Line in Use Message on Screen- GE 28213 Series DECT 6.0

I just bought this phone this morning. It was on clearance; marked down to 2/3 the regular price. Now, I am wondering if the reason is because it's a lemon. After charging the handsets, I took them out of the charger, as recommended on another forum. It was only about an hour later when I noticed that both handsets had the message Line in Use on their screens. I used my cell phone to dial the handset, and it went straight to my voice mail message. I then fooled around with it for a few minutes until I decided to try to call my cell phone from one of the handsets. That seemed to work as far as clearing the glitch, but, I am a little nervous now about whether I should keep this phone. If I hadn't accidentally noticed that message, my calls would all still be going straight to voice mail. I read about other problems with this phone on other websites. I always research before I buy something, but, this was an impulse buy because it was such a good price, and I needed a new phone.

To get a line you have to have the handsets in the stands or you have to use the end button to close the call
the phone stands are the battery charger and need the handsets need to there all the time-- unless answering a call --the operation is
all the handsets are in the stands being charged
a phone call comes in by lifting a handset to answer, the call is connected automatically without pressing the talk button
on finishing the call you press end but if you do not replace the handset in the stand but leave it say on the table , when you get another call you have to press the talk button to be connected as it was not picked up from the charger stand and so will not connect automatically when one handset is talking , all the other handsets can listen in and if one call is not ended , there is a line in use sound and no line
it is all in the owners manual and if you didn't get the manual , go google and down load it from the manufacturers web page as a pdf version for printing

SOURCE: base phone handset #1 holding charge

The base unit should not need a charge. It should be powered by the plug in adapter. It may have a battery to keep operation for a short time in a power outage. The adapter may be loose, the adapter could be broken or the plug in the phone may be broken.

I HAVE THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM. I'M ALSO LOOKING FOR A SOLUTION.
WHEN MINE DOES THAT I UNPLUG THE ADAPTER FROM THE WALL FOR A COUPLE SECONDS THEN PLUG IT IN . IT'S VERY ANNOYING. IF I FIND THE SOLUTION, I'LL LET YOU KNOW. IF YOU GET A SOLUTION, MAYBE
YOU CAN LET ME KNOW.

I have a GE model 28213 DECT 6.0 home phone that I can't get to ring when someone calls. I can set the phone to ring 5, but when I call the phone it does not ring it just flashes.


I have a GE model 28112EE2-A DECT 6.0 with a similiar problem. I have had it for over a year and sometimes it won't ring but it flashes. What I did was unplugged the power for about 20 seconds and plugged it back in. Then it was fine. Hope that helps.

Manual for a GE DECT handsfree phone


To get a copy for my GE 28213 I did a search at:http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/home.asp
I put your model in the search and it came back with no results so perhaps it is not available in English. There is also a "contact us" tab at that site perhaps you can get help there.
Good Luck
