I can't figure out how to find out when someone leaves a voice mail message. When I get indicator of voice mail, I retrieve it but all it says is: ".. you have one new message" and then it plays the voice mail...

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!
This can usually be fixed by calling the phone number that the voice mail indicator light is flashing on from a different phone number. Leave a voice mail message and then go into the voice mail and delete the message that you just left. The indicator light should then go out.
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.
This feature is country dependent and may not appear in some countries. If you have subscribed to the voicemail service from your local service provider, icon turns on when you have a new message in your mailbox. After you have accessed to all the new messages, icon will turn off automatically. If you find that the message waiting indication cannot be turned off by the network, you can still turn off the message waiting indication with your phone by the following step :
In idle mode, if voice mail waiting icon is on, long press the redial key to turn off the voice mail waiting icon. Once you choose to delete the message waiting indication, all the other handsets registered to the same base station will turn off the message waiting indication accordingly.
You probably have already figured out this problem by now. This phone does not have message capability. It only indicates if you have voice mail with your phone company voice mail service such as Southwestern Bell Call Notes. You just need to sign in to your voice mail service and change your message.
I looked at the manual for this phone and there is no indicator that will work with a phone company voice mail. Here is the link http://www.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/9918a1f6-b60a-6214-4190-378efa0f8de1.pdf. I would suggest changing your AT&T voice mail to a Voice Mail to Email service like All Call Technologies. Your messages are sent to your email as MP3 audio attachments that you listen to on your computer. This way even if your lines are busy you can listen to your messages.
On the phone not ringing, just push the volume up button while the phone is not in use, that should adjust the ringer volume. As for the message saying that calls are being routed to an automatic message sertvice, that sounds like a voice mail offering from your service provider, not the phone. Uniden phones have a default greeting that says "Hello, no one is availible to take your call, please leave a message after the tone" Contact your service provider and find out if you have voice mail service on your line. If you do and want to use the answering machine on your phone, you will need the service provider to allow for more rings before the voice mail service takes the call.
Thanks for the opportunity to help with your problem. If you also have voice mail through your phone service provider, it's possible that while you are on the phone, the incoming call is "waiting" (meaning you are hearing a beep while you are still talking assuming you have call waiting). If you don't pick up the incoming call, your caller will hear your "voice mail" message and leave a message. However, your answering machine will not indicate that you have a message.
