Voice Mail

I do not want to use Comcast Voive Mail for messages; my phone has an answering system already in place that I want to continue using.

And you can do this.... the EASY way is to login into your account online, goto PREFERENCES, then VOICE, then CALL SCREENING.... set the number of rings HIGHER than the number of rings that your personal answering machine is set to.. 

 

Your personal Answering Machine will answer the call and record the message BEFORE the COmcast VM system will lever see the call in that way.

 

Good Luck!

I do not work for Comcast...I am a user of Comcast services just like you. If I have helped you in anyway, please give my post KUDOS or mark my post as a SOLUTION!

Thanks!
