How do I know which phones will display that you have messages?

How do I know which phones will display that you have messages?

I read on the instructions that when you have a new voicemail when you pick up your handset you will get a studder tone, and if you have a compatible handset it will show that you have messages on the display. I am shopping for a phone that will do this, and don't see that listed as a feature on any of the new phones. Any help on locating phones that will show when I have a voice mail with digital voice?

Re: How do I know which phones will display that you have messages?

You need to look for phones with MWI - message waiting indicator that works with the FSK protocol.

 

A quick search on AT&T's home phone site shows 2 cordless and 4 wired phones having visual MWI.

 

Another brand of phones with MWI is HERE
