Usually the dial tone Beep Beep Beep means that you have a voice mail. This is a service or feature that your phone company provides. Sometimes it just a matter of dialing your home number from your home phone and it will prompt you to listen to or erase your messages. If this is not the case, call your phone company and ask them about the feature.
The flashing message light may be telling you there is voice mail on your telephone line. If you have "home voice mail" or whatever your phone service provider calls their service, you're told of new message by a stutter dialtone. That is, when you pick up your phone to make a call, you hear two or three brief bursts of dialtone before it goes steady. Many new phone systems start flashing their message light when there are waiting messages so that you'll know about them if you don't pick up your phone. Follow whatever procedure your provider gives (usually you call a local access number) to pick up your messages, and that light should quit blinking.
At first I thought maybe a modem problem but the 3 beeps???? I'm wondering if someone didn't hit the "HOLD" button accidentally. Most of the phone that offer the Hold feature can only be reverted by hitting the Hold button again. I'm not sure if this is the case with your phone but it's worth a shot. However, If that's not the problem and you do have phone service via modem, try re-booting your modem.
I see the same thing and it appears that this is the way it works. Without the landline you will get the beeps but can still make and recv calls. After the beeps, dial #1#phone-number#, and it will call that number. Guess that is what they mean when say works without landline.
