Re: Suspending service during vacation

Call 1-800-COMCAST and ask about such an arrangement.

Re: Suspending service during vacation

I called today to have my service suspended and got the run around. The operator told me it could not be suspended until April 1 st. I said I had to call back then or go online. I can't find anything online that allows you to do that. I hate calling a general 800 number and it takes twenty minutes to finally get to speak with someone! Is there a more intuitive way?

Re: Suspending service during vacation

I was told by a Comcast online chat rep to call (888)633-4266. Can't find any useful information online.

Re: Suspending service during vacation

THANK YOU for this link!

 

Now why is it so difficult for Comcast's own support people to provide this? Like a number of others who took the time to chime in on this thread, I called several times and got the runaround on the phone. This website answered all of my questions. Thanks again, THOTTHOM!

As has been stated several times in this thread, this is a customer to customer forum.  We cannot confirm nor deny what the customer service representative told you.

Re: Suspending service during vacation

But the only Vacation suspending service works only for certain cities.  If your city is not in the list, it does not work.  It did not work for me.  Help!!!

I would like to suspend service on May 1, 2011 until Nov. 1, 2011. Would you confirm this and let me know what my monthly charge will be for this period ?

Re: Suspending service during vacation

@markyarling

This is a customer to customer help forum. We cannot confirm, deny, have access to accounts, no access to the local rate sheets, or make any changes to your service. Comcast employees do limited monitoring of this forum unless notified of a issue; notification does not mean they will be able to reply the same day since they take the notifications in order of how they received them,

The only way to handle this is to call in.

Re: Suspending service during vacation

You can start stop vacation hold by going to http://www.comcastflorida.com/seasonal   It works.  Nothing on the comcast site leads to this.  I received a letter giving me the info a couple months back.
