The new voicemail skipped messages is not working for me.  When you used to skip a message, the message notification beeping or blinking would stop and you could access your skipped message at a later time before the cue of saved messages.  With the new system, when you skip a message it is still beeping/blinking.  For me, the point of skipping a message is to hear it later when it is convenient for me.  Sometimes I skip a message in the morning for my husband to hear 10 hours later when he comes home.  Then I go out and drop off my kids somewhere and come home and hear the beeping, thinking that it is a new message, but it is just the skipped one.  And then I go and pick up my kids and come home and there is still beeping......hmmm, is it a new message or still the skipped one.  And this can happen many times in the day.  If I save the message then I have to go through the cue of saved message (of which I have six right now) to get to the message he wants when all I wanted to do is 'skip' the message and have it easy to access.  I'm sure the new system is better for some people who want those reminders.  Is there a way to make it work for everyone?  Otherwise, it starts to make it seem like having an answering machine would not only be cheaper, but smarter, too.
