Question about GE 27831 2.4 GHz Twin Cordless Phone
We have recently puchased a GE Model 27831 Series 2.4 GHz Cordless Telephone Sysytem and cannot seem to find how to leave a message on the phone when we are not able to anser the phone, so incoming callers can leave a message after the beep. Could you please help ud with this ASAP.
The 27831 isn't an answering machine. Please refer to the documentation for the answering machine you have on your phone line. If you require further assistance, please add a comment to this question and specify the make and model of your answering machine.

Hi trinigirl, You should not have to do anything to make the caller id information come through. There is no programming to perform for the regular caller id identification on your display after the second ring (it takes at least one ring cycle for the digital information to pass through). Your model also has the talking caller id function, which will announce in English the callers name or a custom name you can prepare in the phone book of handset number 1. With all that said, you are not getting caller id showing after the second ring, then your phone is bad (which is pretty rare for this symptom), or your phone line still does not have caller id activated. To troubleshoot your problem you need another phone line with working caller id and/or a different phone that is known good to pass caller id. That way you can interchange the phones/lines to see if it is your line or your phone. My guess it is your line somehow, though I have fixed phones that won't pass caller id, but rarely. If it is your phone, try rebooting it, thats about all you can do short of sending it in for repair. Let me know how it goes. CG

Well if the phone has been bought abroad and being used in India you will face this problem. this is because of the format of transmitting the caller id info being different. In USA it is STF and in India it is DTMF. You need a convertor in the phone line which is DTMF to STF. IF you find onw in Delhi pl let me also know.
