PUK code is locked

I went to use my phone this morning after it died last night from a dead battery and it is now telling me that my PUK code is locked. After much research here and through google, I have discovered what it means and have located my unlock code my My Verizon. I have read the tutorial about where to enter in the unlock code, however I do not know how to get to the screen it is showing in the tutorial. Any advice is greatly appreciated, as I don't have access to a phone to call Verizon until this evening.

How do I get to this screen? My emergency dialer does not come up, only my regular call screen. I pulled up my emergency dialer and it does not look like this.

Enter the PUK code then select Next
