Trying to disable features

Trying to disable features

I need voicemail, call waiting and call forwarding disabled on my account for my work-from-home job. I spoke to a chat rep several days ago and asked him to do that. He said he did, and that it could take up to 24 hours to take effect.

I spoke to another chat rep yesterday to confirm that the features had been removed, and he said they had.

However, today I called my husband's cell phone from the home phone, and then tried to call the home phone with my own cell phone. I did not get a voice mail, but the call on the home phone did beep with call waiting. Does it actually just take longer than 24 hours to take effect, or did they not disable these features for me? Is even possible to disable call waiting?

Trying to avoid having to call and ask for a supervisor, hoping someone may have dealt with this before.

To remove these features, call into Comcast at 1-800-266-2278 or 1-800-934-6489 and speak with a CSR about disabling and removing those features you are wanting to cancel.
