Question about GE Lands Phones

1 Answer

I have Comcast on my phone & have had the phone answering taken off from them, however, I cannot put a message on my GE phone answering system. The "phone lady" answers saying we are unavailable at this time, please leave a message. When they try to leave a message the phone says our messages are full and hangs up. What do I need to do to get the phone message we put on - on the phone & get of the phone messages it says is there?

    I pulled up a GE answering machine/phone guide hopfully it matches up .The manual says that there should be a play/stop button thats used to listen to messages. Does your set have one?

    Erasing all the old messages can be done by pressing and holding down the erase button until the unit announces "messages erased".

    Recording a greeting is done by pressing and holding down the greeting button until the unit announces record your greeting after the tone, release the greeting button when finished recording.

Yes, it will automatically let you know when you have a voicemail. If it does not work, contact Comcast.

VMWI Indicator on Handset don't flash when I have a voice message.

I don't think the handsets are supposed to indicate that, but the base unit has a panel where the number of calls answered is indicated.

Voice mail

An alternative to this problem, i've got ...possibly its a COMCAST feature..

Call your own number which will activate the ansering option for COMCAST and then u can read ur messages. This will ge the NEW VOICE MAIL message off ur handset.

In that case i find the answering machine of the phone useless and shouldnt have put money for the same.

"new voice mail" display

call your phone service and have them disconnect the voice mail and if they cant just remove that have them set there rings at like 9 since most phones only have up to 5 rings for the machine to will have to use there voice mail service to hear your message and then delete it but should be good after that. i have comcast and they said it would take 3 days to deactivate voice mail but told me how to get there so i can get rid of that flashing light, hope this helps you

I had this problem too. I removed the voice messages from my service and the noise stopped. But, I'm sure you want a long term answer. Me too.
