Your telephone has separate indicators for two different types of voice messages: those let on its built-in answering system and those let on your service provider’s voicemail (fees may apply). Your telephone’s built-in answering system messages and voicemail messages are separate. Each alerts you to new messages differently.

  • If XX new messages displays on the handset and the message window on the telephone base lashes, there are new messages recorded on the built-in answering system. If you turn on Msg alert tone, the telephone base beeps every 10 seconds when there are new answering system messages. To listen to your message(s), press MENU/SELECT twice on the handset or press PLAY/STOP Play & Stop Icon on the telephone base.
  • If Message Icon and New voicemail display on the handset, your telephone service provider is indicating that it has new voicemail for you. To listen to your voicemail, dial an access number provided by your telephone service provider, followed by a security code or PIN.

Some service providers bundle or combine multiple services like voicemail and call waiting, so you may not be aware that you have voicemail. To check what services you have and how to access them, contact your telephone service provider.
You can use the telephone answering system and voicemail together by setting your built-in answering system to answer before voicemail answers. Refer to Using the answering system and voicemail together in the online user’s manual for instructions.
