Resetting the handset and base would probably do it (p49 of the User Guide). But that might be a pain if you have lots of contacts stored in the phone. If you do, it might be worth waiting to see if a less radical answer turns up.

Re: BT Freestyle 650 beeping when answer phone message is left

I found this post while searching, and then figured it out by reading around. Just in case anyone else needs this info:

 

This beep is called "message alert". On the BT Freestyle 650 (and perhaps other models), you have to press and hold the "backwards skip" button (just below Answer On/Off) on the base. After a couple of seconds, it will announce that "message alerts" have been turned off. See page 14 on the manual for more info.

 

Good luck!
