Question about AT&T SL82418 1.9 GHz Quad 1-Line Cordless Phone

Open Question

I own a AT&T SL82418. My problem is that even though the voice mail is empty and shows "0", the voice mail light still blinks and the dial tone is the intermittent one indicating voice mail rather than the steady dial tone. I've unplugged it for several hours and it works OK until the first voice mail is left. I delete it, but the light still flashes. Also, not sure if related or not, but all (4) handsets have a down-arrow icon on the display. How to resolve???? Thanks....Jim

SOURCE: "searching" message even when handset on the base

Found the following in AT&Ts FAQs for your phone, I'll leave only what might be relevant: # Charge the handset for 12 hours. After the first charge, the battery will quick charge in only 8 hours. Re-cradle the handset nightly for recharging. The battery will not overcharge. # Connect telephone line from base to unit to modular telephone jack. If cord is already plugged in, unplug and reconnect at both ends. Also, you may want to try another cord from a working telephone. See the owner's manual under "Connecting to Phone Line." (you can get the manual here on the product page in case you lost it) # Try a working phone at the jack. If another phone has the same problem in that jack, the phone jack is defective. Good luck, hope you work it out

SOURCE: PHONE JUST A DIAL TONE?

Make sure your phone is in Tone and not Pulse dialing. To change it for your phone, just look in your manual. If you don't have one, I have included a link for you to d/l it.

I have an Idect Model 6201 (single Handset) The answer machine is empty but when you call the phone it states that "This Mail Box is Full up"....How do I empty the mail box


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
separate from the messages we can record &
manage with an Answering Machine System.

Managing the Voice Mail is a function done by
the service provider's methods & procedures
and is not specific to the cordless phone.

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

Good luck!

How do you know if you have a voice mail message


Yes, the was bothering me for some time. I think the indicator is a little green light that blinks in the extreme upper left hand portion of the phone...not on screen, above it....but the blinking light may indicate a missed call or a voice mail is present.

Try this. Go into your phone icon, press and hold '1' and listen to any open messages. Delete each. Next go into your Call Log and delete all call history. Now exit.There should be no green light flashing in the upper left hand corner of phone. You have just cleared everything.

Next call your phone but hang up before leaving a message. Note the blinking green light in the upper left hand corner apparently indicating you missed a call. Go into your Call Log. It will say one missed call. Exit the call log and note that the blinking light is now off. You have acknowleged the call in the call log so the light goes off when you exit.

Call the phone again. This time leave a message. Note the blinking light again. Go into your call log again. Note the missed call. It would be nice if there was an icon or something HERE that indicates if this call left a voice message....but there does not appear to be. Exit again. This time note that the light continues to blink even though you entered the call log and acknowleged the call. I believe it continues to blink because you have a voice message. Exit.

Go into the call log again. Delete the missed call from the call hsitory. Exit. The light still blinks, I believe still indicating a voice message.

Go to your phone icone. Press '1' to check messages, delete the message and exit. The blinking is now gone.

So it appears a blinking green light indicates a missed call. If it still blinks after exiting the call log, you have a voice message.

If someone figures something else out let me know because this stinks!

I can't log into my Nortel vm account


Change the administrator password by pressing Feature 985 dial 9 even though it is not listed as an option. The display will show Pswd: dial 73738767793. The display will show Reset pswd? Press YES. Now you can log into the voice mail system administrator using Feature 983 and the password 1020000 if you have 3 digit extension numbers. Add or delete the 0 between the 1 & 2 depending if you have 2 digit or 4 digit extension numbers.

Voice mail blinks & won't clear


There are messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This records messages when people call while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

I had this same problem with my dect 1480, searched for answers and couldn't find any that worked. I explored settings on the phone and found a solution. I went into Menu - global setup - VMWI reset. (Voice Mail Waiting Indicator) Fixed the problem immediately.

My light keeps blinking and i have no messages


My Uniden phone started blinking with no obvious message to listen to & draining all my phones batteries. Evidently it started at 11:27 pm last night, I woke at 5 in the morning and saw the blinking. Turns out altho I do not have voice messaging enabled in my Vonage account (VOIP), Vonage had sent a robo call to me in it & activated the MWI on my phones. Nice!! After I went into the account and listened to it, the blinking stopped. I still don't have it enabled in the account. I expect you've solved your problem. I'm just posting this tip for the next poor bloke who has this problem as it may help.

The base "charge/in use" light is blinking two blinks each time.


Called comcast (phone service provider) and requested that voicemail isn't activated until phone has rung 7 times. My answering machine is set for 5 rings.
