Question about GE 28111 Cordless Phone

Caller ID disappearing

I called GE and was told to "unplug adapter, unplug phone line from wall jack, remove batteries from headsets, and leave unplugged for 15 min then replug in reverse order". I did this but it didn't work. I called back and they told me to buy new phones. My phones are 18 mths old. My biggest concern is getting my stored numbers out of the phone. They are numbers I don't have any place else. Can you help???

    In case you're interested, I contacted Thomson and complained about this (what I consider a defect) problem. After a few emails and phone calls, they agreed to replace the phones. I had to post $50 on a credit card to insure that I'd return the defective phones. I did return the phones and the $50 wasn't charged on my credit card. The new set stinks; I'd rather have the old set with a clear display. The new one displays the length of a call as each call is ended. I can't turn this off. I can't instantly redial another number, I have to wait for the display to disappear. There's also an issue with the volume. Thomson/GE products are off my list for good.

    Got a new land phone subscription from Comcast. My GE telephone had already been plugged in for about 3 months (never unplugged the phones). I noticed when Comcast had left, I couldn't read the names or numbers on the Caller ID. I also have the GE 28111 Twin Cordless Phone set. Please help! Thank you!

My panasonic KX-TG5000 phone headsets cannot make or recieve outgoing calls and the intercom function is gargly.


You need to reset the menu once again as it is possible that the phone had hung up as there was LINE PROBLEMS . Once this was reset the CLIP facility came back. So if you can once again remove power battery and keep aside to reset , then start all over to set up the base and slave units to MESH , the intercom and line facility must work.
You can remove the battery from the slave remote units to reset.

The corded phone with caller id rings during the night even though it is unplugged from the wall jack.


Phone may have shorted wiring, causing it to draw power from caller id batteries, thus ringing.

Need to connect phone and fax machine to one phone jack


You have the wrong adapter probably. Most common types are single line splitters and will not work like you want. They only split line one and 2 gets blocked out as they only have 2 copper connector on the plug centered to get line 1 only. If you want to use an adapter you will need a 2 line splitter like this one:http://www.trianglecables.com/tellinsplitl.html
A simpler solution is to plug your fax into your phone. On top of your phone are multiple jacks labeled L1/L2, L2 only or L2/data. Plug your phone into the wall using the L1/L2 jack then plug your fax into the L2 jack and this will work fine and still allow you use of line 2 on your phone. If you don't want to hear the ring then set your fax machine to auto answer. Hope this helps you.

CALLER ID


I just got off the phone with a GE rep, they said to unplug all phones from the wall for 15 minutes, then remove the batteries and put them back in the opposite way they came out. That will reset the system and fix the problem.

If it does not fix it, you'd need to purchase new phones.

GE MODEL 28112 DECT 6.0 CORDLESS PHONE


I contacted GE today and they told me how to get the caller ID to work on the additional handsets. You must follow these steps in the exact order given.

#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 phones start recognizing caller ID but it now works fine.

Caller Id


Try changing the cord between the base unit and the phone jack. Some phones are pretty fussy about this, and when they are, it's usually the caller ID information that gets clobbered. Alternatively, try attaching the base unit to a different phone jack - preferably the jack with the shortest wiring run to where the phone service comes into your home.

"New Voice Mail" stuck on screen.


Called GE. Here's what's happening (at least with my phone). I use VONAGE as a carrier. VONAGE's package includes voicemail. I have my VONAGE voicemail account set up to take any call that comes in if the answering machine on my GE phone does not pick up -- for instance if I'm on the phone and I do not "flash" over to the incoming call, that caller will eventually be sent to my VONAGE voicemail where they can leave a message. (Otherwise I would either take the call, or, if not already in use, the GE phone/answering system1.gif would simpy take the message.) This GE phone is commucating with my VONAGE account and letting me know that I have a mesage in my VONAGE account voicemail. All I have to do is either go online and delete the messages (after listening to them of course) and refresh the page. Once the messsages are deleted, the carrier lets my phone know the messages are gone and the NEW VOICE MAIL prompt on the handset disappears. I suppose I can do it by listening to the messages by calling in and deleting through the touch pad on the phone as well.
