Question about GE 29897GE2 Corded Phone

1 Answer

Memory Full? I tried to record a new message for my answering machine, but when I hold down the "greeting" button to do that it doesn't work. After the phone voice tells me to record my new message after the beep, the phone beeps, and then beeps again instantly and tells me that the memory is full. I don't have any messages on the machine, nor any phone numbers in caller ID. Is there a way to wipe the memory? Am I just missing something? Thanks for any help! SepSep

Re: Memory Full?

I unplugged my power supply cord from back of phone and replug it again, I found there were in fact four messages. After I deleted them I was able to use the memo button again. So perhaps this willhelp you, too. Ackey320

How to record a message on a GE digital message machine

You didn't specify the model, so I can't be absolutely certain. On most GE machines, press and hold the GREETING button, record the message at the beep, then release the button when done.

If this doesn't work, please reply to this message and specify the model of your phone/answering machine.

I want to change my answering machine greeting

For the DECT2180, press Mesage/Mute on any handset to access the answering system. Wait for the announcements to be finished or press 5 to skip. Then press 8. Wait for the message "record greeting" then begin speaking. Press 8 to stop recording. The system will play back the greeting. Press End to save the greeting and exit the system.

For the DECT2080, press and hold Greet on the base. When you hear "record greeting", start speaking your message. Press Greet again or the play/stop button to stop recording your message. Press Greet again to play back the current outgoing message.

Which Uniden do you have? There are several models. Manuals for all of the current ones are here: .

Most models will be similar. Setting a new message when you call into the system is a totally different issue and not all Uniden phones support the feature. Read your manual.

I hope this helps.

My answering machine is not picking up voice messages

Make sure the answering system is on. (You can use either the base Answer On button or Menu > Message Play (press Select) and then 8 on the handset.) Make sure the memory is not full; the unit can hold ~64 messages including the greeting. The base will show a flashing "Full" when the memory is full.

Finally make sure the system isn't set to "Greeting Only". From the handset, press Menu and navigate to "Initial Setting" then press the right arrow. Scroll to "Set answering" and again press the right arrow. Scroll to "Recording Time" and again press the right arrow. Select the choice you want either by scrolling or by pressing 1 through 3. If you press 0, you get Greeting Only. Press Save and then Off.

Please note that the unit's answering system is not compatible with Voice Mail service from your telephone line provider. You will need to have the Voice Mail disabled or leave the unit's answering system off.

The manual is available here: for more information.

I hope this helps.
