    I get two beeps when I hit the talk button to make a new call

  • brina1123 Mar 19, 2009

    Sometimes, when I try to make a call, I press the talk button and I get "beep-beep", and then nothing. I have to unplug the power cord from the bottom of the phone, then when I plug it back in it works fine - after it does its "searching". There's no indication of a problem with the phone and I don't know if it interferes with incoming calls (I would imagine it does). I deeply regret buying this phone, and I will be contacting GE.

    I just looked at 22 reviews of this product from Target.com and have come to the realization (belatedly) that this phone is a piece of junk and should be recalled and refunded whether or not owners can produce a receipt. It's less than worthless!

    I sent them an e-mail. I wonder if the your replacement phone will work or is just another one from the same pile of junk. Keep us posted, brina

Not really a solution, but...

Please contact GE. I did and was told that they don't have reports of this being a problem. We need to make them aware of this (maybe we'll get lucky and they'll issue a recall). However, be warned that they do not have a toll free number for tech support or customer service, and my call took more than 20 minutes (310-953-9028).

If the phone is still under warranty, which mine is, they will send a replacement. I was given two options for replacement-

(1) Send my phone to them, at my expense, and they will send a replacement. Turn-around is 4-6 weeks! I can’t wait that long. This phone is used in a home office. I took option 2.

(2) Use a credit card for a temporary payment hold. They will send a replacement phone, which I should receive in 5-7 days, and a return label for the bad phone. Once I receive the replacement, I need to return the bad phone within 14 days and they will remove the credit card hold.

    Received the replacement. Same problem! They'll send another replacement. I was told that if this next replacement is also defective then my "case" will be sent to higher management. GE tech support will not replace with a different model, that will be up to higher management after I go through this nightmare, again! Now if only they would reimburse my phone bill. I will never buy another GE phone - I have learned my lesson.

My GE #28223 phone will not let me answer incoming calls at times


This happens when the base somehow gets de-registered from the handset. There are two ways to solve this.
Disconnect the base from the electrical outlet for about 5 seconds, then plug it back in.
The other way to solve it is to re-register the phone with the base. Consult your user manual to follow the process. to do this.

When preparing making a call, I get a series of short dial tones.


Have you tried erasing all of your recorded messages? Usually the short dial tone beeps mean you have a pending message.

Ge 900 MHz cordless phone set on rotary dialing


Lisa, If the 900MHZ phone is Model 26928M programming for rotary dial usually goes like below, can't hurt to try on any model. TONE/PULSE DIALING This adjustment allows you to select tone (touch-tone) or pulse (rotary) mode dialing. The phone is pre-set for touch-tone use. To set to tone or pulse dialing: 1. Press and hold the program button for two seconds. You will hear a beep. 2. Press the *tone button to select Tone Dialing or press #pause to select Pulse Dialing. 3. Press the program button again. You will hear a confirmation tone.
