Fix for message light blinking on ECA 25414. Many folks have changed phones or bought used phones to find the message light blinking on the phone especially on lines they don't have. That is what I found on used phones. Leave yourself a message on any phone. Now plug that line into the correct jack in the back for the line that is blinking in other words line 1 or 2 or 3 or 4.. Call the number from the line you plugged in and retieve and delete that message. Hang up and shortly the message light on the phone should go out.
I have 6 of these phones. No problem for a year or so, then one phone got the message light stuck on. Tried some online suggestions without success. Powering down etc. failed to fix it so I stuck a piece of tape over the led.
A couple of weeks ago line 2 failed (externally) and ATT sent a tech out who repaired it and also cleaned up the line. When the line came back, all 6 phones had the message light stuck on!
Talked with the tech here and with the ATT support and nothing worked. Eventually the tech here left as it was not a line fault - but he said he would leave the problem open.
That evening a young ATT guy called. He tried a number of different settings and changes - he was really determined! He called Kentucky and Minnesota and part of the advice was "give up and don't call the customer back"!
Finally he found a configuration option in the central office switch (exchange) for the line called CWMI (Call Waiting Message Indicator). Apparently this option was originally active but was changed when the local trunk was upgraded to fibre over the last year or so.
Once he enabled this option (we have call waiting and caller ID on call waiting on this line), the message lights on all the phones turned off and have worked normally since (10 days), including the one that was "broken" for over a year!
I really credit the tech with persistance on the issue.

With vmwi being on, you will get a periodic ring splash to let you know you have VM. You can adjust it here. I have mine set to 0.2 seconds as I like getting a whole house ring to let me know there is new VM, so I don't have to remember to look at the phone/light. Some set this to 0.0 seconds in order to get rid of the ring splash. I also set "Ring On No New VM:" to yes because I have an old caller-id box that needs a ring splash AFTER retrieving VM in order to clear its message waiting light. Newer stuff generally doesn't need this.
You would need to turn off provisioning or your changes will go back to provisioned settings every hour. After you are sure you like the new settings, you can send a ticket to get the settings changed in the provisioned file at VT.

Go into a new text message and hit the "send to" option.Scroll down to the first name above the line and hit the "options" button.Scroll down and select "Recent messages" and choose whoever from that list that you'd like to be your top 3.I actually just sent all three of mine a blank text, but when I went back to the "send to" list voila!MORE INFO:I tried all kinds of things to remove names from my top three recipients list.What ended up working was to send a text to multiple recipients at once.Two was enough. But it was important who I selected first. I sent a message to my wife and my friend.My wife's name got added back to my top three! Then I reversed and sent a message to my friend and to my wife. His name got added back!
Don't know about other models, but I just called RCA small business
phone support (800-511-3180) to find out how to clear the message light
indicator on my 25210 2-line cordless phone when it continues to blink
but there is no message.
All you have to do is hold down the delete button for a few seconds and
it will clear. Hope this helps someone else from going batty!
