Dialtone beeps 10 times before becoming solid

Tonight I discovered that when a phone is picked up, the dialtone beeps 10 times before the tone is solid.

Is there a reason for this?  Prior to tonight, the dialtone has been solid each time since the service was installed in July.

Thank you.

sounds like you received your first voice mail.  to get your voicemail pick up your phone and press *99.  it will walk you through the setup and then you should be able to check your message.
