Or just dial one or the number of the phone from that phone

Here's a link to Verizon's instructions:  http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/landingpages/voicemail.jsp

Or, as soupcannon said, press and hold 1 (Speed dial 1, normally set to voicemail by default).  It will actually call *86, which is a shortcut to your voice mailbox from your phone.  If, for some reason, you are out of your "home area", roaming, or in an "extended service" area, *86 will not work.  I have been in the habit of changing the # called by Speed dial 1 to my full 10 digit cell #.  That way it will connect to my voicemail automatically no matter where I am calling from.

Hope this helps,

Suzy
