Are all phones on your line having this issue? Is it a GE system with expandable (multiple) phone handsets? Make sure you have touchtone service with your local phone company. If you are getting a dial tone but can't break dial tone when you press a button; do you hear the touch tone? If so, it may be the phone comany line. Provide as much detail as possible such as were the phomes working at first but then stopped or never worked at all.

    Determine if the problem is with one phone or all of the
    phones if there is more than one in the home. If another phone is working, unplug it and plug it in where
    the trouble phone was. If the new phone works, you know the problem is in the
    phone that was plugged in there. To check further, plug the dysfunctional phone
    into a working phone jack. It will not work there either. It is time to buy a
    new phone.


    If no phone in the house has a dial tone, unplug one and take it to the
    junction box. When you open the junction box, you will see a phone jack. Unplug
    the wire from the jack and plug in the phone using an extension cord to provide
    power if it is cordless. Does the phone have a dial tone now? If it does, it
    means that the problem is in the phone wiring to the house from the junction box. If it doesn’t, it is time
    to call the phone company because the problem is theirs.


    Another thing to check is the handset battery. A cordless phone goes dead
    when the battery does.

My Radio Shack Digital Telphone Answering Device TAD-3829 worked well for a little over a year. However a few days ago I discovered that I cannot receive incoming calls anymore; on the callers side there...


These 3829's do that often. After about 1 year or so of use, something fails internally, resulting in the symptom you see. Sometimes you get "Er" on the display, or the machine simply won't pick up and answer the call.
Bottom line - this model's not very good. Ditch it.

Problem with GE 29875 ANSWERING MACHINE


My reliable GE 29897GE2-A speakerphone w/ digital answering machine works perfect on my AT&T landline, BUT the answering machine does NOT work when connected to my Vonage VDV21-VD line (w/ voicemail and call forwarding disabled). I called Vonage Customer Support to inquire about this from their website:

"Can I use my own answering machine instead of Vonage server based voice mail?
If you wish, you CAN use your existing answering machine with Vonage. All you need to do is DISABLE Vonage’s server based voicemail system by logging into your account at www.vonage.com, and clicking on features. The voicemail menu will allow you to disable the entire Vonage voicemail system."

Vonage Customer Support was clueless. The only resolution offered was their suggestion that I might contact the manufacturer (GE-licensed Atlinks USA, Thomson)... lol, good luck with that!

So I installed a GE in-line "DSL Phone Line Filter" between the Vonage VDV21-VD and the GE 29897GE2-A, BUT the answering machine still does NOT work. It appears that Vonage is simply incompatible with the answering machine despite Vonage's bold claims to the contrary.

I have a Uniden phone 6,o with an answering machine. I would like to be able to retrieve my messages from a remote telphone.


Call your number from the remote phone. When the outgoig message is being played press 0 then the two digits you selected as PIN when you configured the answering machine. Your messages will be played to you.
For a more detailed information on your answering machine you should consult your phone user manual.

Wish to use the telephone company answering system how do I turn


There is a button marked "ANS ON/OFF" right on the base to control the answering machine function. The display shows "--" when answering is off, otherwise it shows the number of messages.

The manual says you can delete messages one at a time from the handset, or all at once or one at a time from the base.

You can download the manual from GE here:

Brother MFC8840D only 4 rings before fax pickup?


The TAD (TELPHONE ANSWERING DEVICE) must answer within four rings (the recommended setting is two rings). The MFC cannot hear CNG tones until the TAD has answered the call, and with four rings there are only 8 to 10 seconds of CNG tones left for the fax ?handshake?. message. do not recommend using the toll saver feature on your external answering machine if it exceeds five rings.
