disable voicemail indicator

Post by jmck407 » Sat Oct 30, 2010 1:41 pm

Is there a way to disable the flashing saved voice mail indicator on the telo when new messages are left in voicemail?

Thanks,

Listen to all new messages and it will turn off.

understood....to clarify, I would like to disable the new voice mail indicator, so it does not flash with or without listening to voice mail messages.

It can't be disabled.
Put a piece of black tape over the indicator or turn all of the indicators off.

Duct tape has many uses

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.

this answers my question...albeit not in the way I preferred.

the tape would probably keep it constantly "pressed", even with them all dimmed/off the indicator flashes when there are new voicemail messages.

I recently got a D-Link DAP-1522 wireless bridge so I can stream video to my TV

Image

When in bridge mode, the orange "bridge mode" icon blinks constantly; drove me nuts. I can handle blue or green but couldn't take orange blinking lights LOL

Luckily, I remembered this thread. :)

My answer was a little round felt pad :P They come in black too.
