Re: GE DECT 6.0 GHZ cordless fone (model 28111) don't...
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A DND BUTTON ON THE BASE THEN YOU MUST UNPLUG THE BASE POWER FROM THE WALL AND UNPLUG THE BATTERY FROM THE PHONE. PLUG THE BATTERY BACK IN THE PHONE THEN PLUG THE BASE BACK IN THE WALL.
THE DND WILL THEN TURN OFF! JUST DID IT 5 MINUTES AGO (11/8/08)

assuming all the settings are correct, and sometimes there's a tiny switch on the handset for ringer, that has to be on, try the 'page' feature [the button on the base to make the handset ring to find it] - if that doesn't work, there's a very good chance the ringer itself is bad. i've seen that many times.
press "mute" key to access menu, press the up or down arrow key labeled "caller ID- volume" until you get to "handset setup", press the "mute" key again, press the down or up arrow until you have "defaultsetting" selected, press "mute" key, press "1", then press "mute" once more. At this point your handset will reset clearing the indicator for all the handsets. I've had to do this twice on my phones and it worked every time.
What worked for me was to call my phone from another phone and leave myself a voicemail. I then went in and retrieved and deleted that voicemail. Once I hung up from my voicemail service my handsets reset about 10 seconds later.
How to get the caller ID to work on the additional GE DECT phone handsets. You must follow these steps in the exact order :
#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 phone handsets start recognizing caller ID.
