Touchscreen features, a convenient keypad and customizable settings make this phone with an integrated answering machine a high-performance companion.
For a cordless phone with smart, state-of-the-art features and an integrated answering machine, discover the Gigaset S280A. It records up to 55 minutes of messages. Its large, 2.4” touchscreen is easy to read and handle, keeping all important functions at your fingertips. The touchscreen is supplemented by a keypad for simple dialling. Convenient tools include silencing of calls, blocking of anonymous numbers, and forwarding of text messages1. And you can rest assured that your phone maintains the highest environmental and radiation-free standards thanks to Eco Mode Plus2.
Configure the idle screen with up to six of your favourite functions to keep them ready for use – and selectable with just one tap on the touchscreen. For instance, if you don’t want to be disturbed at certain times of day, simply program the time-based call silencing function. You can also silence unknown numbers or block specific numbers you don’t want to hear from. Want to pick up calls and messages while you are away from home? No problem – simply forward incoming calls and texts to your mobile or another contact number1.

Organization of important information

ECO DECT: Pure energy savings and reduced radiation2
The energy-saving power supply of the Gigaset S820A consumes less electricity3, so it’s kinder to the environment, and kinder to your wallet. Like all Gigaset cordless phones, it variably reduces the transmitting power from the handset to base station depending on their distance apart. You can also reduce the transmitting power of the Gigaset S820A’s base station by 80%4 simply by selecting the ECO Mode. Furthermore, radiation-free5 ECO Mode Plus turns off the transmitting power when the phone is in standby.
