AT&T Models EL522250 &E2717B

Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 3 years ago
Thank you for confirming.Please do a quick test for me:Pick up the phone, press on/talk, and listen for the dial tone. Do you hear a normal dial tone, or is it a fast tone or preceded by a few beeps?

the fast dial tone followed by a steady tone or hum.

Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 3 years ago
Thank you for confirming. That tone means that there are actual new voicemail messages waiting. The phone company provides that voicemail service.To clear the light, you need to dial in to the voicemail server to actually listen to and/or delete those messages.In most cases you can dial *98 or your home number, from the home line, and that will put you into the VM menu. While it is possible to just disable the VM indicator light, that is dangerous because you'll still have messages waiting and continue to get new ones that you would miss out on.
