Bottegal:  Here's a thought for you -- I have voicemail, but I also have an answering machine (for my husband; checking messages that way is easier for him).  But the voicemail is also handy for when our power goes out (anybody calling can leave a message on voicemail), or for when I'm on the phone with someone and another call comes in (Call Waiting); if I don't want to switch over to the other incoming call, they can leave a voicemail message.  I simply set the voicemail to pick up after six rings so that it and the answering machine (which is set on three rings) don't conflict.
