Product Specifications

Siemens 242 is a single-line phone that operates on the 2.4 GHz band. Its 2.4 GHz technology ensures exceptional voice clarity owing to a clearer cordless transmission without static or interference from other cordless phones operating at crowded lower frequencies. Digital spread spectrum technology provides optimum security from eavesdropping by "hopping" frequencies more than 100 times every second. Siemens 242 features built-in Caller ID, Call waiting ID, and 30-number Call Log capabilities. A three-line LCD display can show information in English, French, or Spanish. 242 is the only phone you'll need for your active lifestyle. It features 10 programmable speed-dial numbers, a choice of four ring tones, base-to-handset paging, ringer and receiver volume controls, two-way charging positions, out-of-range alert, and more. No more poking yourself in the eye or bending the antenna. Siemens 242 features an internal antenna that protects the phone against accidental damage. This phone comes with a lightweight cordless handset, a base with a built-in charger, a battery pack, and a belt clip.
