How do you set the number of times the phone rings before the machine picks up on my GE answering machine? I can not find the manual

Hi kcee
I think I did find the manual here : (Rev. 1 E&S).pdf
and here :

you can find more types here :

You can find General Electric home page here:

I suggest you contact GE on the link to get the manual and understanding your answer machine with a reply :

FOR Thomson Consumer Electronics :
you get there homepage here :

I did try to find the manual for your specific phone, but could only find these answer machines here (previous and next model number) :

source :

on the second manual here on page 9 you find the settings to answer. I think they have used the same shortcuts for these models. They write ;

### This feature is used to set the unit to answer a call after
a specific number of rings.
The unit announces the rings to answer. To change,
press NEXT or PREVIOUS. To set and go on to the next
item, press SET.
1. Press and release NEXT or PREVIOUS until the unit
announces and displays the correct number of rings
for the answerer to pick up.
2. Once the rings to answer is set, press SET. The unit
announces the rings to answer, then enters the
incoming message length menu.
The toll saver is the final setting in the Rings to Answer..........####

For the GE model you find these features on page 17

One last thing, you can contact Thomson Consumer Electronics for more specific answer or get the manual here :
they have also a phone :
"For customer service assistance, dial 1.800.448.0329. Our hours of operation are Monday thru Friday, 8am to 8pm Eastern, Saturday and Sunday 10am to 7pm Eastern."

Hope that helps
IF NOT then try to return here
Have a nice time over there

I just changed my phone and was not advised that it would by-pass my answering machine and d I do not know how to retrieve my messages from my phone.

Sounds like your new phone has an answer machine in it and it is grabbing the call b4 the other machine. Go in your manual for the new phone and set the seconds before answer to the longest possible setting. That way the old answering machine will capture the call before the new one.
