I figured out that the blinking light is for message waiting, as in voicemail. That's odd, because we told our provider we didn't want their voice mail.
The part about not being able to answer incoming calls is associated with the light. When you have a voicemail message waiting to be answered, you provider indicates that by a stuttering dial tone for the first few seconds.
I knew all this from 13 years as a service tech for telecomm. Just didn't put 2 & 2 together because we are not supposed to have message waiting. A company doing what you asked them not to. Go figure.

As for this site, fixya.com, I am not happy. The service is advertised as FREE! But in order to get an answer I was told via email, from fixya, that I needed to upgrade to a premium account. That's BS and I'm not buying it.

If it's the message light then you have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

My phones are Uniden DECT 6.0 (digital answering system). Why does a little red light in the upper left corner of each handset keep blinking each 2 seconds?


If it doesn't, you can reset it: With the phone in standby, open the
menu and select Global Setup; select VMWI Reset, then select Yes.

Red blinking lights


Here are sample paragraphs from the user manual : hope it helps !

The new message LED on the handset flashes when you have new messages in your
answering system. The LED stops flashing when all new messages are played back.

3) To delete all messages, press delete messege in standby mode. Press delete
messege
again after the announcement "To delete all messages, press delete
again."
When you try to delete all messages without first listening to your new messages,
you hear several short beeps followed by an announcement "Please playback all
messages." This protects you from accidentally erasing messages you have not yet
reviewed.
Important:
When you press delete messege, you are permanently deleting the message. Once
deleted, the message cannot be replayed or retrieved.
