Every time I pick up my phone the dial tone sounds like a stutter for a few seconds then returns to normal. Why does it do that?

The stuttered dial tone is your message waiting indicator letting you know you have an unheard message. If you do not use the U-verse voicemail you need to enable your voicemail to delete any messages that are in your mailbox that you may not have been aware of then disable your voicemail again. For more information refer to Message Waiting Indicator

I finally got rid of my dial tone issue also after 2 months of beep, beep, beep , and finally a dial tone.
Thanks for the info. I thought I had a line problem.

I have made three phone calls and spent more than one hour on the phone with AT&T Tech Support to try to get rid of stutter dial tones on my two AT&T U-verse VOIP landlines, but it continues today. The stutter dial tone appeared by itself several weeks ago. I do not use, and have never used, AT&T U-verse voicemail. This is a minor annoyance, but it's getting pretty irritating. I'm now writing an Email message to AT&T (if I can find an address to which to send it) describing the situation and requesting that it be fixed.

@JHJHJH - The stutter dial tone indicates a Voice mail, including a welcome message for VM. Dial *98 & listen to the messages. If you do not want to use VM after that ask for it to be turned off.
