I had a private voicemail service that did this. Unfortunately they
went bust.

As to Pat's comment, perhaps you didn't notice that this was to notify
you on your cellphone when you have a message on your *landline*
phone. Most all cellphones get an indication of a message left in
your cellphone voicemail box either o_o or some other icon or if not
an icon some send an actual text message to your handset saying "you
have a voicemail dial 123 to retrieve" and also will have an audible
sound to alert you that you have waiting messages.
