General Electric Mfg Telephone Complaint - Woes Of My Gen Elect Wall Telephone
-- I was searching for a plain phone to use at my residence; just a plain simple caller i. d. phone. I go to the K-Mart and (there were only a few offered over the more complex features) the clerk got this phone that states on the outside box "has caller i.d." I go home. Plug in the phone. No caller i. d. I had to go purchase 4 batteries (I could have purchased while out if the box had so instructed but DIDN'T, go back and install batteries. Guess what! No light-
can't see the number. Would it have been SO MUCH HARDER to have included a light???????? I paid $30.00 for the phone and the cord would barely
reach your ear.
Then getting to the i.d. portion, it's in Spanish more times then not. The controls must be super sensitive as while dialing, lots of times, it's like trying to dial on one of the old black dial phones(yes, I definitely remember those; they were better and more dependable then THIS ONE) I do not usually write and complain but honestly, I can't believe the name GE used to stand for dependability but this phone has changed my mind. I am also searching for the water heater that heats the water when you need it instead of storing it, but I'm afraid after the results of owning this phone that GE is not the company it used to be.
I've never been so amazed with a simple inexpensive phone to be such a aggravation but it has been ridiculous. The water heater will
cost more than the money I spent on the phone so I surely do not want to spend the extra money and then have to wrestle the TIME with an inferior product. I can't say enough about how disappointed and how much I hate this phone. All
the problems I've had, I just wanted you the mfg. to know. It is:
USG9HTE 10829581-A REN 1 0B HAC E 210704
77LF Thomsom, Inc. Made in China
The top name and brand is General Electric. It's what I bought by and what I'm disappointed by.

This was bought at K-Mart before they moved the store. It was not on sale, I paid the regular price asked on the bar code. Probably will not hear anything but if enough people vent and start buying products that work, it'll maybe slow down incompetence with companies like yours.
