Question about GE 2945 Phone (29451)
We have five GE 2945's installed. Everything works fine, except when I put a caller on "hold" on our second line, the call gets dropped every time. Any suggestions on what the problem may be?
SOURCE: RCA 4 line phone
If you have more than one phone line which I assume that you do -if one party has not completely hung up the handset after putting someone on hold when you pick it up on your end you will hear that beeping noise that you are talking about. Have them pick back up the line while you are on it and replace the handset again on thier phone to disconnect completely.
I hope this helps (trial and error)

does this just happen with the one phone ?
if so, try swopping that phone with another of the same type and see if the problem transfers with the phone or remains at the original location, if it transfers, you have a faulty phone, if it remains, you have a fault in the switch associated with that port.

SOURCE: How do i put a caller on hold
Tha particular phone does not have a HOLD button. If you are referring to picking up a call waiting call that "beeps" in while you are on your current call, that can be answered by depressing the FLASH/EXIT button.
Here is a link to the manual:

The phone generates a low beep tone about once every 10 seconds for the person on hold. This lets them know that they were not hung up on but at the same time it is not needed if you have music like a typical office puts on the holding lines. I talked with the manufacturer and they told me that this feature can not be disabled through programming. There is however a on-hold aftermarket adapter that can be placed in front of the music system that will eliminate the tone (Invotel AudioImage SX4400EZ). The cost we paid for this device was about $200 which has a audio input and in/out plugs for all 4 lines. This aftermarket system is designed to replace the beeps with music you provide through the audio input.

The problem in question is not a generic one as it is a first to me. Personally i think the problem is from the phone company and not the handsets. To determine if it is the GE handsets i would advise you disconnect your 2 handsets and try with the previously disconnected phones. If the problem persists the the problem is with the phones but if otherwise then the problem is from the phone company.
If it is the phones all that needs to be done is reset the settings to remove any barring that may have been on the unit.
Hope this solution has been helpful?
