Internet Service Activation Problem

Internet Service Activation Problem

Hello,

 

I have been trying to have my new cable internet activated for a couple of days now with no success. On every call with the service reps, when we get to the step of entering an email address, the system responds that the email address is in use. I have tried what was my old comcast email address and new ones and nothing works. The problem has been referred to "tier 2" support but it still is not fixed and not even a callback with status. Does anybody know any problems or a work around?

 

Thanks

I have notified the Administrator of your problem, but he won't see it until Monday.  In the meantime, can you send him an email with all of the information?  Full name, service adddress, a phone number where you can be reached easily, your Comcast Account number, and a link to this thread.  Send this to:

Detreon_Roberts@comcast.com

Re: Internet Service Activation Problem

Are you using the install cd? That's the only thing I know that you may need your email address for.

 

It should be simple matter for Comcast to provision the modem, WITHOUT the use of the cd.

Re: Internet Service Activation Problem

HI Michael – I’m really sorry about the experience. It does not look as if there are internet service on your account. Did you call in to cancel the service this morning? If so, I’d need to add the service back to your account to get the modem to work properly.
