Dialtone beeps 10 times before becoming solid

Tonight I discovered that when a phone is picked up, the dialtone beeps 10 times before the tone is solid.

Is there a reason for this?  Prior to tonight, the dialtone has been solid each time since the service was installed in July.

Thank you.

Re: Dialtone beeps 10 times before becoming solid

sounds like you received your first voice mail.  to get your voicemail pick up your phone and press *99.  it will walk you through the setup and then you should be able to check your message.
