I too experienced the same darn thing. I called my phone company and they told me that the phone base is located too close to my internet???? I dont have another phone jack so I can not test what they have said. Try to move the base to the opposite side of the house if you can far away from any internet connection you might have and see if that does it. Let me know. Good Luck.

What type of beeping are you hearing? If you are hearing a beep every seven seconds from a handset, the solution is to recharge the battery. If the battery won't hold a charge, then replace the battery with a 5-2721 Nickel-metal Hydride battery.
The handsets can also beep for about 2 minutes if another handset or the base pages them. This is a locator tone. Just press the Talk/Call Back button or the Tone/Exit button on each handset.
I see the same thing and it appears that this is the way it works. Without the landline you will get the beeps but can still make and recv calls. After the beeps, dial #1#phone-number#, and it will call that number. Guess that is what they mean when say works without landline.
Please contact GE. I did and was told that they don't have reports of this being a problem. We need to make them aware of this (maybe we'll get lucky and they'll issue a recall). However, be warned that they do not have a toll free number for tech support or customer service, and my call took more than 20 minutes (310-953-9028).
If the phone is still under warranty, which mine is, they will send a replacement. I was given two options for replacement-
(1) Send my phone to them, at my expense, and they will send a replacement. Turn-around is 4-6 weeks! I can’t wait that long.This phone is used in a home office.I took option 2.
(2) Use a credit card for a temporary payment hold. They will send a replacement phone, which I should receive in 5-7 days, and a return label for the bad phone. Once I receive the replacement, I need to return the bad phone within 14 days and they will remove the credit card hold.
In memory block 4-1 for the extension's port, The Lkey for the CO line is lit green for immediate ringing, red for delayed ringing, and off for no ringing.
In memory block 1-1-77 you enter the CO's delayed ringing timer in seconds.
I wouldn't try and deal with seperating into tenants.
What I would suggest is in 4-19 restrict outbound trunk access (corresponding Lkey for CO line is lit to restrict)
Stations 1-4 would not be allowed to dial out on CO lines 5-6
Stations 5-6 would not be allowed to dial out on CO lines 1-4
This way Company A is not tying up Company B's CO lines for outbound calls and vice-versa.
I just called GE/Thomson tech support (1-800-720-2094). GE cordless phones do not allow users to pick up an additional extension so that two people in the house can speak with a caller. He explained that it was for privacy. I will be taking back my system today. :(
That beep means that you have another call coming in. If you want to take the other call you can tell your first caller to hold then push the hang up button one time and say hello. Now you will be speaking to caller number two. To return to caller one just push the hang up button a second time.
