    We-ve had the same problem for months. GE Tech Support said to do a hard reset of the system (unplugging from wall and phone line and disconnecting battery) and letting system sit for 15 minutes before re-connecting however that didn't do a thing!

    Sherry24,



    Thanks for trying. I don't have vmail activated so therefore, no vmail to fetch. Part of why this is so frustrating.

Did you pick up your voice mail message?

    It is odd that the light would continue to flash. Just to clarify, are you saying that your "telephone company" never collects messages for you?

    In my case, I had the problem because I didn't pick up the messages from the telephone company from the portable base handset.

    Picking messages up from any other telephone didn't work, so I had someone call me to leave another message and then picked it up with the portable phone on the base unit. That stopped the flashing.

How do I set up voice mail for my uniden 6.0 without answering system


If you do not have an answering system (answering machine) on the phone, you need to purchase a answering machine or contact your telephone service provider to get Voice Mail service from them. (Most charge $3-5 per month for voice mail.) The provider will tell you what number to call to set up a voice mail message and access messages.

I hope this helps.

(for most Uniden systems with the answering system, you need to turn it on and then access the system from the handset to set the out-going message and length of incoming messages allowed.)

Cannot clear message on handset that says I have a voice message.


I resolved the problem but I'm not 100% sure of how I did it. If it happens again I'll try it again. I left the answering machine OFF so the Voice Mail would take any messages. A friend phoned and left a message in the VOICE MAIL, I knew this because of the broken dial tone when I went to make a call. When I erased his message the 'New Voice Message' displayed on the handset disappeared. I figure a previous caller hung up just after the voice mail picked up. It was not long enough so it did not register in the voice mail but somehow registered on the GE phone. Since there wasn't anything registered in the VOICE MAIL to erase the message was 'stuck' on the handset display. As soon as there was a message registered in the VOICE MAIL that could be erased it also cleared the message on the handset.

As i mentioned, if it happens again I'll try it to see if it works, until then I am not going to tempt fate.

New Voice Mail flashing light


press "mute" key to access menu, press the up or down arrow key labeled "caller ID- volume" until you get to "handset setup", press the "mute" key again, press the down or up arrow until you have "defaultsetting" selected, press "mute" key, press "1", then press "mute" once more. At this point your handset will reset clearing the indicator for all the handsets. I've had to do this twice on my phones and it worked every time.

New Voice Mail flashing light


What worked for me was to call my phone from another phone and leave myself a voicemail. I then went in and retrieved and deleted that voicemail. Once I hung up from my voicemail service my handsets reset about 10 seconds later.

I hope this helps!
