If you had voicemail on previous phone just dial your old voicemail number and is already set up. Check it by dialing from another phone

Well we have an internal voicemail system provided by our cable/internet provider (Charter). But to access it if you are holding the phone receiver and it's facing you then push and hold the # 1 button that has an envelope on it and that should get you to your voicemail for initial set up and to check messages.
I'm thinking you may be speaking of an "answering machine" when you speak of "voicemail set up." These are two different things: If what you need is an answering machine (something that records messages directly on the phone), this isn't the phone system you want - it has no answering machine. Regarding voicemail, that is not something you can set up directly on a phone device. Voicemail is a service that is provided by your phone company -- like Comcast, Verizon, etc. If you do have VM service as part of the telephone service provided by your phone company, then you will contact them to set it up. After that, the only part the phone itself plays is that when you pick up the phone, there is a stuttering tone that alerts you that you have a VM message; you will then dial the number your phone company has given you so that you can listen to that VM message. Again, VM messages are not recorded on the phone itself. Hope I'm making sense and addressing your concern!
CLC - Voicemail is managed through your (your mom's) telephone company. All you need to do is call your service provider for assistance with setting up and using their voicemail system. Thanks!
