The clever alternative to the fixed network: a multi-functional tabletop phone for home and business from Vodafone


Düsseldorf, 11. May 2006. If you want the convenience of a traditional phone without the constraints of a fixed network connection, you’ll love Vodafone’s new tabletop model. This tabletop phone without network cable is the ideal solution for families and businesses. It’s perfect for customers who use the low-cost Vodafone At Home tariff. This easy-to-use tabletop phone’s design is similar to a conventional fixed network model, and it combines the advantages of using a traditional phone with standard mobile phone features. Families, couples, small businesses and freelancers who don’t want to be without a shared phone line at home or in the office will love it.

Vodafone’s tabletop phone has all the popular features for home and business calls. It is a compact phone with convenience functions that is intended to be a permanent fixture in the home or on the office desk. Vodafone provides an inexpensive phone connection and a fixed network number. Not only can users make calls at home or in the office in the traditional way, they also get all the benefits of mobile communication. There is no complex installation process. All you have to do is plug the phone into the mains, insert the SIM card and all members of the household or staff can use it right away. Of course, the phone also has numerous popular mobile functions such as phonebook, call register and text messaging. Text messages can be sent to mobile numbers, German fixed network numbers (except special-purpose numbers) and to e-mail addresses. The phone can also receive e-mails in text message format. All these things make the Vodafone tabletop phone the perfect solution for both the family home and for professional business communications.

The GSM-based GDP-02 tabletop phone offers maximum caller convenience. It has a large keypad, an adjustable illuminated display and a built-in speakerphone and microphone for handsfree calls. The phonebook can hold up to 200 numbers and the call register provides an overview of the time, date and numbers of the last ten received and missed calls. The GDP-02 can also store up to 20 text messages. Six speed dialling keys can be programmed for frequently called numbers. There is a choice of ten ringtones for assignment to the phone.

This tabletop phone is obviously the perfect hardware for Vodafone At Home customers with the At Home Talk24 tariff, which enables them to make inexpensive flat rate calls at low monthly cost without a basic fee. Vodafone customers with this tariff only pay 20 euros a month for free calls to the German fixed network and the Vodafone network*. The GDP-02 costs 49.90 euros* and is available now at the Vodafone shops.

* Applies in conjunction with the conclusion of a Vodafone customer contract with a 24-month minimum term, monthly package cost of EUR 20 for unlimited standard domestic calls to the German fixed network and the German Vodafone network (no diverted calls, no conference calls) and further usage-based fees, e.g. EUR 0.25/ min. for standard domestic calls to all German mobile networks. Only applies for calls made at the customer address supplied to Vodafone D2. The offer is valid for customers who have a Vodafone customer contract (main card) with a 24-month minimum term, EUR 25 one-time connection fee, EUR 15 monthly package cost and further usage-based fees (e.g. EUR 0.40 or EUR 0.60/ min. for standard domestic calls).
