Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Corded 29861GE2 Digital Answering System

Ideal for small offices or busy roommates, the GE 29861GE2 is a completely digital answering system containing three mailboxes. The call-screening speaker allows you to answer only the calls you want to; you can even set the precise number of rings before the machine picks up. With 30 minutes of memory, you won't worry about running out of space, and you can easily set a time limit for individual messages. Each incoming message automatically receives a time-date stamp, and simple controls offer the options of listening to only the new messages or listening to every message, along with deleting, saving, or skipping. Remote access allows you to check in while at work or on vacation, and with the addition of a 9-volt battery, the machine is able to save messages even through a power outage.

  • Digital Answerer with up to 30 Minutes Record Time and 2 Digital Outgoing Announcements: Better reliability. No tapes or tape decks to break, jam or wear out. Digital microchip provides instant playback of messages.
  • Three Message Mailboxes: Family members can receive messages in their own mailboxes. No need to listen to messages for others.
  • Digital Message Counter: Displays number of new messages received.
  • Auto Disconnect: Outgoing announcement automatically stops and resets when any phone in the house is answered.
  • Call Screening: Allows user to listen to caller leaving a message.
  • Message Scan: Allows quick review of incoming messages. Plays first five seconds of each message.
  • Ring-Select Switch with Toll Saver (2-8, TS): Gives user a choice of how many rings before answerer takes a call. Toll saver delays answering if there are no messages, so if you are calling long distance to check messages, you can hang up and avoid paying for the call.

The reason I bought this answering machine was so that I could delay for 6 rings before it would answer the phone. We need more time to get to the phone! It's great that it has multiple mailboxes also. There is one for me and one for my wife and one for people who don't know us (that's how we filter the junk messages!

If I could change two things I would:

1. I'd like a way to mount the machine on the wall. It is currently configured for desktop only.

2. The machines voice isn't always clear and understandable. I don't recommend this machine for those who have trouble hearing.

Other than those two things this is a great answering machine.

I really wanted a three mailbox machine and found this one. Had received good reviews so I was pretty sure it would work as expected. Disappointed with the item as it is very, very difficult to understand and the only way to delete a message is to play it and hit the delete button while the message is replaying (my previous machine had a button to delete all old messages which worked great).

I debated between a three mailbox machine and a four mailbox machine but this one took my vote hands down. It's perfect for us, the set up is easy and we are able to retrieve messages from other locations at the touch of a button. The messages stay on the machine after we retrieve them in case we missed something. When we get home, there they are. It's perfect for families with 3 members, each can have their own security code to retrieve their messages. It works well with our caller id as well. I would recommend this GE Digital Answering Machine to everyone.

This is the one I have owned since the 90s..there was a model made in the early 90s which I still have to this day. At first I didnt like the 3 mailboxes. But if you just leave a regular message it will go into the mail mailbox...easy playback, easy to set the date/time.
The only feature I didnt like is that if the power goes off, which mine does you lose the messages so Im looking for an updated GE that has a power saver.
After all these years its been on 24 hours a day since the early 90s and now its 2007, thats about 15 years worth of no problems and anyone in the house can play it back. That is the great feature, easy to play, delete. GE always had good ideas for simple useage.

Easy to set up and for people to start using right away.
Attractive, rounded design with gray-toned buttons arranged in a circle.
Flexible--use one mailbox or up to 3.
Works fine with phone/fax (in ths case Brother Personal Fax 275).
Also received several comments on how pleasant the female voice is that automatically answers calls until (or unless) you change it.

It does its job. The sound quality is not the very best, but it's good enough. For the price, it's a nice answering machine. What really surprised me is that if you make the outgoing message right, people WILL hit the number for the mailbox they want, so it's pretty much guaranteed that any messages in mailbox one (the default if the caller doesn't specify) will be junk.

The digital answering machine this machine replaced was a piece of junk compared to it. This one has multiple voice mail boxes and two outgoing messages you can switch between. The quality of the recording is good too. You can set how long a message the caller can leave, number of rings before the machine picks up and a security code if you pick up messages from the answering machine on the road. Now let's see how long it lasts.
