dec 2011
external on the display is usually your telecoms provider and not the handset. You need to check if caller ID is included in your line rental package with your provider. Had a similar problem myself and this is what it turned out to be.

I have 4 c470 Siemens gigaset cordless phones. Is it possible to pair this phone to previous gigaset models?
28th Nov 2012
can you transfer recorded messages from the answer phone to your pc or memory stick?
28th Dec 2012
Can I use this telephone system with my Siemen's hearing aids and MiniTek. There don't seem to be any reviews by the hard of hearing customers.
4th Jan 2013
I have an old gigaset which annoyingly does not log incoming calls in call history once received. Can any of the users please tell me if this one shows incoming calls in call history?
