Tel 1 light is blinking on modem.

It has been couple of days that we installed Comcast internet and cable TV only in our apartment. But today I noticed that tel 1 light on mpdem is blinking and we don't have any telephone service installed. We only have internet and basic channels cable TV.

You most likely received a Gateway device ( in lieu of a plain modem ) and it is normal of the TEL 1 light to blink if it does not see an active connection.  You can call into Comcast @ 1-800-266-2278 and have the EMTA side of the gateway disabled, or you can cover it with black electrical tape if it is bothersome.
