GE 21008GE2-A Dual-Handset cordless phone

One of the handsets doesn't ring. The display screen alternates between "Handset 1" and "searching". The rest of the functions seem to be functional.

Re: GE 21008GE2-A Dual-Handset cordless phone

Here's what seemed to work for me.

Hit the button that says ringer. then hit the number 1
then hit the button marked program (it is also the
mute button). Some combination of those moves
helped me go from Ringer OFF to Ringer ON.

GE 21008GE2 2.4GHz Dual-Handset Cordless Telephone. Lost manual. Need to know how to access my answering machine messages from another phone out side of the house.

You can download the manual at

The 21008GE2 is a phone, not an answering machine. It doesn't store messages that can be accessed from the phone or another phone.

If you want to access messages on an answering machine, you'll have to tell us the make and model of the answering machine.

Second phone not working.

From the manual:

MAIN BASE BEFORE USE. After the 2nd handset has charged for 16
hours, place it on the main base station for 20 seconds, it will then
automatically register and verify its security code.

Cordless Phone

You did record a message on the answerer, didn't you? Mine displayed that until I recorded the outgoing message for the answerer. You do not need any service from your phone provider. The answerer in the base unit simply records the caller's message when you don't answer after a set number of rings. The manual tells you how to name the handset, which is a nice feature if you don't wish to use "unit 1, unit 2, etc".
