    I have a gigaset A580 phone, after between 15 minutes and 25 minutes on a call the phone cuts out, could this mean the batteries need changing.

    I have Siemens Gigaset A58H phones. Recently the street cables went down and phones went off. After being restored we lost our recorded message and the message now is a factory one and not suitable. I have read your manual and can not work out how to record my own message. Can you help please. Thank you.
