Beep During Conversation (New Question)

I'm posing this question again because there was no solution offered for my prior post. I have a GE Speakerphone, and every so often, while I'm in conversation, there will be a single beep. This does not happen in all conversations -- I'd say it occurs about once every ten times or so. My provider is Verizon. I've called Verizon several times about this, but it claims it has tested my line and there is no problem. The batteries of the phone are relatively new. Does anyone know what might be causing this?

Re: Beep During Conversation (New Question)

That beep means that you have another call coming in. If you want to take the other call you can tell your first caller to hold then push the hang up button one time and say hello. Now you will be speaking to caller number two. To return to caller one just push the hang up button a second time.

Phone has beep & no dial tone. Screen says its searching

I was unable to locate a manual for your phone online, but can offer some suggestions to solve your problem.

Most cordless phones beep in battery low, out of range, and other situations. Since it is also displaying the "Searching" message, it indicates that it lost its link with the base due to being brought too far from it or the battery power has fallen to low to permit use as far as it may have worked before.

The quick fix is to simply place the phone into the base / charger. This re-establishes a security link between the cordless handset and your telephone line. This is a safeguard that is used to prevent others with the same cordless phone from merely getting "near your base / charger" and gaining access to your dial tone to place calls on your phone line.

If the battery is low, it should left to remain on the base / charger long enough to fully charge the battery. If the battery fails to charge, there may be an issue with the base / charger; but it is much more likely to be a problem with a battery that has reached the end of its useful life (batteries seldom last more than a couple of years and may not last a single year depending on usage). Either condition will require replacement of the faulty device before using again.

If you need more help, you may want to try Thompson Electronics (if purchased prior to 2011) at 800-448-0329 or their website; as it appears GE contracts with them for support after the warranty period.

Good luck!

How can I retriev messages from my home ohine/ansering machine???? PLEASE help. Model # 29893GE1B

To retrieve your messages from another phone call your telephone number and when you hear the beep enter your 3-digit security code (if you haven't set it the default code is 1 2 3). The answering machine will beep to confirm the code. You can skip the greeting by entering the security code anytime during the greeting.
To hear your messages locally press and release the PLAY/STOP button. To stop playback, press and release PLAY/STOP again. To restart the message that is playing, press and hold PREVIOUS until the message restarts. To replay the previous message, press and release PREVIOUS. To play the next message, press and release NEXT.
Hope it's all good news - Thank you for using

Intermittant click (beep on callers end) when talking

Make sure your not around anything that can cause interference, like a microwave, radio, tv, computer, all these things have caused clicking on my phones and on the listeners end. If that isn't the problem then there is something wrong with your actual phone line and you need to contact your service provider for that fix. Hope i've helped!

How to switch between calls - Call Waiting

I had this problem myself I even emailed Simens company but answer. First be sure your telephone company support this option then from main menu choose Setting then go to Base, In Base Settings select Add. Features option then Recall, in Recall there are different options from 80ms to 800ms Flash time delay (It depends on your phone company it works for me all the option above 120ms). Then click OK. During a conversation if you hear the short beep you have second call by choosing the right delay in aforementioned way and Clicking the R key at the left bottom on the phone you can easily switch back and forth between the calls.
