Question about GE Phones

Bluetooth disconnects after 5 minutes

I have GE Model 28129 Dect6.0 Cordless Handset that is supposed to be able to connect to my cell phone using Bluetooth.  However after I connect the cell phone to the base unit it disconnects 5 minutes later.  
If I make a call during the 5 minutes that the base unit and my cell phone are connected it stays connected until I hang up.  I have called this way for over 15 minutes without a disconnect.  
How can I keep the base unit and the cell phone connected when I am not making any calls?

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.

GE handset 28101 will not sync with base-GE 28129


Unplug power cord from the base for ten or fifteen minutes, this is the only user level operation that you can do to try fixing the problem.

If after resetting the base still do not find the handset, then either the base or the handset is faulty.

If the base works fine with a different handset, then it is the handset.

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?

Hand set out of range disply is on. How do I reset.


here are some tips from my manual for out of range problems
hope they help
• Only one handset can be used to make or answer a call anytime.
If another handset attempt to do so, the screen will display OTHER
HANDSET ON and then OR OUT OF RANGE. You might press PHONE
or SPEAKER again until no other handset is using the line. Use the call
transfer feature to transfer a call to another system handset
or use the speakerphone feature so multiple members of your
house can be on an active call at the same time.
• Move the cordless handset closer to the base. You might have moved
out of range.
• Ensure that the base is powered up.
• Place the cordless handset in base cradle for 1 minute to allow the
cordless handset and base to resynchronize channels.
• If the cordless handset is in its base and the charging light does not
come on, refer to the charge light is off in troubleshooting guide.
• Reset the base. Unplug the unit’s electrical power. Wait for 15 seconds
then plug it back in. Allow up to one minute for the cordless handset
and base to reset.
• Other electronic products can cause interference with your cordless
phone. Try installing your phone as far away from these types of elec
tronic devices as possible: wireless routers, radios, radio towers, page
towers, cell phones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, personal
computers, kitchen appliances and cordless phones.

I am having problem with my cordless phone.


Another tip is to remove the battery from the handset for at least 5 seconds. You might want to get a voltage meter and check the voltage on that new battery - maybe it isn't charging properly.

GE Model 27911 DECT 6.0 Additional Cordless Handset not working


I had the same problem. What worked for me, after several unsuccessful registration attempts, was to disconnect the phone handset battery for about 1 min and then reconnect the battery. Run the handset registration procedure again. It registered for me on the first attempt after the battery reinstall. Good luck.
