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

can (and maybe cannot) do for you.
