Question about Uniden Cordless Phone
I have GE Cordless phone Model No # 27996GE3-A with two receiver sets. When I dial, I can hear the person on the other end, however the other person can not hear me. Is there a "un mute" button or setting that will turn this phone into a normal phone?
Thx for the help
I looked at the manual, and there doesn't seem to be a way to un-mute the mic. On other models, the Menu button is also the Mute button.. The only thing I saw that might be the cause is the following:
If this only happens on one of the handsets, did you register that handset? It must sit in the base cradle for 20 seconds before it's registered:
NOTE: In case of a power failure lasting more than 5 minutes, you must put both handsets on the main base cradle for 20 seconds to re-register.

My Mom had this same problem. I found these instructions on Uniden's website (uniden.com) under the "Owner Manuel" section.
Here you go - good luck!
Using the Speed Dial Memory
Storing Numbers in Speed Dial Memory
Your cordless phone can store up to ten numbers (up to 20 digits each) in the speed dial
memory. To store number in memory:
1) When the phone is in standby, press [memory]. The talk/batt low LED flashes.
2) Use the keypad to enter the phone number.
(To enter a 2-second pause between numbers, press [redial/
pause]. Each pause counts as a digit. )
3) Press [memory] again.
4) Select the speed dial location where you would like to store the
number (  to  ). You will hear a confirmation tone indicating
that the number has been stored.
• Storing a number to a speed dial location will
overwrite the any previously stored number without
• When storing numbers into memory and the handset is idle (i.e., no key is
pressed) for more than 0 seconds, it will beep rapidly, and then the phone
will return to standby.
Dialing a Stored Number
1) When the phone is in standby, press [talk], and listen for a dial tone.
2) Press [memory] and enter the speed dial entry ( – ) that has the stored number
you want to dial. (If you enter a digit that does not contain a stored number, the
handset will beep rapidly, and the phone will not dial.)
The speed dial memory is not limited to phone numbers. You can store any number (up
to 20 digits) that you need to enter once your call connects. This is referred to as Chain
Dialing. An example is a frequently refilled prescription number. Store your pharmacy
phone number in one speed dial and your most frequently refilled prescription number
as another speed dial. To use, once you ring your pharmacy's automated prescription
line, simply press [memory] and the speed dial number where you stored your account
Erasing a Stored Number from Memory
1) With the phone in standby, press [memory] twice.
2) Press the number of the speed dial entry. A tone indicates that the stored number is
erased from memory.
