You probably need to be more specific as to which tone is annoying :-)

The ON HOLD source is what the caller hears when he's put on hold. It can be adjusted in SYS programming to Tones, Music, or None.

The HELD REMINDER tone is what your phone does when you put a call on hold. It can be set for none to 180 seconds in 30 second increments (at least on a CICS).

The programming is done using a 7310 or better phone in system programming.

    The answer is still there. You have to get into System Programming **CONFIG. You probably need the SYSTEM COORDINATOR PLUS password or the Installer password. Then look under SYSTEM PROGRAMMING and FEATR settings.

    HELD REMINDER will show up.

    This works for xICS systems. I don't know if it translates to an 616/824 type system, but it should. You are turning the feature OFF to stop recalls (CHANGE toggles the selection from Yes to No).

Ge fourline telephone 29488GE2-A There are annoying loud beeps on other lines when one line is on hold. How do I get rid of it? You cannot talk on the lines until someone picks up the call that is placed...

The phone generates a low beep tone about once every 10 seconds for the person on hold. This lets them know that they were not hung up on but at the same time it is not needed if you have music like a typical office puts on the holding lines. I talked with the manufacturer and they told me that this feature can not be disabled through programming. There is however a on-hold aftermarket adapter that can be placed in front of the music system that will eliminate the tone (Invotel AudioImage SX4400EZ). The cost we paid for this device was about $200 which has a audio input and in/out plugs for all 4 lines. This aftermarket system is designed to replace the beeps with music you provide through the audio input.

Message light keeps blinking

I had this same problem and found this in the manual:

" If the handset still indicates there are
new messages even after you have
listened to new messages, turn it off
by pressing and holding {CLEAR}
until the handset beeps."

It worked!

On hold beep

Unfortunately the Beep is built into the phone itself. Other than throwing the phone away (seriously considered) you can add on hold music which at least plays sound and reduces, somewhat, the annoyance of the beep. You need to purchase a Skutch CK-7, which is an on hold music adapter that works on the phone. I do not sell them, so suggest you just google them on line. It is not great, but better than just the beep
