    Touchscreen features, a convenient keypad and customizable settings make this phone with an integrated answer machine a high-performance companion.

    For a cordless phone with smart, state-of-the-art features and an integrated answer 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 messages.1 And you can rest assured that your phone maintains the highest environmental and radiation-free standards thanks to Eco Mode Plus.2


    Managing calls
    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 number.1

    Customisation of features
    With the Gigaset S820A, you can adjust settings precisely to your requirements. QuickSync and Bluetooth® technology allow you to synchronise information between the phone and, for instance, your Outlook files. Assign individual ringtones and picture IDs to your contacts by easily downloading sounds and pictures. With up to 500 vCard entries, you can maintain an extensive contact list – each entry provides space for up to 4 numbers.

    Organization of important information
    Pick up conversations where they left off by consulting the Gigaset S820A’s lists of recent outgoing, incoming and missed numbers. They are dialled with just one touch on the display. Stay organised by taking advantage of the phone’s built-in calendar, date reminder and alarm clock with a snooze button. The birthday reminder allows you to program contacts’ birthdays so you never forget to congratulate friends and family on their special days.

    Talking and listening with ease
    Thanks to the Gigaset S820A’s long talk time of up to 20 hours and its long standby time of up to 250 hours, you can continue conversations for as long as – and whenever – you like. You enjoy the brilliant quality of High Sound PerformanceTM with every call. The handset’s side key allows you to adjust the volume while you talk. 

    Answering of incoming calls
    The integrated answer machine of the Gigaset S820A records up to 55 minutes of messages, so you never have to worry about missing an important call while you are unavailable. You can comfortably operate the answer machine via the handset, and played-back messages reach you in brilliant sound quality.

    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%simply by selecting the ECO Mode. Furthermore, radiation-free5 ECO Mode Plus turns off the transmitting power when the phone is in standby.
