How i can set up only 3 rings before going to answering machine?

Use the RINGS TO ANSWER switch on the back of the base to set the number of times you want the phone to ring before the answering system answers the call. You may choose 3 rings, 5 rings, or TOLL SAVER (TS).

You can download the manual at

Power was out for 6 hours

That's the code it flashes when you need to set the clock. If you don't have your manual and can't remember how to do it, you can find manuals for most GE cordless phones here. Pick your model from the list. If your exact model isn't listed, a close model number would probably be similar in its setup.

Recording the Outgoing Announcement

For best results when recording, you should be about nine inches from the microphone, and eliminate as much background noise as possible.

1. Make sure the answering system is ON.

2. Press and hold the announce button on the base.

3. Begin speaking after you hear the beep.

4. Release the button when you finish your announcement.

5. Press and release the announce button to review your outgoing announcement.

Cordless Phone

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".
