Customer Question

I have the GE Model 27909 Dect6.0. Is there a way to turn off the ringer but still have the answering machine pick up calls? When I have turned the ringer off according to instructions, the answering machine no longer picks up calls.

Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

Is the issue that it really doesn't pick up at all (can you test this by calling yourself from an outside line) or is it that it may be picking up and taking the message but just isn't playing it out loud (call screen)?
