Question about GE 28128EE2 Phone

Open Question

GE28128EE2 Cell Fusion

I have a PROBLEM that makes the BLUETOOTH connectivity feature, the primary differentiating feature of the phone, BASICALLY USELESS. Handling cell calls should be easy. One would expect a cell call to go unanswered until (a) a handset picks up in cell mode, (b) the basestation answering system handles after option-defined number of rings, or (c) the cell service terminates the call. Unfortunately, that isn't how my GE28128EE2 handles cell calls.

When the system is bluetooth bonded to my cell phone, incoming cell calls are routed to the base station speaker after three rings. So, if I don't "pickup" by press blinking "cell" on a handset within three rings, I must physically get to the base station which is "off-hook", speaker active.

Thompson support line suggested a "hard reset". "Hard reset", (remove batteries, power off, wait 15 minutes, power back on) did not fix the problem.

1. Is this behaviour observed on all GE28128EE2 phones?
2. Is there any way to stop the GE28128EE2 base station from directing cell calls to the speaker after 3 rings?

    Fixed my own problem... I silenced the ringer on the cell phone and that fixed the issue for me.

    I'm guessing the "bluetooth Hands Free Profile (HFP)" is by default issuing a command to the bluetooth client on the phone to "auto answer." When I silence the ringer on my A780, it sends the message ring until answered.

    Bottom line, if you've got a 28128EE2 that is answering cell calls to the base station speaker, look for "disable headset auto answer" in the bluetooth options for your cell phone.

SOURCE: Bluetooth disconnects after 5 minutes

I know this sounds silly, but try having your cell phone more than a couple feet away from the base of the DECT phone. Bluetooth can have issues when they are really close together. I have mine setting about 6ft away without problems.

How can I get my KX-TGE263 corless phone to connect

Please refer user guide available at the attached link.

I am assuming you have trouble answering incoming landline calls from the phone and there is no problem with making outgoing calls on landline. Also I am assuming you are using cell phones and do not have any panasonic handsets.

First thing to check is whether you can answer using the base unit or not. From there on you will have to then check if the cell units are actually working with the base unit. Follow the bluetooth setup instructions and make sure your cell phone is compatible.etc.

How to register a bluetooth cell phone with a 24127fe2 base?

Bring your mobile phone, with its bluetooth radio turned on, between 2 and 10 feet away from the 28127 base. Press and hold 'CELL 1' (if it is the first phone you are paring) or 'CELL 2' (for the second one) on the 28127 base, until the corresponding LED flashes. The base is now in pairing mode. Now, make your phone's bluetooth application search for new devices. After a while, the 28127 should appear on screen. Select it and make the application proceed. If a passkey (or PIN or pairing code) is requested, enter '0000' (four zeros). The paring process is successful when the LED gets lit, indicating that it is connected to your phone. To disconnect, press and hold 'CELL 1' (or 'CELL 2), until the LED is turned off. To reconnect it to your phone, briefly press 'CELL 1' (or 'CELL 2').
By the way, just in case you happen to be miss your cordless phone's user manual, feel free to download it from this location.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.
Cheers! Carlos

Phone won't dial out

I have a GE 6.0 cell fusion phone, Model# 28128. It doesn't give a dial tone. So we cannot make or hear any calls. The incoming calls go to voicemail. I used to power off and on to solve this problem, but that temporary idea does not work. Please help.
Any ideas?

Ge Cell Fusion Bluetooth Connection will not stay connected

I have the same problem. I dont understand what the 'auto connect' feature as you would think it would re-pair with the cell once the bluetooth is disconnected, right?
