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.

SOURCE: How do you retrieve a voicemail from the vtech

Your phone does not have an internal answering machine/voicemail function. It only allows you to retrieve voicemail messages if you subscribe to voicemail service through your telephone service provider. Access and other features vary by telephone company and location, so you need to contact your phone company for specifics. The voicemail light on your phone lets you know if you have new messages on your phone company system. To disable this light if you do not subscribe to this service:
- Press PROG
- Use the up/down arrow keys to select CLR VOICEMAIL
- Press SELECT. The screen displays CLEAR? and YES flashes.
- Press SELECT to confirm. You will hear a confirmation tone.

If theres a play, play message, or voice mail button on the base/main charger, try that.
Or maybe your phone service has its own voice mail, in which case, try dialing your own phone number.

your service provider might come with voice mail system, you need to log on to your provider website and disable the voice mail or you can setup your provider voice mail to 4, 6 sound and your Digital Cordless to 2 sound before the voice mail pick up and you will see the difference.

How do I set up voice mail? and how do I fix the caller ID to work? I have vtech 5.8Ghz ia5824, Thanks


The 5824 is not an answering machine.

From the manual:
Your phone is designed to work with most local and regional telephone service provider's voice messaging systems, providing alerts on both the handset and telephone base when new messages come in.
Voice messaging is a subscription service, available through most service providers, for a fee. Contact your local telephone company for more information.

Can I use cordless phone answering machine even if I have voicema


You do not have to cancel the phone company voice mail service. You need to change the number of rings the phone uses to answer the voice mail.

For example, if the telephone company voice mail answers if 4 rings, set the telephone answering machine to answer in 3 rings or less.

Good luck.
