Extension on VG248 gives warbly double attempt before real dial tone

Analog line on VG248 for fax. Fax machine died. Checked dial tone and fax machine. Fax machine was indeed faulty. But dial tone was weird when checked with regular analog phone. Gives two initial warbly false starts and then gives real dial tone. [Not a real stutter like old systems did to anounce message waiting.] Went straight to the closet and tested at the punch down. Same thing. Deleted the directory number in CCM and the VG248, re-added to a different port on a different VG248 terminating at different punchdown block. Same thing! Appears to be setup the same as all the other VG248 ports used for faxes. Once dial tone is supplied outbound calls can be placed!

What is the message waiting setting. Interupted dial tone is one option which plays a broken (warbly) dial tone when the phone first goes off hook.

So just moving the port to a different box will not clear it as it's been set for that line.

Try dialing the message waiting off code and see if it clears the dial tone, then look at what caused the message in the first place.

Possibly a misdialled number that matched the MWI on, or a rogue mailbox on unity that was configured by accident.
