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.
