I contacted GE today and they told me how to get the caller ID to work on the additional handsets. You must follow these steps in the exact order given.

#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 phones start recognizing caller ID but it now works fine.

SOURCE: registering handset

If all else fails, read the instructions.

"4. Place the handset in the base cradle. The charge/in use indicator turns on, verifying the battery is charging. The unit will take 20 seconds to register and verify its security code. READY shows in the handset’s display."

SOURCE: I have a new Uniden cordless phone. The handsets

You can downlaod the manual from uniden in pdf form.

the -4 or -5 refers to how many handsets you set. The 1580 is the actual model number.

To register I think all you do is place them on the master pad once then on their own charger stations. On some models they come all done so you just plug them in charge them up and use them.

GE Cordless 25952EE1 A Cordless wont register in base base flashing CL

After talking with Thomson Inc today your best bet is to get rid of the phone. I found out today this phone has a real problem as I see it. I can use my handset on other bases. So that means anyone with this model handset can access your line. Thomson agreed today that this is possible. All I got was a SORRY!

Not registered

hello there i think this is because you need to register the second handset with the base here are the instructions

Registration links the base to a cordless handset. Once a handset is
registered it can use the base’s phone connection. A cordless handset will
not operate until it is registered to the base. During the registration
process, keep the handset near the base.
1. Press the flash/program button on the base until LINK HANDSET shows
in the display. 2NO is the default setting.
2. Press the 1 number key or press the MESSAGES/CID (or) button
on the base to scroll to 1YES.
3. Press flash/program to confirm handset is linked to the base. WAITING
HANDSET REGISTRATION shows in the display.
4. Press the flash/program button on the handset until LINK BASE? shows
in the display. 2NO is the default setting.
5. Press 1 on the handset keypad or cid/vol (or) button on the
handset to scroll to 1YES.confirmation tone when the handset is successfully linked to the base.

Handset needs registration

I had the same problem and have seemed to figure it out. Take the handset near the base. Press the Prog/Mute button at the bottom of the phone. It will display a message to press the Pager on the base. The phone will then ask you for a Handset Name. Press the Prog/Mute button again and it will name the handset Handset 1.. it is working

GE 25952 5.8 GHz

I just called GE/Thomson tech support (1-800-720-2094). GE cordless phones do not allow users to pick up an additional extension so that two people in the house can speak with a caller. He explained that it was for privacy.
I will be taking back my system today. :(
