And to make things even easier, the call list logs the phone numbers of the 25 most recent incoming or missed calls and the 10 most recent outgoing calls.

Built to serve: practical information you need throughout the day

The analog phone Gigaset A280 is a perfectly reliable device for all the basic information. Its caller ID function immediately tells you who’s calling when the phone rings. The Gigaset A280 also indicates the date and call duration and features a convenient alarm function.

Green light for the environment: radiation-free calls with ECO DECT

Like all Gigaset cordless telephones, the Gigaset A280 is equipped with the environmentally friendly ECO DECT technology. This means that the telephones are radiation-free in standby mode, even if you have several handsets, as long as the base station and all registered handsets also support ECO DECT. During a phone call, the transmitting power is automatically adjusted to the distance between the base station and the handset. The shorter the distance to the base station, the lower the radiation. For the maximum DECT range, the ECO DECT mode can be deactivated at any time.
