Voicemail initial setup

How do I setup voicemail from a different phone?  This is the initial setup. the # key does not work.  There is an automated message stating voicemail has not been setup and the # key doesn't do anything.  Tech support is useless.  Any ideas?  No, I cannot use the prepaid Verizon phone, I am outside the US.

I understand how important it is to ensure you are able to receive voicemails on your device. Let's get your voicemail up and running nosupportverizon. What make and model phone do you have? I also noticed you advised you are out of the country. Do you have a US number active with Verizon Wireless and are trying to access your voicemail while out of the country? Please share details.
