Question about AT&T 1475 Cordless Phone

Open Question

Voice mail program continues to flash message waiting; I do not have voice mail service with ATT any more; I have service with another phone company, but without voice mail set up. I can turn it off for a few minutes, but it starts up again. I used the menu where it says to clear voice mail. but that only stops it for a few minutes.

SOURCE: Re-set the password for voice mail

What a lucky guess :-) Glad to hear that helped.

The lady should also tell you how many used and available mailboxes you have. I believe they came in 10 20 and 40 box sized and 2 4 or 6 ports.

I forgot how to clear the stored voice mails


If you want to delete the actual voice mails, you have to go through your phone company (using their keypad commands) since voice mail is only accessible through your phone (but the voice mail messages are stored through your phone company provider).

Info from the Uniden DECT 6.0 6035 Manual:

Using the Voice Mail Service If you subscribe to a voice mail service, you can use your phone to access your voice mailbox. The new message LED on the handset ?ashes and VM appears in the handset display whenever you have messages waiting in yourvoice mailbox. When you subscribe to the service, your voice mail provider provides you with the access number and the required voice mail signaling tone. You can use your phonebook to store the access number.

Resetting the Voice Message Waiting Indicator

When you receive a new voice mail message, the new message LED on the top of the handset ?ashes and
appears in the handset display. In the event your message alert tone gets out of sync with your phone company's voice messaging system, you can reset back to its original "no messages waiting" state. To reset, press and hold [?nd hs] on the base for ?ve seconds. A beep sounds and the message alert tone is reset.

Here is the manual:

If this is a system-wide problem affecting all phones then the voice mail integration is not programmed correctly. If this problem is affecting only 1 phone, then the VM message waiting function is disabled on the user's voice mail account or the status of the user's message waiting light is out-of-synch with the VM controller (Light on when the system think's it's off and vice-versa). Contact your system support person or service company for further assistance.

Re-setting voice mail indicator

You have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system takes messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

We have a Uniden DECT1588 Series system that we have just purchased. We are connected to a Voice Mail Service through Bell. We can receive the messages from the answering service but the light on the hand...

OK. You have a phone set with an answering machine, yet you continue to pay MaBell for Voice-Mail. Is there any compelling reason. That was my feeling when I first read your question but I thought you might not like what I had to say, so I consulted the Uniden FAQ and here what they have to say.

If you Uniden phone has a digital answering machine, and you also have voice mail through your phone company, the message indicator light will not light up when you have a message in your voice mail system. We recommend you discontinue your voice mail and use the Uniden internal digital answering system.

CD445 voice message icon won't stop flashing

This feature is country dependent and may not
appear in some countries.
If you have subscribed to the voicemail service
from your local service provider, icon turns
on when you have a new message in your
mailbox. After you have accessed to all the new
messages, icon will turn off automatically. If
you find that the message waiting indication
cannot be turned off by the network, you can
still turn off the message waiting indication with
your phone by the following step :

In idle mode, if voice mail waiting icon is on,
long press the redial key to turn off the voice mail waiting
Once you choose to delete the message waiting
indication, all the other handsets registered to
the same base station will turn off the message
waiting indication accordingly.

New Message Light won't stop flashing

Don't know about other models, but I just called RCA small business phone support (800-511-3180) to find out how to clear the message light indicator on my 25210 2-line cordless phone when it continues to blink but there is no message.

All you have to do is hold down the delete button for a few seconds and it will clear. Hope this helps someone else from going batty!

Voice mail indicator light is always on

I recently changed my number and when I did, I received the same problem. It appears that AT&T didn't add the Message Indicator Light service to my new number. Once they did, the message light works!

Try calling your phone service provider and asking if they have a Message Indicator Light function.

GE model 25922 cordless phone (2 unit set) "new Voice Mail" reads out on phone, base unit charger continues to blink as a result. No way to clear it. Model does not have voice mail what is...

That blinking indicates a message in a third party voicemail (voicemail provided to you from your phone company), contact them as they may be charging you for a service you do not use.

If you need the manual here it is

The below is pasted from your manual

Charge/in use indicator on the base flashes
• Provided your phone company offers voice messaging service and you subscribe
to it, the charge/in use indicator on the base flashes when the phone is not in use
to indicate there is a message waiting. It stops flashing after the message has
been reviewed.

Hope this helps

"New Voice Mail" stuck on screen.

Hi, I have the same problem. I called the service provider, they left a voice message, which I accessed later and deleted from my voicemail box. This took care of it and I dont have that message on the screen now. I think you can just leave yourself a voice message and access it later and delete it. That should resolve it.
