Once in a while my cordless phone's voicemail light starts flashing, the display shows a message is present in the answering machine, but there is no message. When I call my home number, I'm redirected to some voice mail system I know nothing about - the cordless phone rings but the answering machine never picks up. When I dial *99 I am asked to set up voicemail (which I don't want to do) and this clears the flashing light on the cordless phone.
This is an intermittent problem and is extremely annoying since I may be losing calls. What is going on here??? A few of my relatives (also using Comcast) have the same problem.
