    Is this solution for a cell phone? You say that in your comments.
    This is a business phone that sits on the desk, has a corded receiver,
    a speakerphone, a regular deskphone keypad and 10 positions for
    fast dial numbers. Don't remember any option on the phone for call
    forwarding. More likely the solution involves dialing some sort of
    code and then the number to forward to.
    Please check your manual for this phone.

    This is a one line business phone on a desktop.

  • willd01gr Oct 15, 2010

    The answer that I received was for a Cell Phone whereas I specified that my model was a desktop business phone with 1 line coming in, a speaker phone, 10 speed dial positions and a corded handset. It's old and probably is not in production by GE any more. Can anyone help?

    No, thanks, have already found a solution on another website and applied for a
    refund on this one. Three "experts" and no useable responses? Don't think so!

TRANSFERRING A CALL TO ANOTHER STATION
1. With the caller on the line, press TRANSFER.
2. Within 5 seconds of pressing TRANSFER, press the 2-digit station
location button (01-16) or memory button where you wish to transfer the
call. The line's indicator blinks yellow until the party you are
transferring to picks up the call. Once picked up, the indicator will turn
solid red. The indicator on the receiving party's line will rapidly flash
yellow and ring at a different frequency until he or she picks up the call.
• If the transferred call has not been picked up at the other station
within 30 seconds, you will hear a beep at your station. The transfer
cancels, the line is put on hold, and the line indicator flashes green.
• If the party at the other station doesn't pick up the transferred call,
and you wish to attempt to transfer to another station, press the line
you want and repeat the transfer process.
• If the station number you pressed is not valid, you will hear an error
tone and the transfer cancels.
• If the party you pressed is in Do Not Disturb mode, DND shows on
the display. The transfer is cancelled and the call is put on hold.
• If the party's station is busy, BUSY shows on the display.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

    GE have a habit of stopping the manuals along with the model. Any way I'll take you to a site having similar manuals. Is that O.K?

Hello,

Go to settings on your phone, click on the phone option, it will display different option, select call forwarding or call divert, enter the number you forwarding the call to and press ok, you are done. follow the same procedure, when you get to call forwarding, you can select to cancel as you can no longer add a number.

Take care.

How can I setup forward call to my cel from VTECH CS6649-2


Call forwarding typically can redirect incoming calls to any other domestic telephone number, but the owner of the forwarded line must pay any toll charges for forwarded calls. Call forwarding is often enabled by dialing *72 followed by the telephone number to which calls should be forwarded. Once someone answers, call forwarding is in effect. If no one answers or the line is busy, the dialing sequence must be repeated to effect call forwarding. Call forwarding is disabled by dialing *73. This feature requires a subscription from the telephone company. Also available in some areas is Remote Access to call forwarding, which permit the control over call forwarding from telephones other than the subscriber's telephone. VOIP and cable telephone systems also often allow call forwarding to be set up and directed via their web portals. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Call_forwarding

You may download a copy of the manual at http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/IB/29490GE2_IB.pdf.

The 29490 isn't an answering machine. To set up the voicemail, please consult the documentation for whatever answering machine or voicemail system you have on your phone line.

Call forwarding is a service provided by your telephone company. With many systems, dial * 7 2, wait for a second dial tone, then dial the number to forward to. Answer that other phone to confirm. Dial * 7 3 to cancel. If these instructions don't work then contact your telephone company for their instructions regarding call forwarding.

How do you take out voicemail from the phone so call forwarding can be processed?


I'm not sure that you are phrasing the question correctly. How can I bypass the voice mail box would be a better explanation.

If you take out the voice mail box it will go to the main greeting. Call forwarding to voice mail is call forwarding being processed. Is there somewhere else you would like it to forward to?

If you are just trying to delete your mailbox then you need to know your system manager info. If you do email me at IsaiahJ1980@gmail.com and I can help you further.

Call Forwarding Options:

From Port 1

Find port 01 or Tel 01 by pressing feature 4 from the lowest extension # in your system. Once you have found port 01 dial either of the following:

Call Forward Busy No Answer

Speaker 45, enter the extension you want to forward i.e 103, enter the destination, another extension perhaps 107 and speaker.

Call Forward Busy No Answer to an outside #

Speaker 45, enter the extension you want to forward i.e 103, press 9 and enter the destination phone # and speaker.

To Cancel Call Forward BNA

From port 1: Speaker 46 and the extension #


Call Forward All

Speaker 47, 103, enter the destination extension 107 and speaker.
(You will notice the Feature light flashing after this operation)

Storing memory numbers


1 - Lift the receiver and get the dial tone.
2 - Hit 'Store'
3 - Enter the number you wish to store in the phone
4 - Hit the store button again
5 - Hit the memory button you wish to store the number into
6 - Hang up!

This should store the number wherever you want to put it. Remember if you want to store it in one of the 'lower' positions (second line of the memory index card) push the 'Shift' button before you push the memory button for that location.

Line 2 continually flashes on GE 29490GE2 Corded Phone


Does it flash when you try to fax? (Or) Does it flash and when you try to fax it shows busy? Your phone most likely has a line in use detection circuit so when a line is being used by another phone (or device) you will know to choose the other line. These detection circuits can sometimes be fooled, confused or even cause problems with other telepones.
