Hold button drops calls GE 29488GE2

My phone sporatically drops calls when I use the hold botton and does it randomly. I cannot reproduce the problem by dialing another line and using the hold button. It happens a lot but not every time and I cannot reproduce the problem. Is there anything out there regarding why this might be happening with this phone?

We have three lines coming into our office and use the hold button to transfer calls between people. It is a small office

Does this just happen with the one phone ?
if so, try swopping that phone with another of the same type and see if the problem transfers with the phone or remains at the original location, if it transfers, you have a faulty phone, if it remains, you have a fault in the switch associated with that port.

Remote Forwarding


Call forwarding is a feature offered by your phone company, not a feature of any phone. With many companies you dial *72 then the number to be forwarded to. That phone will ring and you must confirm the forwarding. To be certain, contact your phone company and ask them for exact instructions.

How do i put a caller on hold


Tha particular phone does not have a HOLD button. If you are referring to picking up a call waiting call that "beeps" in while you are on your current call, that can be answered by depressing the FLASH/EXIT button.

Here is a link to the manual:

Ge fourline telephone 29488GE2-A There are annoying loud beeps on other lines when one line is on hold. How do I get rid of it? You cannot talk on the lines until someone picks up the call that is placed...


The phone generates a low beep tone about once every 10 seconds for the person on hold. This lets them know that they were not hung up on but at the same time it is not needed if you have music like a typical office puts on the holding lines. I talked with the manufacturer and they told me that this feature can not be disabled through programming. There is however a on-hold aftermarket adapter that can be placed in front of the music system that will eliminate the tone (Invotel AudioImage SX4400EZ). The cost we paid for this device was about $200 which has a audio input and in/out plugs for all 4 lines. This aftermarket system is designed to replace the beeps with music you provide through the audio input.

Random calls put on hold and transfered to other handsets


Your keypad is dirty or worn and the pad is touching these selections. It's time for a new phone unless you can take this one apart and clean the pad.

Forwarding phone


This is not a phone equipment service but rather a phone service provider service.

YOU CAN FORWARD but to do this you need to have this feature enabled by your phone service provider. Then, follow their instructions on how to enable and disable this feature based on your calling plan.

RCA 4 line phone


Hi Richman,

If you have more than one phone line which I assume that you do -if one party has not completely hung up the handset after putting someone on hold when you pick it up on your end you will hear that beeping noise that you are talking about. Have them pick back up the line while you are on it and replace the handset again on thier phone to disconnect completely.

I hope this helps (trial and error)
Thanks
