SOURCE: how do I turn off message waiting indicator light

The VMWI led will stay lit if you have voice mail service from your telephone service provider. A lot of providers will also give a broken or stutter dial tone when you first go off hook as an indication of messages waiting. If you hear a stutter dial tone when you first go off hook, you will need to contact your telephone service provider. If not, you can try a simple reset on the base unit, just unplug it from teh AC adapter for about 5 minutes and then plug it back in.

SOURCE: The VM indicator displays on my handset but there are no messages

I saw that someone else posted this solution and it worked for me. Unplug the power on the base unit and then reconnect the power while holding the "find hs" button. I just did this and it fixed my blinking light problem.

SOURCE: When I get ready to dial, phone beeps 3 times

You must have an answering service from your phone company, and probably don't know about it. Try dialing your own # and wait for the prompts.

SOURCE: Has new battery, but no dial-tone,

Replacing the battery reset the phone to the factory defaults, which means you'll have to restore the connection to the base in Menu-Setup

A red light is flashing in the corner of the handset. How do i shut it off?


If your charge light is flashing and you have no messages on your answering system, you may have voicemail. Voicemail is provided by your telephone company and they would be able to assist you with retrieving those messages.

Once you have listened to the new messages, the blinking light will stop. You may also be hearing a stutter tone before your dial tone when turning on your handset. This is also indicating you have a new voicemail message.

My phone dialtone is intermittent - how can I return it to normal. It was disengaged earlier and calls sent to mobile. The problem is now sorted but my landline phone is still intermittent.


Usually the dial tone Beep Beep Beep means that you have a voice mail. This is a service or feature that your phone company provides. Sometimes it just a matter of dialing your home number from your home phone and it will prompt you to listen to or erase your messages. If this is not the case, call your phone company and ask them about the feature.

I have 2 problems. 1. The orange message light will not stop flashing no matter what I do. 2. Some how the system was switched from touch tone to dial tone. I can't seem to that switched either.


Resetting the voice message waiting indicator
When you receive a new voice mail message, the new message LED on the top of the handset flashes. In the event your message waiting light gets out of sync with your phone company's
voice messaging system, you can manually reset it back to the "No messages waiting" state.
1. Press and hold FiND on the base for five seconds.
Note: The handsets connected to the base will start to beep, however, keep pressing for five seconds.
2. A beep sounds and the message alert tone is reset.
Changing the dial mode
Your phone can communicate with the telephone network in two different ways: tone dialing or pulse dialing. These days, most base networks use a method called tone dialing, so your phone comes programmed for tone dialing. If your phone company uses pulse dialing, you will need to change your phone's dial mode. If you don't get a dial tone or can't connect to the telephone network, please follow the steps below to modify your phone's settings:
1. Press MENU/SELECT.
2. Select the Global Setup menu, and then the Dial Mode submenu.
3. Scroll to highlight Pulse.
4. Press MENU/SELECT. You will hear a confirmation tone.
If you ever need to change the dial mode back to tone dialing, follow the same procedure, but select Tone in step 3.

Finally for future ease of use, here is a link to the user manual were I copied the above information from:

Our phone says that we have a "message waiting" but we cannot access it. It says in our directions that we would have needed to set up a message system with another company which is something...


Your phone service provider is sending a signal on your phone line that is activating the message waiting on your phone. Likewise the beep-beep-beep you hear is called stutter dail tone which is sent by your phone service provider to indicate that you have a message in voicemail for phones that do not have message waiting or message waiting light ability. To cancel the message indicators, you'll need to call your phone service provider customer support and have them disable voicemail. Nowadays, voicemail service is often automatically added by service providers, especailly if you have recently changed service providers or your service provider has upgraded their switch equipment.

To change the greeting you need to either pick up the phone or press speaker phone then dial *38 then 1 then you will hear a beep/call tone. When you hear that tone record your message/greeting. Once you are finished press the auto dial/store button. If your are satisfied with that message hang up or press speaker phone again to end the call. If you would like to clear the message, then right after you hit auto dial/store you will hear a beep/call tone press 0 to clear or 1 to rerecord.

VS205 what does the flashing mail sign mean?


If you subscribe to call answer service with your phone company, a mail indicator might coincide with a stuttering dial tone, to indicate a message waiting. If on the Bell Canada network, dial *98 to check your voicemail. Once all new messages have been listened to, the dial tone will stop stuttering, and the indicator will hopefully follow suit.
