flashing red light won't turn off

the red blinking light on my phone indicating I have a message has been on for the past 2 years. Ever since I changed my phone line to an internet based line, the light won't stop blinking which wears down the battery quickly. Please explain how to turn this light off.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

After you listen to your messages, the message icon turns off. If it doesn't,

you can reset it: With the phone in standby, open the menu and select

Global Setup; select VMWI Reset, then select Yes.

The only way to temporarily clear the message envelope is to go into Global Setup and do a VMWI Reset. But the message envelope keeps coming back.

If you are on Telstra NBN the reason is they have put you on message service or voicemail

Phone them and cancel the service and all is good

This really drove me nuts and I could not find any correct answer....but there is always a reason so do not give up. I drove my wife nuts too but still did not give up.

Then put a different phone on the modem and no fix. So I knew where the problem lay. TELSTRA. Enjoy no red light folks

Just hold the FIND button on your base unit down until all phones stop beeping, about 5 seconds. That should do it!

I just had this issue for 3 weeks.  FInally contacted Comcast/Xfinity and through speaking with Technical Support I was able to get it resolved.  I asked if this happens again, what do I tell the Tech Support people to get it quickly resolved so I am not on the phone troubleshooting for an hour?  They told me to tell Tech Support that they need to REMOVE SCATTER TONE  This TOTALLY FIXED IT!!! WOOO HOOO!!!!
