Question about GE 25841GE3 5.8 GHz Twin Cordless Expansion Handset

Open Question

MSG WAITING OFF/ON is annoying

I have a set of GE cordless phones (model# 25841GE3-A). Whenever I try to scroll through the caller ID list OR if I start dialing a number before pressing "Talk", I get this stupid message, "MSG WAITING OFF/ON" (either OFF or ON). Apparently it's a visual call waiting indicator that lets me know if I have voice mail or not. It is NEVER helpful, only annoying, because I have to wait several seconds before starting all over again with whatever I was dialing. Is there any way to turn this off? I've heard that it may even be my voice mail provider's fault (TWC), but they don't even know about it. Help.

Ringer does't sound, manual says "switch it on". Doesn't tell me where the switch is. GE. Model 28811 series DECT 6.0 cordless.


With the phone off, press the #/pause button. The display will show "set ringer level 5", using the caller ID/volume button scroll to the level you want. Press the #/pause button to save your setting.

Caller ID Problem on the GE2811 Twin cordless phone system


How to get the caller ID to work on the additional GE DECT phone handsets. You must follow these steps in the exact order :
#1 - unplug the base phone
#2 - unplug the telephone line from the base phone
#3 - remove the battery packs from the phones
#4 - wait 10 minutes. reverse the order when assembling. Put battery packs in phones, put the telephone line back in the base phone and lastly plug all phones back in.
It takes about another 10 minutes after that before all phone handsets start recognizing caller ID.
