Siemens Gigaset C470IP


A great dual-mode handset

Dual-mode; support for six SIP carriers; supports SMS, IM and e-mail; easy to use Web interface; decent call quality

Handset LCD resolution isn’t good enough for IM and e-mail; ugly base station

This is a great option for those on the lookout for a dual-mode VoIP solution (with some mobile-like functionality on the side). Text-intensive functions, like e-mail and instant messaging, don’t look the best on the screen’s low resolution, but the...

A Bargain


While I may not have purchased this sawhorse at list price, it is certainly a bargain when on sale with FREE shipping which beats the price at another big name department store.

A very solid VoIP Phone and that is easy to setup. I would highly recommend this unit as it has a lot of flexability for even the more demanding user. I work in IT and have put this phone though its paces and have to say it hasn't let me down. Call...

I have being using this for over a year now and don't have any complaints at all. I happen to have three different VoIP accounts and the great thing about this unit is that it allows up to 6 to be configured into the base. To switch between the...

None so far. If I wanted to be really picky, the shape of the handset is roundish so hard to balance on the shoulder if using both hands.
