    My VMWI CONTINUES to flash - Display says New voice mail - but when I press flash/answerer (button) it says there are no messages. Please advise!!!! Thank you

  • Anonymous Feb 21, 2009

    I just purchased a 28821 DECT 6.0. I tested leaving a message. According to the manual, the VMWI is supposed to flash. But why would I have to pay for the service from my phone company if I'm using my own answering machine?

After exchanging the phone to the store for another identical phone, I got the same issue / same problem. After unplugging everything as noted by the 800# they suggested I contact my telephone service provider. I recently changed from AT&T to Comcast and found that voice mail service is included in my phone service at no additional charge. When I contacted Comcast and explained my situation (which I thought would have baffled her) she was not baffled. She knew exactly what I was talking about.

Hence....you can use the additional voice mail service provided by your telephone service in addition to your telephone unit or you can have your telephone service provider shut it off the service.

I was very pleased with Comcast's response and helpfulness. It just isn't explained clearly at all in the instruction manual that came with the phone. Shame on you!

I believe the VMWI is supposed to indicate that a telephone service provider's voicemail system has a message waiting. It's not an indication that the answering system built into the phone has a message. According to the manual, this needs support from the service provider. That would typically be an extra cost service, much like caller ID.

In other words, if you're not paying for this service every month, the feature on your phone won't do anything.

I don't think the handsets are supposed to indicate that, but the base unit has a panel where the number of calls answered is indicated.

We have a Uniden N32 Model XDECT7055. How do I remove the red flashing light on top of all the phones.


If that is the Voice Mail Waiting indicator light at the top of the handset and on the base, you need to press Menu on the base. Use the up/down arrows to select VMWI Reset. Press Menu again to select this sub-menu. Use the arrows to highlight Yes and press Menu again. You may need to contact your telephone company to make sure that the voice mail service is still compatible with the Frequency-Shift Keying message notification. Some broadband (particularly DSL) systems can cause telephone interference. Check with the broadband provider if you need a DSL filter (or similar item) to keep the interference from corrupting the VMWI information.

The procedure is on page 17 (19 of the PDF) of the manual for the Uniden XDECT7055. This is available here: https://www.uniden.com.au/resources_main/pdfs/XDECT_7055_3WP_OM.pdf .

I hope this helps.

My accessory handset wont stop flashing?


This sounds like the Voice Mail Waiting Indicator.

To manually reset (turn off) the alert indicator one
usually scrolls through the phone MENUs to find
a selection labled something like "VMWI Reset?"
and choose "Yes" or "Off".

Specifics vary by make and model... the model
number of your phone can be found on a small
sticker underneath the battery in the handset
(eg, CS6229).

Take this model number to www.manualslib.com
to download a free copy of the User's Manual
and learn the full details of what your phone
can (and maybe cannot) do for you.

Good luck!

Uniden dect 6.0 caller id light wiil not go out


I am not aware of any Uniden phone that has a "Caller ID" light. If you are talking about the small red LED on the top of the handset, that is a voice mail indicator and can be triggered by either a voice mail being held by your telephone service provider (Called Call Notes by some of the "bell" companies) or an unheard message on the telephones internal answering machine. Most of the time this is due to a voice mail on your service provider. If you don't think you have Voice Mail from your telephone service provider, call them and make sure, now days they include it with a bunch of other features without you ever asking for it. If you do not have voice mail through your telephone provider and there are no new messages on your answering machine, follow the Reset VMWI indicator procedures in your owners manual availible at http://www.uniden.com/index/manuals_results.cfm?cat+1
