Message Waiting Indicator Your phone's message waiting indicator is either a light or special tone that alerts you when you have voice mail.
Occasionally, the message waiting indicator may be out of sync with your mailbox. In that case, the indicator light or tone is ON but there are no messages waiting, or the indicator light or tone is OFF when there are new messages waiting.
To get the message indicator back in sync
Save or delete all new messages
If the message indicator does not go out or stop within a few minutes, there may be a problem, and you should contact Verizon.
If the message indicator does go out or stop, call your own number and leave a message
Hang up and wait
If the indicator light or tone does not come on within a few minutes, there may be a problem, and you should contact the vender.
you have to log in to your account at the phone service provider and reset message waiting indicator. If you have a contract company managing your ip phone service, call them, and say you need the message indicator reset.

That is the message waiting indicator, it is telling you that your Call Notes (Or whatever your service provider calls it's voicemail) has a message waiting. If you do not have a message waiting, you can turn the light of by following these steps:
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 and
appears in the handset display. 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.
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.
A beep sounds and the message alert tone is reset.
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.
I have a jwin jt-p590 and I have no idea how to use the voicemail/answer machine it's equipped with. Is there some sort of button scheme I'm supposed to press. I threw away the manual to it. Sorry I don't have an answer for your problem, but you seem pretty witty from the answers I saw you give to other ppl. I'd really appreciate it if you could help me out.
