We recently switched our home phone service from Vonage to RCN to take advantage of their phone, internet and TV bundle. With Vonage, our GE DECT 6 cordless phone handsets would light up when we got a voice mail. With RCN phone service the phones don't light up anymore. Vonage used a Motorola phone adapter box that connected to our NETGEAR router. RCN phone service uses an ARRIS internet and phone modem that connects to the router. Does anyone know of a way to enable the VMWI feature with RCN? When I asked RCN, they were clueless to what I was talking about. Thanks!

Do you get the "stutter tone" when you pick the handset up?
