Answering machine

Wanted my messages on my answering machine, so I discontinued comcast voice mail. Now voice mail answers and says not in service, but answering machine not picking up messages. Why is this?

On your answering machine, make sure you set the number of rings to 3 or 4....  It is also quite possible that some backend automated system is forwarding your calls to the Comcast VM system that you have disabled...   If lowering the number of rings on your personal answering machine does not fix the issue, you may need to call into Comcast and have them ensure that your VM is disabled and that NO forwaridng will take place if your answering machine is not kicking on to receive the message.
