I also had this problem, with the "CL" flashing with "0". I realized that it wanted me to update the clock, since I had just moved and therefore reset the clock. Try changing the time.

Why does all messages remain on APP after I delete all messages

You apparently have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

I want to change the nombers of the rings to get start the answering machin

These are the instructions from the manual, which I found here:


This feature lets you select the number of times you want to phone to ring
before the answering system answers a call.

1. Make sure your phone is OFF (not in talk mode).
2. Press the MUTE/PROG button to go to the main menu.
3. Press CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to HANDSET SETUP.
4. Press MUTE/PROG button to confirm.
5. Press the CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to the RING SELECT menu.
6. Press MUTE/PROG button to enter the menu. RING SELECT 3 4 5 6 TS shows in the display.
7. Use the CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to the your selection. The default setting is 5.
8. Press the MUTE/PROG button to confirm. You will hear a confirmation tone and the new setting shows in the display.

NOTE: If you select Toll Saver (TS) the unit answers after the 3rd ring if there
are NEW messages, OR the unit answers after the 5th ring if there are NO new
messages. This allows user to access their answerer from another location and
then hang up after 4 rings to save long distance charges.

maggie9, if you buy a phone that has satellites, you can have the main phone plugged into the modem and the satellites don't need plugged into phone lines, they will ring work without them.

Won't work on my cable line

I called Thompson's phone company 1-800-720-2094 (which is who GE goes through) and apparently it is a hardware issue. That couldn't offer any suggestions for the fix except to call the cable company to see if they can issue us a new hardware device. . . . apparently there is a compatability issue. . . .well, duh, ya think?!! The phones don't work with cable lines!

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".
