Please follow these troubleshooting steps;

Tip 1 of 9
Move the handset closer to the base. The operating range may vary with environmental conditions and time of use. There may be places within your environment that a cordless phone will not work well. If the problem only occurs in certain areas of your environment, you can conclude that there is nothing wrong with the phone. Consider trying a phone that operates on a different wireless frequency.



Tip 2 of 9
If you subscribe to DSL service for this telephone line, DSL filters must be plugged into EVERY phone jack that has a phone. The DSL signal can cause static/noise, squealing (similar to fax tones), caller ID disruption and other issues on your line. DSL filters block the high frequency DSL signals from being transmitted to the telephone. If you are not using the DSL filters provided by the telephone company, this will cause static/noise and possibly caller id issues on your phones.
In most cases, we recommend you connect the plug end of the DSL filter into the telephone jack, then connect a telephone cord between the filter and your phone.
Please contact your service provider to obtain DSL filters and installation information.



Tip 3 of 9
Other electronic products (i.e., 802.11 wireless networking products, radios, radio towers, pager towers, cell phones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, personal computers, kitchen appliances and other cordless phones) can cause interference with your cordless phone. Try installing your phone as far away as possible from these types of electronic devices.


Tip 4 of 9
To get better reception, try moving the telephone base to higher location. Relocate telephone base near a window if using telephone outside.



Tip 5 of 9
Excessive background noise will cause a speakerphone to fade in and out. Try controlling the background noise by turning off any audio devices near the speakerphone. Also, try to avoid interrupting the person at the other end of the conversation while they are speaking. If background noise cannot be controlled, you should terminate speakerphone operation and return to normal handset mode.



Tip 6 of 9
Disconnect any other equipment that is connected in series with your phone. If you phone begins to perform normally, there is a compatability issue with your other equipment.



Tip 7 of 9
If your phone shares a power outlet with a modem, or if it is plugged in to a shared surge protector, try plugging the phone (or modem/surge protector) in at a different location. If this solves the problem, re-locate your phone or modem farther apart from one another, or use separate surge protectors.



Tip 8 of 9
There may be places within your environment that a cordless phone will not work well. If the problem only occurs in certain areas of your environment, there is nothing wrong with the phone. This is normal radio operation.



Tip 9 of 9
You may have a line problem. To test for a line problem, test your unit at another location such as your neighbor’s or relative’s house. If your unit works at another location, contact your local telephone company

How to do conference call


Depends on the phone system or service you are using. On a regular land-line you can do a 3-way call (if you have this option available to you through your service provider). To do this:
1. Call the first party.
2. Once the caller is on the line ask them to hold while to connect with the 2nd party.
3. Flash to dial tone. There may be a flash button on your phone or you may just press talk. In any case you should hear a quick "beep..beep..beep" then dial tone.
4. Now you can dial the 2nd party and click the flash (or talk) again to return to the 1st party and you both should hear the phone ringing for the 2nd party.


There's hundreds, if not thousands, of different phones, phone systems, and provider combinations that have different procedures for making conference calls. This is probably the most basic way. Hope this helps

Who do you make a conference call


While you are speaking to a party, all you have to do to add people is

1) Press the Conf button.

2) Dial the number for the new party.

3) Talk to the new party.

4) Press the Conf button again. You will hear a tone and then all parties will be able to hear all other parties.

To leave a conference call you just press the Conf button, listen for the tone, and hang up.

I have a GE 6.0 cell fusion phone, Model# 28128. It doesn't give a dial tone. So we cannot make or hear any calls. The incoming calls go to voicemail. I used to power off and on to solve this problem, but that temporary idea does not work. Please help.
Any ideas?

The phone rings,states the number calling but you can't talk to the caller. When you answer the phone, the person on the other end can hear you, but you can't hear anything. You can't get a dial tone when...


The switch that the handpiece activates is not working. Could be optical, magnetic or physical. It may need cleaning, adjusting or a wire connection repaired. Also check the curly cord and its connections between the handpiece and telephone.

No dial tone ,gets incoming, but cant hear anything, they cant hear me


Generic answer

You MUST get dial tone to talk or listen. Your base may ring but this may be unrelated to the telephone signal.

Check all wires and all settings. Are yoju certain your hand set is a member of your telephone group?

Dial tone is OK, but can't dial out
• Make sure the tone/pulse setting is programmed
correctly.
TONE/PULSE DIALING
1. Make sure the phone is OFF (not in TALK mode).
2. Use the CID/VOL left (-) or right (+) arrow button to
scroll to 1TONE or 2PULSE, or use the touch tone
pad on the handset to enter the desired setting. For
example, to choose TONE dialing, press the number 1
key. 1TONE is the default setting.
3. Press flash/program to store selection. You will hear a
confirmation tone.
