Troubleshoot why your message waiting indicator remains on your phone

Last Updated: Nov 18, 2013

  1. Power your phone off, leave it off for 60 seconds, and then power it back on. Note: For Motorola Q phones, leave it turned off for 2 minutes.
  2. Access the Messaging menu in your phone and check for all types of messages including text, picture mail, premium messages, voice SMS, and instant messages/e-mail. View and save or delete all messages.
  3. Access your Voicemail mailbox. Play and then save or delete all messages.
  4. If the Message Waiting indicator doesn’t clear from the phone display, contact us.
