Question about Uniden Cordless Phone
I have moved and changed phone service to another carrier. I plugged in my GE cordless phone and the message light is blinking(probably because there were messages when it was unplugged frome the old house). I hasve tried pulling the battery and have had no success. How do I get the thing to stop blinking. I have no messages with my current phone service so I know that is not the problem.
You forgot to supply a model number, but is this a cordless with an answering machine or did the message light blink when you had messages from the phone company provided voice mail?
If it's the former, pressing the play button and/or holding down the ERASE button will make the messages disappear.
If it's the latter, here's where the fun begins. Message lamps are lit from a signal generated from the phone line. Stutter dial tone is usually the cause, and it could be just because you have a feature enabled. I think the cadence of the call forwarding dial tone is enough to set off MW, but I'm not there to hear it :-)
Try unplugging the phone completely, then plug it in without the outside line. I'm guessing the display will tell you there's no outside line, but what does the message waiting light do? Then plug in the line and see if it lights immediately or after some delay. It may test the line as soon as you plug it into the wall and be hearing the funny dial tone.
Comment back after you've done this.
