Voicemail for Wireless Home Phone

Activated Wireless Home Phone yesterday (5/17).  Unable to call the device.  Get message "Person you are trying to reach has a voicemail box that hasn't been setup yet.  Please try again later.".  I assume that I have to setup the voicemail feature before the device will work, correct?  So I went to www.verizonwireless.com/voicemail and it says:

How do I set up my voicemail?  

To set up your voicemail using your phone:

  1. Enter *VM (*86).
  2. Tap the Call button.
  3. Follow the setup tutorial, which will walk you through selecting a password and recording both a voice signature and greeting for your voice mailbox.

The problem is my phone doesn't have a "Call button" so the setup tutorial never happens.

Problem has been resolved.  After device activation, needed to call *228, press 1,  to "program your Wireless Home Phone" before it will function.
