Question about Phones
With the indulgence of Compurepair, ivofreax10 and ser71....
If I understand your concern right, on your GE Cordless:
1. red light flashing onincoming call,
2. replaced the battery;
3. displays "READY", "TALK" or "UNAVAILABLE";
4. receive audio messages on the answering machine;
5. receive incoming calls.
a. no dial tone;
b. no ringing;
b. no dial out.
Things you can try:
i. unplug the base from the mains for over an hour to reset the system;
ii. once powered back, place the handset to the base unit's cradle for half a minute to "pair" the two. Pls try redoing the setup steps again;
iii. check if your home telephone wiring uses the 4 wire. the GE to my understanding is 2 wire only. If you have used the phone previously without this issue, pls disregard.
iv. if the handset battery is new, pls try charging overnight.
v. verify/try that this is the only phone connected to your phoneline;
vi. verify that Ringer in the handset is set to ON.
Resetting the system can and may delete all stored information.
If all else fails you may need to contact GE at 1-800-448-0329.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Did you pay the Bill ?
this seems as if it,s incoming calls only. Check the line with an alternative Phone. This will verify the lines good. And eliminate that One.
Also check if theres A Tone/Pulse setting.
This can also have adverse effects.
If this is on an adaptor fitting with internet access, try removing the adaptor, and plugging the phone direct into the Socket.
Or try the phone on a seperate or diferent Socket.
Hope This helps.
