Question about GE 21028GE3 Cordless Phone

Strange telephone happenings

A friend has a cordless phone with speaker phone. She was talking to her sister, then hung up the phone. Within the hour she had a face to face conversation with her husband(not a phone conversation). Conversation was conducted in the vicinity of the phone. Part of the conversation she had with her husband , somehow, made its way to the answering machine of the sister. Not the entire conversation, but just a couple of words toward the end of the conversation.

On a different occasion the same sister received the entire conversation between two different family members on her answering machine. This was a phone conversation. The sister was not a part of the conversation.

What is it about telephone circuitry that would allow malfunctions of this sort?

Im assuming that my friend is sober, and sane. He appears normal.
He's also not prone to practical jokes and such. Im assuming that what he reported is what happened, or at least he believes it happened.

Re: Strange telephone happenings

My guess, assuming nobody recorded the conversation, is that the answering machine picked up before the call could be answered. Check your answering machine for the number of rings before it turns on.

Or maybe your answering machine has a memo record on it that is malfunctioning that recorded a memo

Do the black & red wire underneath the speaker phone be connected & wher to

If you are talking about the compartment on the right side of the base of a Motorola M681, then you do not have to connect anything. You can add an optional battery (the same battery pack as for the handset) to keep the phone working for a few hours during a power failure. (If the wires have been pulled loose, than the backup battery might not work. However, I'm not familiar with the wiring for this model.) The handset battery must be properly inserted and charged for that to work.

You also must plug in the AC power cord (to the phone and a good outlet) and the telephone line cord.

I hope this helps.
