You can download the instructions from GE here. In the meantime, try placing the handsets onto the main base unit for 20 seconds each. The instructions say this is how you register the extra handsets with the base.

Ge Telephone Solutions Handset can not link. • If any handsets become inoperable, place it on the main base
cradle for 20 seconds to re-register. No dial tone • Check or repeat installation steps • Make sure the base power cord is connected to a working
electrical outlet. • Make sure the telephone line cord is connected to the base unit
and the modular phone jack? • Disconnect the base from the wall phone jack and connect another
phone to the same jack. If there is no dial tone on the second phone, the
problem might be your wiring or local service. • The handset might be out of range of the base. Move closer to
the base. • Make sure the battery is properly charged (for 16 hours). • Ensure the battery pack is installed correctly. • Did the handset beep when you pressed the TALK/CALL BACK button?
Did the in use indicator come on? The battery may need to be charged. http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/IB/25922GE2_IB.pdf
This exact thing happened to me. Same model number. No matter what I did, the new handsets would not register.
The solution? Reset the entire system: 1. On the BASE - Unplug from wall both power and phone line. Unplug battery from base handset. 2. ON the Extension phone - unplug from wall and unplug battery from handset. 3. Wait AT LEAST 5 minutes. 4. Plug back in BASE power. 5. Plug back in BASE phone line. 6. Plug back in EXTENSION handset battery. Don't plug in BASE handset yet. 7. Follow steps to program EXTENSION. When successful: 8. Plug back in BASE handset battery.
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.
You may need to "reset" the whole system. Do this by : 1 Unplug phone line, power to charger base, and remove the batteries. 2 Wait a couple of minutes. 3 Plug in batteries first, then phone line, and finally the power cord.
Then try to set the phones in the basecharger to register.
