Is there a visual way to see I have msgs?

Is there a visual way to see I have msgs?

I newly switched to comcast phone service. Previously I had an answering machine that would blink if I had messages. Now messages bypass the answering machine and go to the comcast voicemail. Is there way I can know visually if I have messages? Or do I always have call the *99 to know?

There are some telephones with MWI indicators built into them, I have two  that blink red when there is a voice mail.

 

Look for phones with message waiting indicator that supports FSK protocol. The phones I have are ATT and Walker that work well.

 

Also remember, when there is a message the dial tone will be studdering, so no need to check by dialing *99.

I have been using V-tech wireless phones for years with voicemail waiting indicators with no problems.
