Submission + - a cell phone my boss can use?

James Paige writes: Question: Where can I find a cell phone with voice mail that my boss can actually use? No phone I have ever seen has been remotely simple enough to suit his tastes.

For his land line he has an answering machine with two buttons "PLAY" and "DELETE" and one flashing light. It is red when there are messages and blank when there are not. In his mind, this is the ultimate pinnacle of of voice mail user-interface, and anything like menu-button-pick-voice-mail-wait-input-password-li sten-to-nasal-female-voice-read-off-a-selection-me nu to get to his messages is just too complex.

His solution? Call me, ask me to check his messages, and then I call him back and report them to him.

But why can't a phone just have a "Play Messages" button? An actual physical button, not a gui on the screen, and not a spoken menu. Doesn't anybody make this? I don't think my boss is so far off base in wanting this. I would like it too.
