My Uniden phone started blinking with no obvious message to listen to & draining all my phones batteries. Evidently it started at 11:27 pm last night, I woke at 5 in the morning and saw the blinking. Turns out altho I do not have voice messaging enabled in my Vonage account (VOIP), Vonage had sent a robo call to me in it & activated the MWI on my phones. Nice!! After I went into the account and listened to it, the blinking stopped. I still don't have it enabled in the account. I expect you've solved your problem. I'm just posting this tip for the next poor bloke who has this problem as it may help.
If you have message bank ie, message service for a VOIP then the signal will continue to detect if there is a message or not..I have turned mine off entirely..i wasnt using it much and the message continually was annoying..if tech support cant help..and they usually wont for your phone service..you will need to find the IP address (if using VOIP) for the phone, log in to that, go to advanced admin setting...passwords are usually admin/admin and somewhere under supplementary services you may see WMI or VWMI serv or something to that effect -i can only go by what i have seen on my screen - others may be different...and i have selected them both to NO...but also check with ur line provider that msg bank/voicemail is turned off..and if these are selected to NO then the message flashing will disappear!
Had the same problem, turns out it was my Vonage service alerting me to a new message -- I had a Vonage voice mail. When I logged into my Vonage account and deleted my message, my "speaker button" stopped blinking
If you have a regular phone, then connect it directly to the Vonage phone router. Be sure and connect to the correct port on the router (mine has 2 ports, and I use both, but a single line subscriber would only hook to Line 1). See if you get a dial tone with the standard phone hooked up (we are testing that the Vonage is good.first, then we'll deal with the Uniden phone.). If not, what do the light's indicate on the Vonage router? Have you subscribed to Vonage? Do you have a cable between your router and the Vonage router?

With choppy audio and one-way audio, either party on the call hears the audio breaking up, or no audio at all. Dropped audio is when a call is in session and both parties are unable to hear each other.
From your Vonage account, there is a feature called the bandwidth saver. This feature controls the amount of bandwidth used for a phone call. Try adjusting the bandwidth saver to either medium or normal. After you adjust your settings, test and see if there is a difference in the audio quality. Please note that when you change bandwidth saver it could take a few minutes for the device to reboot and take the changes. From your Vonage account, there is a feature called the bandwidth saver.

Ensure that your Vonage device is at least four feet away from any other device.
Ensure your Vonage device is in a well ventilated area to keep from overheating.
Ensure no file sharing, P2P applications, or large downloads are running while you are using the phone. These activities can use up most of your bandwidth, leaving little left for your calls.
Connect your Vonage device directly to your cable / DSL modem, if it is not already. If this helps the audio quality, then the problem is occurring between the Vonage device and modem.
If your Vonage device connects to another router and not directly to your cable / DSL modem, try disabling any firewalls or SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) on that router. Click here to learn about firewalls and SPI.
If you wish not to disable your firewall, then you can port forward the Vonage traffic to the adapter. Click here to learn about port forwarding.
Wireless Routers and Cordless phones — If you have a wireless router and a cordless phone:
Ensure all wireless devices and cordless phone bases are at least four feet away from each other.
Ensure the land line has been disconnected in the Demarc box. Ensure the land line has been disconnected in the Demarc box.
Ensure there are no more than five phones connected through the house wiring. The signal fades as more phones are connected to house wiring.
Test with one phone directly connected to your Vonage device. If this fixes the issue, there may be a problem with your house wiring.
If you have made it through this checklist and you are still experiencing an audio problem, our first class customer service is available to assist you. Please have handy your account ID, phone number, name of your internet service provider (ISP), and model numbers for your Vonage device and any other devices in your network.
call your phone service and have them disconnect the voice mail and if they cant just remove that have them set there rings at like 9 since most phones only have up to 5 rings for the machine to answer.you will have to use there voice mail service to hear your message and then delete it but should be good after that. i have comcast and they said it would take 3 days to deactivate voice mail but told me how to get there so i can get rid of that flashing light, hope this helps you
Resetting the New Message LED
If the LED remains on after you’ve retrieved your messages, you may need to reset
the indicators. With the phone is in standby mode, press and hold find handset on
the base until the paging sound stops (about 5 seconds).
