Cordless Handsets don't work

I have the GE Model 25881 corded base with answering machine plus two cordless handsets.  The cordless handsets will not connect to the base so they are useless.  I can only use the base part. 


I unplugged the batteries and the AC from the base, but still no luck.  What's up?

I have a GE cord and cordless speaker model: 26955-GE 900mhz phone which i have had for eight year and I would like to add another cordless phone which GE phone is compatible to what I'm currently using....

If you mean you'd like to add another handset to the base unit on this phone, I'm afraid you can't. This isn't a multi-handset phone and isn't expandable. If you want the kind of system that has the main base unit and several separate handsets, you'll have to start fresh with a new system. They aren't expensive.

How do I set the time and date

I went to the GE website and then to the electronics tab. It redirected me to Thompson website. I found the manual there. It didn't clearly say how to fix the base/answering machine clock; however, it told you how to do it for the handsets (which were not the problem.) I held one of the handsets close to the base when I redid the clock in the handset, and it finally fixed the base clock.

Unable to talk on two handsets at same time when receiving a call

Unfortunately that is the untold story about cordless phones they only have the capability of 1 open line be it the handset or or the base. There are some very pricey multi line systems, I have the same system bought two extra handsets and found out too late that I can only use them one at a time! Sorry probably not the answer you were looking for but thats the reality...

Cordless phone 25881

Sounds like a power problem.
This model of phone will work as a regular corded phone when no ac power is available.
IE the cordless function is only available when you have electricity.
- is the ac adapter plugged into a working outlet.
- is the ac adapter working.
- is the ac adapter pluged into the base.

hope this helps

GE Phone Model 25881

Per the instruction manual, there is supposed to be a switch on the base (look on the back or bottom) for TONE/PULSE mode. Here is a link to the manual: In the "troubleshooting" section, there is this entry: Dial tone is OK, but can?t dial out: Make sure the TONE/PULSE setting on the base is set to the type of phone service you are subscribed to.
