Hear fast beeps when picking up phone

Hear fast beeps when picking up phone

Whenever I pick up the phone receiver I hear a series of fast beeps.  I was told that that means I have voice messages.  When I check my voice mail I do not have any messages but I get the fast beeps anyway.  I called comcast and was told that indicates that my phone is working properly and is normal.  I don't think so.  What are these fast beeps and how do I get rid of them.

Re: Hear fast beeps when picking up phone

As you indicated the beeps are notification of voice mail on system.  Since you have no voice messages it is a phantom voice mail.


Try leaving a voice mail on the system, listening to it and then deleting it to see if will clear the notification from the line.
