    I recently purchased the GE 25942 phone with the two extra handsets. I let them charge for 16 hours per instructions. I cannot get but one handset to work at a time. The others show unavailable when trying to turn one on while one of the others is in use. Any suggestions?

    Use to work. Now no ring on remote handsets and when I try to dial out I get the messages unavailable. The base station phone works fine. Went thru the procedures as described in the manual. I note that the Transfer On/Off does not even show up in the setup menu.

Please be sure to put the extra handsets in the MAIN base station to register. They will not register in the small remote charger stations.

Let me know if that fixes the problem!

Are thee any Binatone handsets compatable as extra handset to add to Binatone symphony 3325 unable to get new handsets but main answering machine and handset are still working


with cordless phones the problem is that the hand sets have to be recognized by the base station ( paired) and unless you have the exact hand piece make and model this pairing and recognition will not happen
if you can get 2nd hand units for the 3325 base then the base will accept them ( any number of additions ) but if the hand piece is different it will not work
you you need extra hand pieces then it may be best to consider a new system where you can buy extra phones and chargers

Tip

Connecting extra handsets to main base


Call your phone, while it is ringing put your extra handsets on the main base. I did this and they started to ring when on the base and they worked after that. You may not need to call the main line, only put the extra handsets on the main base to get them connected but I didn't try this so I don't know.

All 3 handsets seem to be dead at same time. It seems odd that they would all go out at same time. Is it simply a battery issue? The answering machine part works fine.


Check the line using an old conventional plug in phone. You should always keep one for power cuts. Also, get someone to phone your number.

One a three handset system, the signal to all three are driven by the main unit, the bit with the answering system. Check that is plugged in to the mains wall socket and if it is, check for power at the socket. If that checks out, you need to check that little plug in power supply unit. Best way is with a test meter. If the lights are on on the unit and the answer machine works, then you know you have power at that unit, so you need to check the power supplies in the slave units.

My guess is that your line is dead to the house.

Programming old handsets to a new base


Cancel the old handsets registration at the previous base unit if desired.
For additional handsets, you must register each of them at the new base unit. Only one handset can be registered at a time. A handset will be assigned anextension number at registration.


Make sure the base unit and the other handsets are not being used. Program the same way as the extra handset you bought.

Registration must be completed within 1 minute.

Merging 2 siemens gigaset 4215 systems (one base with 2 phones + 2 phones)


If you're trying to get 5 handsets to work with one base, it won't work. The 4215 can only handle 4 handsets, the base handset plus 3.

When I had to replace the base of my 4 handset system, the base handset still worked. Therefore I had an extra handset which couldn't be used. So I decided to buy another base. Now I have 6 handsets which can be grouped 4,2 or 3,3.

OU might need to deregister the hand set first by holding down the red end (hang up key) and keep it down while holding the # key. If deregister wont work use base unavailable and yes, you are sure twice.

List the handset numbers of those working handsets
Using a WORKING handset follow these directions
Resetting Handsets
If you want to register the handset to a different base or
replace a handset with another one, you must first clear the
registration information from the base and the handset.
1. Press and hold [ ] and [#] for
at least 5 seconds, until the
SYSTEM RESET menu
appears.
2. Select the DEREGISTER HS
submenu. WHICH HANDSET?
appears in the display.
3. Move the cursor to select the handset ID to be de-registered
from the list, and then press the OK soft key. DEREGISTER HS
appears. CHOSE A NUMBER THAT IS NOT ONE OF YOUR WORKING HANDSETS
4. Move the cursor to select YES, and then press the OK soft key.
When ARE YOU SURE? appears, select YES. You will hear a
confirmation tone.
PUT THE HANDSET IN THE BASE CHARGER AND IT SHOULD REGISTER

Hope This Helps - It worked for me

Only one handset can be registered at a time.

When you register additional handset to the base, the handset ID will be assigned. 1) Before registering the extra handset, the battery pack must be charged for 15-20 hours. 2) Place the extra handset in the main base unit to begin registration. 3) While the handset is registering, Handset Registering will appear in the LCD. When Registration Complete is displayed, the handset has been registered to the base. If Registration Failed appears, please try these steps again.
