I think the button that turns the voicemail on and off for that phone is broken, but in any case, I have replaced the phone with one that works.
If you've left messages or otherwise been unable to reach me by phone, my apologies. Let me know if there's any still-current messages I might have missed-- I don't know if I can retrieve them from the semi-dead phone.
