Question about GE Spacemaker 26976 Cordless Phone
I have not had this unit long, and really like it, but suddenly I can't answering the phone when it rings.
I hear it ring, and people leave messages, but I can't get a dial tone or pick up a call. Everything else works fine. When I touch "speaker," I can hear a dial tone, but that's as far as I get. I just bought a new battery, even though the unit is only several months old, and so far that does not seem to solve the problem. The red light is on, indicating the battery is charging, but I still have the above-mentioned problems.
My phone company has been here and there are no problems with the phone line.
Any suggestions? Can I buy a replacement phone? Thanks so much for answering this email.
I would pack it and send it to GE for repair replacement as defective

I doubt it's the battery. As I understand it the base works fine and the problem is only with a cordless phone. Are you using an external charger stand for the cordless handset? These phones need to be registered to the base unit. That is usually done by installing the cordless phone in the base unit but you may need to do that shortly after insalling the battery or you could have a register button or setting.

the voicemail ring count has to be setup on your phone line thru your voicemail menu,and has nothing to do with the answering machine. if you don't want the answering machine to pickup, just shut it off. follow the prompt's for your voicemail settings, there you'll be able to set the amount of rings you want.
hope this helps.

SOURCE: No dial tone
It seems you can receive the calls and dial the numbers, by clicking hand free key you will hear the tone. Regarding answering machine I wonder you activate it or not for activating the machine just click the On/Off key on the base or from the main menu on the hand set choose Voice Mail section then activate Answering Machine, in this section you have other options such as Ring Delay (for choosing the delay before Ans.Mach. pick up the phone), Announcements (playing and recording announcements) and Massage Length.

If you use Dsl as a internet provider make sure you have the filters on each phone. If you use cablevision and have a wireless connection make sure you chage the phone to a 5.2ghz because you might have the wireless router with the same ghz causing a coflict. This will also create loss. of internet connections then you use the phone
