One the best things about having an iPhone was that you didn't have to hear the inane 15 second recording after your personal greeting repeating what you said ("leave a message after the beep..."), but now it's back! When I called ATT, they woman I spoke to had no idea what I was talking about, but said she'd research it and get back to me. Of course she didn't. David Pogue had a whole campaign about it "Take back the beep!", and he said Apple insisted that iPhone users be spared this ridiculousness: http://pogue.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/07/30/the-mandatory-15-second-voicemail-instructions/ What happened, and how do I find someone at ATT who even knows what I'm talking about?!
