Hello,

You can not turn it on or off. You can call comcast support at 1-800 comcast to turn it off completely but it is either off and gone or active.

Re: turn off voice mail

You can set it to ring 9 times before answering, which in effect turns it off, as no one is going to wait 9 rings to leave a message.

The above information is correct. You will need to call into customer care or I can remove your voicemail for you. Do you still need assistance with this?

Re: turn off voice mail

Please Cancel My VoiceMail.  I live in an Assisted Care Center and my Xfinity voicemail is a duplicate of their system.

FrThomasCummins--

I show that you called in on 12/5 and the voicemail was removed. If you still require more assistance please let me know.

Did you see the post that said "You can not turn it on or off. You can call comcast support at 1-800 comcast to turn it off completely but it is either off and gone or active."

 

Sounds pretty clear to me, call 1-800 comcast and request it be turned off.
