Did my dream job pass on my application? Is there any way for me to ask them to reconsider?

In February, my dream job was posted on the company’s website. Since I won’t be available to start a new job until May, I didn’t apply. When I saw that the posting was still up over a month later, I submitted my resume in late March. The next day, the posting was taken off the company website. Then, about a week ago, the exact same job was posted on a job search site (ie, Monster, HotJobs, etc).
The company only contacts applicants who are invited for interviews, and I haven't been contacted at all.
What am I to make of this? The obvious answer is that they passed on my application, which kills me because I’m completely qualified for this job and I want it so much.
A friend suggested calling to ask about the status of the search for position, without asking for information about the status of my application specifically. Another suggested calling to ask whether I should re-submit my credentials since the job was re-posted. (Both suggestions are hampered by the fact that I can’t find a phone number for the company’s human resources department. I might have to send an email instead.)
What should I do?
