    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.
  • Jennifer Goodier Feb 09, 2015 01:37:
    I live in France and have a gigaset C450 phone, after recieving a telephone call this morning, I noticed the figure six on the phone after cancelling the call. This is on the second handset and is blocking calls coming through, the telephone light on my livebox is continuall​y flashing. I have tried restoring the handset factory settings and also taking the batteries out, I have also unplug the telephone from the phone socket and the livebox, but the number is still showing. I hope you can help with this problem.

    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.
