Nice product for its price

Been using it for 2-3 days now. Can say am satisfied with it so far.

The good:
1. Caller ID works with BSNL. Wasn't with my previous panasonic. Heard trouble with caller ID with panasonic handsets.
2. Loud ringer sound.
3. Handsfree with speakerphone on the handset!
4. Can store 80 contacts.
5. Holds messages about missed calls.
6. Battery life is pretty long!
7. No issues of interference with wireless even though they seem to use 2.4 Ghz.
8. Voice quality is nice and clear, as good as the Panasonic I had before which was really excellent.

The bad:
1. Ringtones are pretty lame.
2. Handset...

The bad:
1. Ringtones are pretty lame.
2. Handset looks a bit flimsy. Haven't dropped it yet, but doesn't look like it can take too much rough use. Panasonic was sturdier that way.
3. Once you store the contacts, editing them is not that easy because of the menu structure. So store them once and use them often.

Overall, good value for money and you get all the features advertised. I would recommend it right now based on the few days' usage.

GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY

Gigaset A490 is sturdy & user-friendly avilable for lowest price at Flipkart.Best suited for home use.

Pros
1) small & handy design
2) crystal clear voice clarity
3) speaker phone with great clarity & caller id
4) phones operating range

only letdown on this product is it's ringtones are not audible & there aren't any nice ringtones in this phone.......otherwise it's a great a product.

Best Brand to Use for Cordless

Gigaset being an international player has launched this very good model at unbelievable price in India.

This model i had seen during my visit to Europe and have bought the ame after its launch in India.

It is an amazing phone to use and i completely disagree with the first negative review.

Highy Recommended ! Phone with International Quality at Affordable Prices!

Good phone-has all one needs

Two month now using this phone. No issues at all, works well, good sound, practically no interference even though it is placed next to the WiFi router.

The battery holds very good charge, can go without charging for many days, user menu is simple and intuitive and sound quality is great. Good value for money considering that it works on digital signal and not on analog which makes is safe from most of the interfering signals. Build quality is quite good, plastic feels strong and of good quality.

Overall very good value for money.

Cordless winner

Having used the Gigaset A490 for two weeks, I have only admiration for this light yet efficient device. Being fed up with our old world Panasonic cordless which was bulky, had a chubby dialpad and Panasonic specific battery(which had to be replaced time and again by "original" batteries from the grey market) I decided to opt for the Siemens tech-backed Gigaset. And I was surprised of its efficiency on so many counts!!

The thumbs up points are -
- Crisp voice quality . No fading/voice drop even if you are on the move within the given range of around 10m from base.
- Low cost

Having used the Gigaset A490 for two weeks, I have only admiration for this light yet efficient device. Being fed up with our old world Panasonic cordless which was bulky, had a chubby dialpad and Panasonic specific battery(which had to be replaced time and again by "original" batteries from the grey market) I decided to opt for the Siemens tech-backed Gigaset. And I was surprised of its efficiency on so many counts!!

The thumbs up points are -
- Crisp voice quality . No fading/voice drop even if you are on the move within the given range of around 10m from base.
- Low cost
- Ultra light weight handset , almost mobile phone like
- Expansion to upto 4 phones on the base set (intercom). Perhaps better to setup a couple of them if you stay in a duplex/multi-storeyed house.
- Handset works on rechargeable AAA standard batteries. No more proprietary batteries.
- Found no interferance when used in the same area with Wifi router, 3G modem and standard GSM mobile
- Ringtones, Contact Book, Caller-ID and Orange display screen are all plus features and will definitely enhance user experience

The cons (nitpicking actually):
-To make the device lighter, the body uses a plastic like material which does not feel very resistant to hard falls
-Base station could be designed to be more stable(bottom-heavy) on the desk
- A dialing facility on base station will be useful in case of usage during power outage. As is, the phone will not work without the power supply to base station (or always have a backup corded phone )

Handset standby time is around 10 hours . Really have not had long conversations to comment on the "talktime" battery life.
Also unknown is how many months will the AAA batteries last on the handset.

A definite positive shout if you are looking out for a cordless phone with basic voice features and for a very reasonable price.
