Fios Voice Mail problems


I recently enrolled in Fios and now have difficulty with "Message Waiting" as shown on Caller ID screen.

The background info for two problems:

-I was on the phone the other evening and a incoming call had toned in. I could not interrupt the call I was currently engaged. "Message Waiting" was shown on my Caller ID screen. I tried many times to enter my FIOS account at {edited for privacy} and entered my password. The Fios recording than asks to press 1 or 0 for main menu. Pressing 1, I have no messages but then the Fios recording says I have two messages in mailbox one. I can't figure out how to access mailbox one to hear and delete these messages to clear the "Message Waiting" display.

-I currently am using a stand alone answering phone to retrieve messages which picks up on the fourth ring. Verizon Tech told me there would be a conflict because both Verizon Voice Mail and the stand alone phone answer on the same ring count. I need to know if I can still use the stand alone answering phone and have the Verizon Voice Mail pick up at  a greater ring count. That way I can use the stand alone phone to retrieve incoming phone messages and if that phone is in use, the Verizon Voice message will take the call. 

I have spoken with 3 Verizon Techs so far and have not received the answer for these questions. What a time waste... 😞

Please help.... Thanks.
