Re: voice mail is full do not know how to empty it

Many people confuse voice mail with answering machines. Most of the time if you have voicemail that is provided by your phone company you will hear a stuttered dial tone when you pic up the reciever. If this is what you hear you should call the service provider and they will explain how to retreive your messages and delete the old ones. Are you able to listen to you messages? If you have voice mail, you do not need the answering machine turned on on your phone.

Cant turn off voice mail

It is crucial to understand that Voice Mail is a
service sometimes offered by the telephone
service provider (whom we used to call "the
phone company"). This Voice Mail is totally
different from the messages we can record &
manage with an Answering Machine System.

Turning off the Voice Mail is a function managed
by the service provider's methods & procedures
and is not specific to the phone instrument itself.

AT&T, GE, Uniden, VTech cordless phones all
include an indicator light or screen display
for alerting "Voice Mail Waiting". Usually the alert
indicator is cleared (turned off) when the user calls
the prescribed telephone number and retrieves
those stored Voice Mails, but not always.

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".

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
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!

Call your telephone service provider and ask them
to explain how to manage their "voice mail features".

How to empty my mail box

Here's a possible solution I found with a search engine:

I believe your callers MAY be reaching a "Voice Mail" system that is part of your phone service - from whatever service provider you have.

To confirm that this is true, simply disconnect the main base unit from the phone cord and then call your home number from another phone (such as a cell phone). If you still hear that "mailbox full" announcement, then you have confirmed that there is some kind of voice mail system active - and full - on your home phone number.

So what that means is that you will need to contact your service provider and get the official instructions on how to access that system - to listen to and delete any messages that are there. Each service provider has different procedures, but you can often call your own number - from your home phone - and get straight into the system. Once connected, there should be "speech menu" that will guide you through the messages and how to delete them.

Also, you may want to configure or disable this voice mail system so that the Uniden has a chance to answer calls while you are away. This usually involves either setting the number of rings on each system so that your Uniden can answer first, by having a lower number of rings than the voice mail system.

There may be other steps needed IF this voice mail issue is not the problem.

How do I retrieve voice mail messages from my uniden dect 6.0?

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 flashes and appears in the handset display whenever you have messages waiting in your
voice 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

Msg light

I need more information. Your phone can be connected to one of many different Toshiba phone systems and you can also have different voice mail systems. I'm assuming you are talking about voice mail messages.

Can you verify that this is happening only on your phone? If you swap phones with another station does the light start to work? It's rare, but the light itself may be the problem.

Does this same thing happen to anyone else? Is the voice mail not turning on any message waiting lights? or is it working for others?

Not knowing all the details, you could try emptying all messages including saved messages. Then try to leave yourself a test message.

If you know how, you could have your mailbox deleted and re-created. This would need administrative rights to voice mail programming.

Most voice mails have an option to activate the MSG light or not when a new message arrives. Your's could have been turned off by mistake or glitch.
