I have a set of GE cordless phones (model# 25841GE3-A). Whenever I try to scroll through the caller ID list OR if I start dialing a number before pressing "Talk", I get this stupid message, "MSG WAITING OFF/ON" (either OFF or ON). Apparently it's a visual call waiting indicator that lets me know if I have voice mail or not. It is NEVER helpful, only annoying, because I have to wait several seconds before starting all over again with whatever I was dialing.
Is there any way to turn this off? I've heard that it may even be my voice mail provider's fault (TWC), but they don't even know about it. Help.

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.
Some phones are not equiped to pick up call waiting caller id. check the box or look up your model number on the uniden site. The call waiting caller id only shows up on the phone that is in use at the time of the call.
How to get the caller ID to work on the additional GE DECT phone handsets. You must follow these steps in the exact order :
#1 - unplug the base phone
#2 - unplug the telephone line from the base phone
#3 - remove the battery packs from the phones
#4 - wait 10 minutes. reverse the order when assembling. Put battery packs in phones, put the telephone line back in the base phone and lastly plug all phones back in.
It takes about another 10 minutes after that before all phone handsets start recognizing caller ID.
