Hello, Be sure that you have set up the digital answering machine service first hand, the manual should give detailed instructions on how to do this.

Good day Mickey, First I'll provide you with a link to the manual if you need it: I know it's a weird lokking link, it's a server from thompson which is the parent company for GE home electronics, not exactly yoo east to find. Anyway on to the problem at hand, To make it answer after more rings there is switch on the back of the base. It hase 3 settings 3/5/TS. If set to 3 it will pick up in rings, set it to 5 and it will pick up in 5 rings. The TS setting stands for TollSaver, do not use this setting, TS will cause it to pick up in 2 rings. Set it to 5, however if you want to get 10rings before it picks up there's a little trick. When the answering machine gets full it will start picking up in 10rings, they do this so you know your answering machine is full. You can still leave a meassge even when it's full, it will automatically delete the oldest message to make room for a new one. However the display on the machin will display an F instead of the number of new messages. Well I hope the helps with that problem, because I hate to be the bearer of bad news but that phone has a maximum capability of 10 speed dials (0-9) and that's the max. There are models on the market with lots of speed dials but there usually corded phones. Well Good Luck & I hope this helps. L8R

I bought a GE 6.0 Cordless phone with a phone and answering maching and a second phone. When I attempt to hook it up I get static and noise on the line. What is my problem?

this can be caused by a few things, depending on the type of phone and where it is....if the phone has a built in amplifier, the whistling could be caused by acoustic feedback due to the volume level being set too high, also your phone could be picking up some stray frequencies from somewhere, eg flourescent lights, or radio frequencies, a hearing aid, or there could even be fault on the phone line.... sorry to seem so vague, but without more specific information were fishing for clues.

Time won't set

The problem is not the phone, it is the modem. If your phone is connected to a modem you will have to set the time zone on the modem then it will reset and so fix the phone.
