Use the phone company voicemail system for your land line? If yes, how many digits do you dial to retrieve your messages? If it's more than 3, consider programming the speed dial to pick up your messages. Just like your cell phone, if you're familiar with that, you can make the dialing to get messages quick and nearly hands-free.
A tip I want to give you on using speed dial to pick up your messages is that you can put 1 sequence in to enter the access number (the number you dial to access the voicemail system) and your password. The trick here is to learn what the pause button is (often the * or P key) and enter a couple of those between the access number. Here's an example. Jay has to dial, 610-729-0220 to access the voicemail system at Verizon then he enters his password (7727 = Pass) followed by the # sign. So, he can program a speed dial on his phone to be 610-729-0220***7727#*1. That final *1 instructs his voicemail to play the first message.
